Plantar Fascitis & Heel Spurs Syracuse
Do you experience heel pain with the first few steps in the morning?
Do you have pain at the center of the heel when you place weight on your foot?
Do you experience dull, aching, or sharp, burning pain in your heel?
Do you feel a pulling sensation in your heel?
If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, you may have Plantar Fascitis – also commonly known as Heel Spurs. Unfortunately this diagnosis is non specific and inaccurate and commonly leads to the application of a wide range of ineffective treatments.
Functional vs. symptomatic Relief
The best treatment method should yield the best results. At our clinic, we aim to obtain the permanent functional resolution of the patient’s Plantar Fascitis. By this definition, a successful resolution of Plantar Fascitis would be…
“A patient who return to full capacity with little or no discomfort, and requires little or no maintenance treatment.”
Compare this to a symptomatic solution, which simply aims to remove pain symptoms without actually resolving the problem.
A functional resolution aims to return the patient to their normal life activities, with little or no pain or discomfort.
