Anatomy of Foot Pain
Joe Athlete has been jogging for three months when he developed heel pain. He tried resting, heel pads and aspirin, but the pain persisted and was worse after sitting or sleeping.
Examination revealed a diagnosis of plantar fasciitis. The plantar fascia is a strong connective tissue that helps support the arch and attaches to the heel. Joe Athlete also had excessive pronation which means that the arch tends to roll inwards in stance position.
Joe was initially treated with anti-inflammatory medication and (strapping) taping of the foot for several weeks. Later, prescription-made functional orthotics were fashioned from a cast of Joe's feet, to prevent the excessive straining due to pronation. Joe is now functioning well and is pain free.
Pain is your body's signal that you have a problem. If you have foot pain, your Podiatrist can often help.
