Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the plantar fascia which is the flat and thick band of tissue that connects your heel bone to your toes. It is caused by straining the ligaments that supports the arch of your foot which eventually leads to pain and swelling.
Heel spurs occur when calcium gets abnormally deposited at the heel bone causing a bony protrusion. It is usually caused by strains on foot muscles and ligaments around the joint and the repeated tearing of the membrane that covers the heel bone.
Both plantar fasciitis and heel spurs respond very well to our evidence-based (RCTs) treatment methods and has a high success rate of pain reduction and healing.
