Plantar fasciitis can easily become a negative part of your daily routine. Wake up. Put your feet on the floor. Suffer a jolt of heel pain and limp a bit until it recedes.

Having your day regularly interrupted by plantar fasciitis is no way to go about life. The good news is that this condition is highly treatable, and the team at Advanced Foot & Ankle Centers of Illinois is highly skilled in treating it.

A Plan for Plantar Fasciitis

If you are not fully certain that your heel pain comes from plantar fasciitis, that’s OK. Any type of heel pain is not normal, and our experts are happy to help you get to the root of the problem and find the relief you deserve.

The key to plantar fasciitis treatment is determining what exactly is causing the strain that leads to it. A variety of factors can be in play, ranging from shoe choices to physical overuse to structural abnormalities. We conduct a thorough evaluation to make a diagnosis, and once we have all the information we need, we can then recommend an effective course of treatment.

Parts of a treatment plan can include traditional methods such as rest and changes to routine, or advanced therapies such as laser and shockwave. Whatever the recommendations may be, they will always be made to best align with your individual situation and needs.

Dr. Breck Tiernan is a superior Podiatrist in every way. He did more to help my right big toe during my first three visits than my previous Podiatrist did in three years—seriously… I highly recommend Dr. Breck Tiernan to anyone in need of outstanding Podiatric care.
