Thank you for visiting Central Florida Foot and Ankle Center. We treat patients who suffer from sprains, breaks and other foot ailments like plantar fasciitis Winter Haven. We also provide orthotic therapy for those in need of shoe inserts that help to alleviate painful foot and heel conditions. Plantar fasciitis, also known as heel spur syndrome, stems from an inflammation of the band of tissue that extends from the heel to the toes. The fascia of the foot becomes irritated and painful, forming heel spurs.
Plantar fasciitis Winter Haven can form as a result of stress fractures, arthritis, and tendonitis. In some cases cysts are a culprit. Being overweight and spending long hours on the feet can also contribute to plantar fasciitis. It causes ankle pain, which can be aggravated by wearing non-supportive footwear. Non-supportive footwear can put abnormal strain on the plantar fascia, but there are treatment remedies that patients can take part in. Treatments include stretching, ice, limiting certain activities, shoe modification or medication such as anti-inflammatory meds. Other alternatives such as orthotic devices can help, which are shoes created at our offices to help the foot heal and take the pressure off.
Injections, night splints and physical therapy help to relieve the heel pain and ankle pain that stem from plantar fasciitis as well, with surgery being used as only a last resort. Foot pain can vary and can happen to anyone, especially those who play sports. For sports injuries, we treat the condition before recommending proper therapy for those who have aggravated injuries. Our plantar fasciitis Winter Haven treatment options also vary by patient and on a case by case basis. Central Florida Foot and Ankle Center has been treating patients all across the central Florida area with the best in foot care, surgeries and treatments.
