A tight ligament on the bottom of your foot that’s slowly progressed to the point of chronic pain and disability has the potential of permanently damaging your ability to even walk without pain. At the podiatry center in Clifton Dr. Velimir Petkov expertly diagnoses your pain and, if you have plantar fasciitis, recommends a rigorous treatment plan to keep you out of surgery. But when that doesn’t solve the problem, he’s the best doctor to perform plantar fasciitis surgery to get you back on your feet and back to your previous level of activity. Call for a clear diagnosis and an end to your heel and foot pain.
Plantar fasciitis is a painful condition that results in excruciating heel pain. It’s often a chronic foot pain condition that’s caused by tiny tears and strains to the plantar fascia, which is the long ligament that runs along the bottom of your foot. Plantar fasciitis is most common among people between 40 and 60. You may be at risk for the condition if you:
- Run or perform other exercises that require consistently hard impacts on your feet
- Have flat feet
- Tend to have high arches
- Have overly tight muscles in your calves
- Suffer from arthritis
- Are overweight or pregnant
- Consistently wear high heels
Your foot doctor in Clifton offers a number of treatments for plantar fasciitis ranging from lifestyle changes and orthotics to physical therapy and extracorporeal shockwave therapy. But if your pain is still significant after six months of these conservative treatments, Dr. Velimir Petkov may recommend plantar fasciitis surgery.
Consequences of Ignoring Heel Pain
Surgery is always the last option. While it’s normal to want to avoid plantar fasciitis surgery, don’t let your fear stop you. Your only chance of being able to continue with your current activity levels may be this procedure. Leaving your feet untreated can lead to long-lasting, chronic pain and permanent damage to your foot.
Making adjustments to your gait to alleviate the pain, for example, can cause foot and ankle fractures, heel spurs and other foot injuries. Eventually, due to your improper gait, you may develop leg and back pain. Chronic plantar fasciitis may even result in your never being able to return to your favorite sports or running routine.
