As we approach the warmer months, pain in the heel &/or arch of the foot becomes more common. This is due to reasons such as a change in footwear to unsupportive flat sandals or thongs, & increases in physical activity with the improved weather.
Also called plantar fasciitis or plantar fasciopathy, some predisposing factors can include:
* Tight calf muscles
* Reduced ankle flexibility
* Deep foot muscle weakness
* Individual foot structure (eg. flat feet)
Our physiotherapists can address plantar fasciitis/fasciopathy with hands-on treatment, a home exercise program &/or as part of our clinical exercise/pilates sessions- call or email us to book in! 🦶🏻
