What can we do to help you?

Our doctors are able to prescribe pain or anti-inflammatory medication for temporary relief. We are also able to provide a corticosteroid injection to the plantar fascia. However, there may be the side-effect of increased risk of plantar fascia tears with physical activity and of heel fat pad atrophy. An orthotic insole can help to restore normal foot biomechanics and reduce over-pronation. Sports physiotherapy techniques can also help you to learn exercises and stretches to reduce the tension in the plantar fascia.

  • Single leg mini squat
  • Single leg bridging
  • Hip flexor stretch
  • Single leg ½ squats
  • Standing gastroc stretch
  • Soleus lunge stretch
  • Plantar fascia stretch

Additionally, Extra-corporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) can help stimulate the healing process at the insertion of the plantar fascia. Another option we offer would be Autologous Conditioned Plasma (ACP).
