Plantar Fasciitis - What is it?
The plantar fascia is a thick fibrous band of tissue in the bottom of the foot which runs from the heel to the base of the toes. When placed under sudden or continual increased strain/load, the plantar fascia can become injured generally at the point where it inserts into the heel bone.
Medical Laser therapy in the management of Plantar Fasciitis
Medical Laser therapy is the application of red and near infrared light over an injured site to reduce inflammation, accelerate tissue healing and reduce pain. Could this be the solution for your heel pain?
Are Heel Pain and Menopause related?
Pre-menopause women have a lower risk of soft tissue injury than men do but once menopause kicks in and oestrogen levels drop - soft tissue injury risk increases. So is age really related to heel pain?
Shockwave Therapy for Heel Pain
Shockwave therapy is recommended for chronic soft tissue injuries, particularly those that have not responded to typical conservative treatment (ice, heat, stretching, strengthening, massage, supportive footwear, orthotics etc). Chronic Plantar Fasciitis and Achilles tendinopathy are the most well-researched and the most commonly treated conditions with shockwave therapy.
