Heel Pain that Wont Heal How to Treat Chronic Plantar Fasciitis Seattle Heel Pain Specialist

I want to talk for the next couple of minutesabout chronic heel pain. So if you’re someone who has had heel pain, maybe even diagnosedwith plantar fasciitis and you haven’t had the standard treatments and you’re just notgetting better, we have to consider that a chronic problem and look at how we treat that.Now, one of the good things is that there’s been a tremendous amount of research on thisover the last last maybe 10 or 20 years. I would say there are a lot of different waysto treat this now that weren’t available before. Prior to that, the only way to really treatthis chronic plantar fasciitis that wasn’t getting better was to do surgery, and surgeryis almost never needed anymore. So, the condition

that normally causes this chronic heel painis a condition called plantar fasciosis, and that is different than plantar fasciitis.Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the plantar fascia as it attaches into the heelbone here. Here is the plantar fascia coming down and attaching in down there. Plantarfasciosis is a condition where that plantar fascia has become thicker than it should be. Where that fascia attaches into the heel bone,it should be about 4 mm thick. However, in the presence of longterm inflammation orlongterm damage to that area, that fascia becomes thicker and can consider it, whereplantar fasciitis is an inflammation, plantar

fasciosis is a thickening or scarring of thatligament, and it just stops healing. So in order to get it to heal, we have to use atechnique that stimulates the healing. And what we do is a little counterintuitive, butwe do something that causes a little bit of trauma to that area, and by that causing thattrauma, we stimulate the healing process again. This is used on the heel. It’s also commonlyused in the other tendons on the body, for example, at the elbow. So there’s differentways to do it. There’s probably five or six different techniques to accomplish the samething. One of the more common ones is a procedure called shockwave therapy, where we use a machineto send shockwaves deep into that tissue,

to try and stimulate that healing process. If you go to our website and do a search forquot;chronic heel pain,quot; you’ll find a detailed explanation of shockwave therapy and the othertreatments that are available for it. With all of these treatments, we also want to useorthotic devices to take tension off of the plantar fascia and pressure off the heel.So again, do some research on our website. If you’re in our area and you’re having chronicheel pain, it is one of our specialties, so please make an appointment to come see us.If you’re not in our area, find a podiatrist that does specialize in heel pain and isn’tgoing to rush into doing surgery on this problem.
