Do you have persistent heel pain that leaves you tired, sore, and off your feet more often than not? If you answered yes, you're not alone - many Americans today suffer from a heel pain condition known as plantar fasciitis, which is caused by inflammation on the bottom of the foot, and are left feeling helpless as the pain lingers for days and even weeks on end.

At Basch Foot Care Centers, you'll find the long-term foot relief you need for all your heel aches and pains, as expert podiatrists like Plantar FasciitisDavid R. Basch, PC, DPM, and his crew of trusted foot specialists make it their goal to equip you with everything necessary to ensure that your feet stay in tip-top shape.

When your feet suffer from plantar fasciitis, it's because the connective tissue (known as the plantar fascia) that extends from your toes to your heel bone along the underside of your foot has been overpronated. Overpronation happens when your foot rolls inward over and over again as you walk, eventually flattening out your feet and making your arch longer. This leads to continued discomfort along the plantar fascia tissue, ultimately leading to the inflammation indicative of the condition.

Fortunately, plantar fasciitis can be treated with the aid of Dr. Basch and his helpful podiatrists on site, as they suggest taking conservative approaches such as:

  • anti-inflammatory medications
  • ice pack application
  • stretching techniques
  • orthotic devices
  • physical foot therapy and massage

No matter the treatment that's best for your podiatric profile, you'll be able to find it quickly and conveniently right here at Basch Foot Care Centers using the expert techniques supported by Dr. Basch and his foot care crew.
