Get the highest level of care in Colorado Springs for your problems with plantar fasciitis
Here’s what you should know about getting board-certified Colorado Springs plantar fasciitis (heel pain) treatment at Intermountain Foot & Ankle:
Severe heel pain is a symptom of plantar fasciitis and is the result of inflammation of the fascia (which runs from the ball of the foot to the heel). The pain might be greatest when standing up from a resting position.
Plantar fasciitis commonly affects people who are women, are overweight, have high arches, have flat feet, or walk or stand on hard floors or surfaces for long periods of time. Plantar fasciitis might also be caused by walking or running with tight calf muscles.
Treatment may include resting, ice packs, medication, and stretching.
The American Podiatric Medical Association has more information about plantar fasciitis.
