Plantar fasciitis treatment
Plantar fasciitis is a very uncomfortable and painful sindrom that engages the heel area
If you have problem with plantar fasciitis, you will have to stop with sport activities for some time.
-Why are you limping? –My heel hurts. I must have that heel spurn thing. I have to run a lot to get rid of it.
It's not a joke. This is a conversation led by two marathon runners on the start of a race (discretion is guaranteed). I must state that heel problems are fairly common with our marathoners, at least according to the survey that I myself conducted. However, if heel pain is dealt with by „running to get rid of it“, it's bad news.
Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common problems for runners. Since our feet experience great stress, it's no wonder that the heel as one of our main strongholds reacts to something not being quite right by sending signals of pain. Pain in the heel is not presented only by heel spur, as most runners believe. First we must see in which part of the heel did the pain occur.
Heel bone (calcaneus) serves as a vertex for two very important anatomic structures for runners. On the back side calcaneus is connected to the Achilles tendon, and on the lower side to plantar aponeurosis. So painful heel syndromes are in marathoners a result of precisely these two structures.
