Successful Treatment for Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis, also known as heel spurs, is a common but very painful condition of the foot. This condition is caused by plantar fascia tissue which does not properly absorb shock, leading to tearing and inflammation. If you have been diagnosed with plantar fasciitis, it is important that you see a doctor who is trained and experienced in the treatment of this condition. We have more than 40 years of experience treating patients with plantar fasciitis, in addition to all types of other foot and heel problems.
