What is plantar fasciitis?
When you have plantar fasciitis, you experience pain and inflammation within your foot that goes from the heel bone all the way to your toes. There is a thick, broad band of tissue within the bottom of your foot that has the responsibility of acting as your "shocks" when you are actively running, jumping, walking, stomping, and more. When these shock absorbers are compromised with pain, every movement can be hard to endure within your feet. Dr. Richard Swails and Dr. Dustin Lloyd both specialize in podiatry and have great experience in diagnosing and treating plantar fasciitis.
There are various treatment options to alleviate plantar fasciitis, depending on the exact cause of the pain. To find out what is wrong, we offer a consultation session, physical examination, and diagnostic imaging if needed. For many patients, we manage their care with one or a combination of the following interventions:
- Pain medications
- Orthotics (shoe inserts)
- Steroid injections
- Physical therapy
- Surgery (for more severe or chronic conditions)
During a careful consultation, Dr. Swails or Dr. Lloyd will evaluate your symptoms and determine the best treatment or procedure needed for your specific concerns. Make an appointment with our office in Frisco, TX at your earliest convenience. Let's check out why you have stabbing pains in your feet with plantar fasciitis.
