How is Plantar Fasciitis Treated?
Most cases heal with a few months of conservative treatment and over-the-counter pain relievers. Resting and icing your foot can help reduce the inflammation at home.
If the pain is interfering with your life or isn’t improving at home, give us, Advanced Foot & Ankle Centers of Illinois, a call for an evaluation. We’ll examine your foot, discuss your symptoms, then develop the best treatment plan that fits your needs. We utilize a wide variety of the best treatments available today.
We use gentle, advanced healing techniques to get you back on your feet:
Aquaroll therapy uses compression and vibrations to stimulate healing blood flow and soothe the pain. It works through the combination of warm water and glass beads into which your feet are submerged. While your feet are submerged, you will also do some range of motion exercises to help strengthen the hurt area.
EPAT stands for Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology. The EPAT device sends high-energy pressure waves to the injury to activate your body’s healing response and relieve pain. The waves shake up the area to help damaged cells accelerate their repair processes. The resulting increase in blood flow then brings an increase in oxygen and other things to stimulate healing. It also helps increase the blood’s ability to remove excess fluid away and reduce swelling.
Custom orthotics compensate for poor biomechanics by cushioning, supporting, and realigning your feet. The result is pain relief and improved biomechanics. We will mold your foot so that you get a one-of-a-kind perfect fit orthotic that provides you the best support. With this treatment, every step you take is another step towards being pain-free.
