What Is Plantar Fasciitis?

The Experts At South London Foot Clinic Are Here To Help

If any of these symptoms sound familiar to you then please get in touch:

  • ¬†Sharp stabbing pain in the plantar heel or into the arch first thing in the morning
  • Pain after exercising or walking or even the next day
  • Pain that may start at the beginning of exercising, but goes away after a bit...only to come back again later.

 

What is Plantar Fasciitis?

Plantar Fasciitis is caused by inflammation of the plantar fascia. This is a thick band of tissue which connects the heel bone to the toes, spanning the length of the bottom of your foot. 

Most people identify plantar fasciitis by the common heel pain it causes. This can be especially painful in the mornings or after periods of inactivity or over-activity. 

The pain can range from mild discomfort to sharp, stabbing sensations. Often characterised by tender or swollen underfoot areas with stiffness and tightness that causes reduced mobility. 

The South London Foot Clinic team would like to reassure you that if you are suffering from Plantar Fasciitis, you are not alone. There are millions of people with this common foot condition. 

It can be managed, treated and you can expect a full recovery with the right help.

  • Non-invasive.
  • Precise.
  • Enhances the bodies' regenerative capabilities.
  • Provides instant relief.
