It is indeed one of the most common diseases and the most difficult to treat, but by virtue of my experience I collected a lot about the best and safest treatment methods
What are the causes of heel pain
There are many reasons, the most important of which is
Plantar fasciitis is the main cause (more than 70%) and is sometimes called foot thorn..of the less common causes
Osteomyelitis (inflammation of the bone)
Paget’s disease of bone
There is no doubt that each case has a different treatment..but we are talking here about plantar fasciitis and how to treat it.
What are the causes of plantar fasciitis?
Plantar fasciitis can develop when there is constant pressure and pressure on the plantar fascia. This isn’t just due to long-distance running or regular running. There are also some factors that can significantly increase your risk of this type of injury.
One of the important observations that I saw is that there is no significant relationship between heel pain and high uric acid in the blood. Most of the patients had a normal percentage of uric acid. It was also noted that there was no close relationship between heel pain and the presence of bone spurs, as many patients had spur without pain and vice versa.
In fact, the common factors among the injured were three main things
One of the most common factors that lead to this injury is not wearing proper shoes. Shoes that do not support your heel and bottom of your foot will increase your risk of developing this type of injury. You can also develop this injury when you don’t warm-up and cool down properly before and after running. Also, when you always run on very hard surfaces, you tend to have stress on the bottom of your foot. Another malpractice that increases your risk of injury is when your mileage increases suddenly. As a beginner, it is always safe to run slowly but surely.
People who are severely overweight are also more likely to develop plantar fasciitis or plantar fasciitis.
What is the treatment for plantar fasciitis?
It is not surprising that plantar fasciitis persists for a few weeks, two months, and it is a nagging and stubborn pain on treatment, so all measures must be taken to get rid of it
Most of the patients were saying that we can’t lose weight because we can’t walk and that puts us in a bad cycle and this cycle had to be broken by a combination of measures
At first, I told them that losing weight does not start with sports, but with diet, and whoever adhered to the diet was able to reduce his weight by a remarkable degree
During the diet period, it was necessary to perform some exercises aimed at making the plantar fascia and calf muscles lengthen by following this program first and placing a night brace second.
One of the most important devices that I used and that gave excellent results was the night splint. It was one of the most effective devices on the treatment.
Many of them felt comfortable and recovered,
then the medical shoe came in order to walk and reduce weight. One of the most important characteristics that should be in the medical shoe is that it grips the foot comfortably, not that it is wide or narrow, and it must have a soft lining on the foot and have concavity In the middle to support the arch of the foot and have a slightly high heel…
For those who owned shoes, we would describe them with insoles to adjust and support the soles of the feet.
All of these procedures gave excellent results for those who adhered to them and were able to reduce weight easily and change his life and get rid of his pain in an excellent way..
In the end, I say that this disease is one of the annoying and difficult diseases to treat if the patient does not adhere to the complete treatment plan, but adherence and the application of what is necessary will keep you away from pain and from temporary cortisone injections and from surgeries that we do not recommend at all
