Plantar Fasciitis Treatment

One of the most common heel pain syndromes is called Plantar Fasciitis.

Over the years here at Footfriend we have successfully helped thousands of people get rid of this painful condition. Through a careful examination we can determine whether you have plantar fasciitis or another heel pain problem. This condition will not disappear overnight but we can tailor a program for you at your first appointment to help alleviate this painful problem.

Diagnosis & symptoms

This painful heel problem is diagnosed through careful history taking and an examination of your feet.

People with plantar fasciitis typically complain that they have pain in their heel when they get out of bed in the morning. This often fades away but can return if you are on your feet a lot during the day.

The pain is also experienced when standing after a period sitting.

Typical causes

As this is a musculoskeletal problem we need to examine you and take a careful history to determine the specific cause. We will also examine your footwear which can be a contributory factor for some sufferers.

How we can help

Through a careful examination we can identify what is causing your problem. From this we can provide a treatment program at your first appointment. We will also advise you on the best footwear for this problem.

We also stock quality gel heel cushions which will not cure your problem but will give you some immediate relief from the pain this problem is causing.

Get in touch to make an appointment at a time that suits you. We look forward to seeing you at our Beverley Clinic; serving Beverley, Hull and surrounding villages.
