Plantar Fasciitis

What is Plantar Fasciitis?
Plantar fasciitis is painful inflammation of the thick tissue on the bottom (sole) of the foot. This tissue is called the plantar fascia. It connects the heel bone to the toes. Plantar fasciitis occurs when the thick band of tissue on the bottom of the foot is overstretched or overused. Risk factors include: Foot arch problems, obesity or sudden weight gain, long-distance running, especially running downhill or on uneven surfaces, tight muscles, or shoes with poor arch support or soft soles. Plantar fasciitis most often affects active men ages 40 - 70.

What are the symptoms associates with Plantar Fasciitis?
The most common complaint is pain in the bottom of the heel. The pain may be dull or sharp. The bottom of the foot may also ache or burn. The pain is usually worse in the morning, upon taking your first steps, after standing or sitting for a while, when climbing stairs, or after intense activity. The pain may develop slowly over time, or suddenly after intense activity.

How is Plantar Fasciitis diagnosed?
Diagnosis is typically made upon physical exam. Common findings include: Tenderness on the bottom of your foot, flat feet or high arches, mild foot swelling or redness, and stiffness or tightness of the arch in the bottom of your foot. X-rays may be taken to rule out other problems, but having a heel spur may or may not be significant.

What is the typical treatment for Plantar Fasciitis?
First line treatment includes medication to reduce pain and inflammation, heel stretching exercises, rest and wearing shoes with good support and cushions. Other treatments include the application of ice to the painful area, a heel cup, felt pads in the heel area, or shoe inserts, or night splints to stretch the injured fascia and allow it to heal. If these treatments do not work, your doctor may recommend: A boot cast, which looks like a ski boot, for 3-6 weeks, custom-made shoe inserts, or steroid shots or injections into the heel. In a few patients, surgery to release the tight tissue becomes necessary.

The Ateevia Botanica PRIME Difference
Inflammation is the complex response of living tissue to injury. It is a part of life but also can cause significant tissue damage and loss of function. Whenever tissues are injured, an inflammatory response is triggered, usually via symptoms that include erythema (redness), edema (swelling), heat and pain. Inflammation occurs in response to many different causes. Ateevia Botanica's PRIME Therapy helps the body to combat inflammation. It is safe to use for the relief of pain and discomfort due to the lack of side effects or drug interactions reported. We employ certain herbs that are high in essential oils and have anti-inflammatory actions. Furthermore and as discussed in other sections of this website, such as "research," PRIME's potent phytonutrients contain secondary metabolites that produce anti-inflammatory actions by interacting in numerous ways with the inflammatory cascade.
