Do you have heel pain and/or plantar fasciitis? Are you not sure what to do to get rid of this nagging pain?
Dr. Eric Broadworth is an expert in diagnosing and treating these conditions which is fairly common among active adults, and especially runners.
Here are some of the key take aways!
1) Footwear is important. Make sure you are in shoes that are supportive and comfortable. Avoid wearing high heels, sandals, and flip flops while treating these conditions since these can often worsen and aggravate the injury further. Over the counter orthotics may also be helpful for certain individuals.
2) Night spints are helpful in providing short term relief. These should provide a gradual, low load stretch. It may be uncomfortable at first and difficulty to sleep in which is a common complaint for many patients.
3) An individualized program focusing on stretching and strengthening
