What Causes Plantar Fasciitis?

On the bottom of your foot, supporting the arch, is a ligament known as the plantar fascia, which gives plantar fasciitis its name. When this becomes strained, irritated, and injured, you will experience swollenness, pain, and soreness in your feet and heel, most notably after extended periods of rest. Repeated injuries or harm can cause the plantar fascia to rip, which causes chronic discomfort.

Plantar fasciitis is caused by:

Abnormal walking stance

Excessive and extended running, walking, or standing

Wearing footwear that does not fit properly

Obesity

Sore or swollen calves

How Can Plantar Fasciitis Be Treated?

Many medical practitioners turn to medications and surgery to treat just about any complication or condition. If you know anything about our Monmouth County physical therapists, you probably already know that we do not like to rely on these high-risk treatment options. Instead, we have made our careers out of relying on gentle yet effective physical therapy options and advanced rehabilitation techniques not offered at many other clinics.

For patients with plantar fasciitis, we recommend using EPAT, or extra corporeal pulse activation technology, sessions to gradually alleviate the pain and promote healing in your foot and heel. EPAT will send waves of concentrated and directed pressure into your foot, soothing the plantar fascia without the need of dangerous drugs or invasive and debilitating surgeries. You can think of it as a massage for the inside of your foot! Best of all, more than 80% of our patients who have used EPAT sessions for their ailments experience benefits and report their satisfaction.

Could EPAT be right for treating your plantar fasciitis? Contact us at (732) 333-6360 today to learn more.
