Does your heel hurt every time you take a step? You could have plantar fasciitis, or the inflammation of

your heel every time you walk can quickly make your life miserable-but you don't have to suffer with this
condition for the rest of your life.

again. Visit our Salem, OR or Tualatin, OR clinic to stand, walk, and run the way you
How Do You Get Plantar Fasciitis?
Some people are more prone to developing plantar fasciitis than others. For instance, if you work in a job
where you stay constantly on your feet, you put more stress on this ligament than someone who sits for most
of the day. Athletes-especially runners-are much more likely to develop plantar fasciitis than others. Age
can also contribute to the condition.
If you have arthritis, are overweight, wear shoes that don't support your arches, or tend to roll your
feet inward when you walk, you might develop plantar fasciitis over time.
How Do Podiatrists Treat Plantar Fasciitis?
If you live in Salem, OR or Tualatin, OR, visit our clinic to relieve your pain. Most people benefit from
simple treatments like custom orthotics, which support your arches without straining your ligament. Our
podiatrist might also recommend anti-inflammatory medications, ice, rest, specific stretches, or physical
therapy to strengthen your foot.
Most of the time, this less invasive treatment works. In more severe cases, your podiatrist might
recommend steroid injections or surgery.
