Healthpointe is now offering treatment for plantar fasciitis at its newest clinic in Los Angeles. This marks the availability of plantar fasciitis treatments throughout all of Healthpointe’s clinics in Southern California including Los Angeles County, Riverside County, San Bernardino County, and Orange County.
Plantar fasciitis is an extremely common condition that leads to a stabbing pain and inflammation along the heel. This condition is prominent in various groups including middle-aged people, athletes, soldiers, and obese people. Additionally, any occupation that maintains workers on their feet for an extended period of time is at high risk of plantar fasciitis. Painful sensations are usually the result of prolonged periods of standing and if untreated the condition can lead to various foot, knee, hip, and back symptoms.
Healthpointe offers several orthopedic and sports medicine treatments to repair the small tears in the fascia, a fibrous band of tissue, that lead to inflammation and pain. Non-surgical treatments include home exercises, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication, orthotics, cortisone injections, physical therapy, and non invasive extracorporeal shockwave therapy. For severe cases Healthpointe orthopedists may suggest plantar fasciotomy.
