Plantar fasciitis is a very common problem that affects people on the go and athletes and runners. The medical definition of plantar fasciitis is the painful inflammation of the plantar fascis and flexor digitorum brevis at their attachment to the anterior/inferior aspect of the calcaneal tuberosity on the bottom of the foot. The definition from anyone who has ever had plantar fasciitis would be very, very sharp foot pain with every step. It usually gives the patient pain in the heel and/or arches of the foot that is worst with the first steps in the morning and is worsened by activities such as standing, walking, running, and exercising. In many cases the pain can be constant and continue throughout the entire day. The feet can begin to cramp and become achy and fatigued more easily and is only relieved by rest. Dr Dolan is one of the few chiropractors in the Aurora and Naperville areas of Illinois that is fully trained in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of injuries like plantar fasciitis and sees it regularly in his Aurora, IL office.
