Plantar Fasciitis Haymarket
Plantar Fasciitis Treatment for Haymarket Residents
If you’re a resident of Haymarket who suffers from Plantar Fasciitis, turn to Dr. Mukesh Bhakta, D.P.M. at Prince William Foot & Ankle Center, PC and South Riding Foot & Ankle Center. This painful condition occurs when the ligament that runs along the bottom of the foot, called the plantar fascia, becomes inflamed. Whether you’ve developed plantar fasciitis as a result of over exercising, because of weight gain, or simply due to the wear and tear that accompanies the natural aging process, you can count on Dr. Bhakta to find a treatment that suits your lifestyle.
We depend on our feet to support us through various physical activities. This can include exercising, chasing after a toddler, and even making short trips to the mailbox. No matter the intensity of the activities your feet are tasked with supporting, Dr. Bhakta can tailor a treatment plan that allows you to remain as active as possible. As a lifelong athlete and the father of young children, he realizes the importance of being able to “stay on your feet” during podiatric treatment. To this end, Dr. Bhakta commonly recommends one or more of the following minimally impactful treatments:
- Calf stretches
- Rolling a frozen water bottle or frozen golf ball under the arch and heel
- Non-impact exercises
- Foot orthotics
Dr. Bhakta employs the same philosophy of personalizing his patients’ treatment regimens to their specific needs for other podiatric conditions, including ingrown toenails, plantar warts, heel spurs, and ankle sprains, among others.
