Plantar Faciitis is a medical term for inflammation of the connective tissue in the bottom of the foot. This can also include pain in the heel area that is generally most severe in the morning.
Causes of plantar faciitis include a flattening of the arches and an arch drop that might result from weight gain, over activity or lack of flexibility in the calf muscles to name a few. Treatment includes decreasing the inflammation and addressing the cause of the condition.
Custom foot orthotics are a way that we help correct the issue that caused the plantar faciitis, decrease the inflammation and get you back to healthy feet.
