Foot Pain  – Plantar Fasciitis Treatment and or Heel Pain 

Start-up pain in the morning, which can increase over the course of the day, is typical for heel pain or plantar fasciitis.  This makes the normal walking or loading of the heel to toe movement of the foot becomes very difficult. This can be due to the hyperextension of the toes in the metatarsophalangeal joints which in turn gives rise to the tension of the plantar permanent loading and over straining of that planter ligament, fasciitis in its state of weakened tensile strength, leads to a continuous increase in neovascularisation bridging the longitudinal arch of the foot.  In the case of an unsteady skeletal of the foot due to age (increasing from the age of 50), this passive process will increase with all foot deformities, such as a flat or a hollow foot in particular.  Unsteady foot changes lead to an increase tractive stress on the three-layered planter ligament on the heel of the bone insertion.  This results in microtears failed to repair of the tissues with the generation of neovessels and accompanying increased pain fibres portions. And pain fibres, the full picture is of chronic plantar plantar fasciitis and heel pain.

There are other factors to consider such as increased weight, different ways in which people walk standing activities and reduced mobility in the ankle joint as well. The continuing inflammatory processes ultimate lead to reactions of the osteoblasts in the matrix, forming an apparent bony calcaneal in spur which is however responsible for the loading pain of the heel.






Helen will take a good 50 minutes with a chronic severe disabling plantar fasciitis with heel pain as with over 5 years experience with chronic plantar fasciitis the Focus and Radial shockwave therapy is more effective and comfortable with using this lovely biomechanical stimulation of the V actor which is micro vibrations which  support the circulation reduces some of the tightness and tension which provides a better eniroment for the shockwave therapy to be more comfortable and effective.  Helen has never found that one could rush a treatment of chronic plantar fasciitis is takes a good 50 minutes as one much relax the tight hard calf muscles as well as the foot ligament and musculature 










The start-up pain in the morning which can increase over the course of the day is typical for heel pain or plantar fasciitis.

The normal loading and heel to toe movement of the foot is then very difficult. This can be due to the hyperextension of the toes in the Met ta-ta so far Lynn joints and the increased tension on the plantar fascia bridging the longitudinal arch of the foot in the case of an unsteady foot due to age (increasing from the age of 50) this passive process will increase all the foot deformities such as flat foot or hollow feet in particular

It is important to make certain you have comfy shoes and with increasing age often heel pain is more common therefore it is important often to use and purchase strong he TO take the impact and comfort the pain which can occur prominently in the heel

Comfy shoes are absolutely essential fitted well because if the foot is now becoming stiffer and more flat this results in micro tears, failed healing of the planter fasciitis with increased permanent loading and overstrain on the ligaments this increases the week can tensile strength leading to continual failure to repair properly.

Shockwave therapy has a part to play in the whole process of reduction and healing of the plantar fasciitis the diagnosis can be made using a diagnostic ultrasound scan to determine the thickness of the fashion which should be around 4 mm

It is really important that you have good strong steady walking in good comfy safe shoes the use of orthotics is often encouraged here or the use of shoes fitted with orthotics

It may be that of orthotics and simple stretching is enough for your plantar fasciitis to recover but there are now robust clinical trials which has proved that adding in radio shockwave treatment to the whole picture of treating therapy resistance planter fasciitis and where all normal conservative measures have failed but the plantar fasciitis over 3 to 4 months, because that is the time it takes the cells to heal, will settle down

It is really important to emphasize that the use of Heavy Duty Heel Cups inserted in comfy shoes can be a vital part of reducing pain and stimulating recovery of chronic nonresponsive plantar fasciitis
