My Plantar Fasciitis is Gone
Shane came in with Plantar fasciitis, which is an inflammation of a thick band of tissue that connects the heel bone to the toes. It is a very common condition with more than 3 million US cases per year.
The condition is usually self-diagnosable with lab tests or imaging rarely required.
It is noticed when tissue runs across the bottom of the foot and becomes inflamed and painful.
Symptoms include stabbing pain near the heel whereas the pain might be worst in the morning.
Some traditional treatments include physical therapy, shoe inserts, steroid injections, and surgery.
Shane got no relief from the cortisone shot he got before coming to the West Clinic.
He remembered other treatments he had gotten at the West Clinic and had good results.
We did some injections and within 2-3 weeks he was seeing big results and is very happy.
Three years have passed and he has been pain-free.
