One of the most common sources of foot pain is plantar fasciitis. This condition is marked by tiny tears in the tissue at the bottom of your feet, which can cause inflammation, irritation and swelling. The resulting pain in your heel or arch can range anywhere from mild to severe.


If left untreated, plantar fasciitis can worsen over time — and even lead to problems with your foot, knee, hip or back. The good news? A variety of treatment options have proven effective. So if you’re struggling with plantar fasciitis, there’s no reason to suffer any longer.

For more on this topic, be sure to check out VCU Health’s educational guide, “Understanding Plantar Fasciitis.” Download it now for more information on the condition, risk factors, diagnosis and treatment options. You’ll also learn about image-guided tendon treatment, a new, minimally invasive procedure that removes the cause of plantar fasciitis pain at its source — and quickly gets you back to the activities you love.
