Oh, Those Aching Feet!

It’s not your imagination ~ plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the thick, fibrous band of tissue that stretches from the back of the heel, and extending along the bottom of the foot toward the toes. Generally, it seems to feel worse in the morning, but may turn to a dull ache by the end of the day. But, whenever it strikes, it makes every step taken tender or even painful.

Your HealthQuest physical therapist can work with you on a treatment plan that, in addition to over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication, may involve thorough stretching, massage, ultrasound or another modality.

Sometimes that first step is the most difficult (both literally and figuratively!) A free consultation is just a phone call away ~ contact the HealthQuest Physical Therapy location nearest you, and begin your pain-free journey today!
