Symptoms of Heel Pain or Plantar Fasciitis


Heel pain, often associated with plantar fasciitis, can manifest in several ways. Common symptoms include :

1 1


Sharp or stabbing pain in the bottom of the heel is a primary symptom of plantar fasciitis. The pain is typically worse in the morning or after prolonged periods of rest.

2 2


Many individuals with plantar fasciitis experience stiffness and limited mobility in the affected foot, making it difficult to walk or stand for extended periods.

3 3


The bottom of the heel may be tender to touch, especially near the attachment of the plantar fascia to the heel bone.

Causes of Heel Pain or Plantar Fasciitis

Vida Clinic Heel Pain

Heel pain, specifically plantar fasciitis, can have several underlying causes. Some common factors contributing to its development include :

1. Tightness of Plantar Fascia

The plantar fascia is a thick band of tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot. Tightness or excessive tension in the plantar fascia can lead to inflammation and heel pain.

2. Tightness of Calf Muscles

Tight calf muscles can contribute to the development of plantar fasciitis by placing increased stress on the plantar fascia.

3. Tightness of Hamstrings and Gluteal Muscles

Imbalances or tightness in the muscles of the legs and buttocks can alter the mechanics of the foot and contribute to heel pain.



    Treatment Options

    At Vida Spine Clinic, we offer a comprehensive approach to treating heel pain and plantar fasciitis, aiming to alleviate pain, promote healing, and restore normal foot function. Our treatment options include:

    DNS is a therapeutic approach that focuses on improving the body’s stability, coordination, and movement patterns by activating the deep stabilizing muscles. By utilizing DNS techniques, we aim to enhance the weight distribution on the foot and promote proper alignment and function.

    At Vida Spine Clinic, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive care for heel pain and plantar fasciitis. Our experienced team of therapists will assess your condition, create a personalized treatment plan, and guide you through the recovery process. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and take the first step toward alleviating your heel pain.

    Our experienced therapists utilize matrix therapy and myofascial release (MFR) techniques to release tension and tightness in the plantar fascia, calf muscles, hamstrings, and gluteal muscles. This promotes improved flexibility and reduces strain on the plantar fascia.

    Shockwave therapy delivers controlled energy pulses to the affected area, targeting the attachment of the plantar fascia to the heel bone and the tibialis anterior muscle. This non-invasive treatment promotes tissue healing, reduces inflammation, and relieves pain.

    Targeted trigger point release techniques can help relieve pain and tension in the muscles associated with heel pain, promoting relaxation and improved function.

    Our therapists will design a tailored exercise program to strengthen the muscles of the foot, ankle, and lower leg. Strengthening these muscles helps stabilize the foot and reduce the strain on the plantar fascia.

    Our specialists may recommend appropriate footwear modifications, such as supportive shoes or orthotic inserts, to provide additional cushioning and support to the affected foot.

    Additionally, at Vida Spine Clinic, we recognize the importance of optimal weight distribution on the foot and strengthening for the management of heel pain and plantar fasciitis. We incorporate Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) techniques into our treatment plans to address these aspects effectively.
