Plantar fasciitis is a very common complaint. The plantar fascia ligaments experience a lot of wear and tear in your daily life. Normally, these ligaments act as shock absorbers, supporting the arch of the foot. Too much pressure on your feet can damage or tear the ligaments. The plantar fascia becomes inflamed, and the inflammation causes heel pain and stiffness.
The major complaint of those with plantar fasciitis is pain and stiffness in the bottom of the heel, though some experience pain at the bottom mid-foot area. This develops gradually over time. It usually affects just one foot, but it can affect both feet. Some people describe the pain as dull, while others experience a sharp pain, and some feel a burning or ache on the bottom of the foot extending outward from the heel.
The pain is usually worse in the morning when you take your first steps out of bed, or if you’ve been sitting or lying down for a while. Climbing stairs can be very difficult due to heel stiffness.
After prolonged activity, the pain can flare up due to increased inflammation. Pain isn’t usually felt during the activity but rather just after stopping.
Causes of plantar fascitis are
1. Being overweight or obese.
This is due to the increased pressure on your plantar fascia ligaments, especially if you have sudden weight gain. Women who are pregnant often experience bouts of plantar fasciitis, particularly during late pregnancy.
2. Over strain:
If you’re a long-distance runner, you may be more likely to develop plantar fascia problems. You’re also at risk if you have a very active job that involves being on your feet often, such as a factory worker or a restaurant server. Active men and women between the ages of 40 and 70 are at the highest risk for developing plantar fasciitis. It’s also slightly more common in women than men.
3. Foot problems :
If you have foot problems, such as very high arches or very flat feet, you may develop plantar fasciitis. Tight Achilles tendons, which are the tendons attaching your calf muscles to your heels, may also result in plantar fascia pain. Simply wearing shoes with soft soles and poor arch support can also result in plantar fasciitis.
4. Calcaneal spur :
Plantar fasciitis isn’t typically the result of heel spurs. A heel spur is a hook of bone that can form on the heel bone, or calcaneus, of the foot. According to the American Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), one out of every 10 people has a heel spur, but only one out of 20 people with heel spurs experience pain.
Identifying the cause and treating it would be an ideal way of curing the problem from the root.
We may need anti inflammatory remedies, like aconite, belladonna, bryonia, viburnum opulus etc or weight reducing medicines like fucus or phytollacca or medicines to cure calcaneal spur. But a constitutional approach of treatment is more better as it gives long term results for curing the problem completely. This can be done only after a detailed case analysis. Meet a good and experienced homeopath in your area and seek his or her help rather than looking for temporary solutions.
