At this time of year, after the summer, I find that many people come in complaining of heel pain. I believe it is often caused by wearing less supportive footwear during the warm months, allowing the Planta Fascia to pull on its insertion to the heel bone. Often, wearing more supportive footwear such as joggers for a period of 2-3 weeks, will resolve the pain by relieving the strain on the Plantar Fascia. If it has not helped, professional advice should be sought. In some case orthotics may be required.
