Fall Season

With the arrival of fall, there are plenty of opportunities to get outside and enjoy the season on foot. Whether it’s a stroll through the neighborhood to admire the beautiful weather here in Florida. 

The best part of fall in this beautiful state is not having to worry about the cold!

But foot pain can forestall fall walks. Foot pain has many causes. One cause of foot pain you might not be familiar with is plantar fascittis also commonly known as heel pain.
Heel pain is generally the result of faulty biomechanics (walking gait abnormalities) that place too much stress on the heel bone and the soft tissues that attach to it. The stress may also result from injury, or a bruise incurred while walking, running, or jumping on hard surfaces; wearing poorly constructed footwear or being overweight.

Early treatment might involve oral or injectable anti-inflammatory medication, exercise and shoe recommendations, taping or strapping, or use of shoe inserts or orthotic devices. Taping or strapping supports the foot, placing stressed muscles and tendons in a physiologically restful state. Physical therapy may be used in conjunction with such treatments.
It is very important to seek early treatment if you feel any of this symptoms. 

Don’t let foot pain hold you back from enjoying this beautiful weather. Have that pain checked out by our office so you can resume your healthy, active lifestyle.
