  • 5 Ways Your Podiatrist Can Help Relieve Plantar Fasciitis Pain

If allowed to persist, plantar fasciitis can be extremely painful and debilitating, which is why it’s always best to visit your NYC podiatrist for quick treatment. Here are 5 simple ways your foot doctor can help relieve any pain associated with this foot condition.


Your plantar fascia ligaments act as shock absorbers to protect the arch of your foot, which means that they experience a lot of wear and tear in your daily life. Too much pressure on your feet can cause damage to these ligaments and cause your plantar fascia to become inflamed.

This is one of the most common orthopedic complaints that is characterized by the following symptoms:

  • Foot pain
  • Heel pain
  • Stiffness
  • Tenderness in the foot

5 Reasons Why It’s Best to See Your NYC Podiatrist For Plantar Fasciitis

As with most foot conditions, early treatment of plantar fasciitis can prevent this condition progressing from an acute stage to a chronic point where walking, daily activities, and pain relief become much more difficult.

If you are suffering from this foot condition, here are 5 ways your NYC foot doctor can best help relieve any pain and/or discomfort:

1. Customized Orthotics

As with most foot problems, the right balance between support and cushioning is essential for treating plantar fasciitis. The right shoes and orthotics can be very helpful and may be needed to unload the damaging forces on the plantar fascia and the bottom of your heel.

At To Healthy Feet, our highly trained NYC podiatrists are in the best position to assess your footwear and advise you on exactly what is suitable. In addition to this, we use advanced technology to ensure the most accurate orthotic insert is achieved.

2. Stretching and Strengthening Exercises

Doing regular stretching and strengthening exercises can help greatly with plantar fasciitis, but certain exercises at the wrong time can simply exacerbate your condition and make the pain worse. Your podiatrist will be able to give you the correct exercises, and more importantly, tell you when the exercises should be performed.

3. Taping and Strapping

Taping and strapping can provide a lot of initial relief if you suffer from plantar fasciitis. Your podiatrist has the knowledge and experience to help you with advice on helpful strapping. This is usually a short-term treatment option and often used as a diagnostic aid.

4. Splints

If you have a severe case of plantar fasciitis, your podiatrist may recommend wearing a night splint that works to brace your foot and ankle in the proper position as you sleep. These splints will help stretch the plantar fascia and alleviate any pain you may have.

5. Stem Cell Injections

Another treatment option for this foot condition is PRP/Stem Cell injections. This involves the injection of platelet rich plasma into and around the area of injury in the foot. This highly concentrated dose of healing platelets can help speed up the repair process of the injured tissues and ligaments.
