Heel and foot pain can be a burdensome symptom for our patients, as discomfort can be experienced with each step they take, hindering locomotion.
Many different patient populations are required to be on their feet for their job or for various wellness goals, which can exacerbate their painful heel and foot or deter them from exercise.
In this episode, we will explore the most common cause of heel and foot pain: plantar fasciitis. Listeners will learn from a Mayo Clinic specialist in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation how plantar fasciitis develops, how it is properly diagnosed, and learn the best approaches for treatments of this condition to help patients resume their previous physical activities, pain-free.
