/DO YOU SUFFER
FROM HEEL SPURS?
Plantar fasciitis (heel spur) is a common condition affecting the ligament (plantar fascia) that supports the arch of the foot. This ligament attaches to the bottom of the heel and connects to the ball of the foot. When strained, the ligament attached to the heel bone becomes inflamed – resulting in the painful condition called “Plantar Fasciitis”. Dr. Jason Khadavi’s surgery includes an Open Plantar Fascia Release (and heel spur removal). This technique involves a surgical incision that allows direct access to the ligament as well as the heel spur. The incision can be on the inside of the foot, or on the the bottom of the foot.
What is Plantar Fasciitis?
Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the band of tissue (the plantar fascia) that extends from the heel to the toes. In this condition, the fascia first becomes irritated and then inflamed, resulting in heel pain.
What Causes Plantar Fasciitis?
- Faulty structure of the foot from birth
- Daily activities like wearing non-supportive footwear on hard, flat surfaces. A job that requires long hours of standing on a hard surface can result in Plantar Fasciitis.
What are Symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis?
- Pain on the bottom of the heel
- Pain in the arch of the foot
- Pain that may worsen when standing up
- Swelling on the bottom of the heel
How Do I Know that I Need Plantar Fasciitis Surgery?
Most patients with plantar fasciitis respond to nonsurgical treatment options, but a small percentage of patients may require surgery. If, after several months of nonsurgical treatment, you continue to have heel pain, surgery will be considered.
