Chronic Pain Therapy: Helping To Relieve Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is the leading cause of heel pain. The plantar fascia is a long, fibrous tendon that runs along the bottom of your foot from your heel bone to your toes. When this tendon becomes inflamed it can cause intense heel pain. Those who experience plantar fasciitis typically feel sharp, stabbing pains early in the morning that sometimes mellows during the day but it can return after hours of walking, stretching, exercising, or standing. While the exact causes of plantar fasciitis is not always clear, the tendon can become inflamed due to repetitive stretching and tearing. Age, overuse, and activities like running, jumping, and dancing are common causes of plantar fascia tears and inflammation. Those who are overweight may also be more prone to developing plantar fasciitis as the extra pounds can stress the tendon.

Many people are able to heal mild plantar fasciitis at home with RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation) and physical therapy. There are many cases of plantar fasciitis that turn chronic, however, and ignoring it can lead to further damage to your foot, heel, and leg. Patients that ignore chronic plantar fasciitis pain often change the way they walk to lessen the pain which can lead to misalignment of the body, poor balance, and pain in the muscles and joints of the foot, leg, and hip. For those who experience chronic pain, there are a few therapies available for treatment, including shock wave therapy, surgery, and bracing. None of these therapies have very positive outcomes, unfortunately. In recent years, chronic pain therapy has been used to address plantar fasciitis and results have been overwhelmingly positive. Unlike the common pain clinic model, our doctors in Richmond utilize chronic pain therapies to assist the body's natural ability to heal.

Had my initial appointment and met with Amber - she was great. The pricing, which of course is gone over at the very end, was too much for me. It's $1,797.00!! They do offer financing which is great but its still $300 for 6 months or $200 for 9 months.... I just couldn't swing it but with what they offer I believe this...
