Plantar wart treatment:
Plantar fasciitis is a common cause of heel pain, in the plantar aspect, in adults. The disorder classically presents with pain that is particularly severe with the first few steps taken in the morning.
In general, plantar fasciitis is self-limiting, however it can continue over some time and become more severe. The symptoms usually resolve more quickly when the treatment plan is started early after the onset of pain.
Therefore, Cape Town podiatrist Karin Brückner suggests a multi-faceted treatment approach from the beginning. Stretching, strengthening exercises, change of shoes, arch supports known as orthotics, night splinting by using a supportive sock and anti-inflammatory agents to make you less symptomatic if necessary.
Usually, plantar fasciitis is treated successfully by tailoring treatment to an individual’s risk factors and lifestyle. Karin says that listening to a patient’s daily routine and lifestyle is most helpful when treating any condition.
