Plantar Fasciitis is a condition that results from the swelling or inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick tissue on the bottom of the foot. While the condition is invisible to the naked eye, it can be extremely painful and make it difficult to continue sporting activities or even walking.
You are more likely to get plantar fasciitis if you:
- Lower back pain
- Degenerative disc disease
- Herniated disc
- Facet arthritis
- Neck pain
Conservative treatments, including pain relievers and physical therapy are often recommended initially, but recovery can take several months or more.
Learn if nonsurgical options for treating plantar fasciitis with stem cell therapy or PRP therapy may be right for you.
