Plantar Fasciitis Treatments for Patients in Manassas, Centreville, Warrenton & Beyond

Plantar Fasciitis
Plantar fasciitis is a podiatric condition that affects the plantar fascia, which is the ligament that connects the heel bone to the toes. Patients who suffer from this condition often experience pain along the bottom of the foot, usually in the arch and/or heel. The most common causes include weight gain, overuse, biomechanical abnormality, and normal wear and tear. If you live in Manassas or any surrounding area and believe you may have plantar fasciitis, turn to Dr. Mukesh Bhakta, D.P.M. at Prince William Foot & Ankle Center, PC and South Riding Foot & Ankle Center. 
As your foot specialist, Dr. Bhakta can recommend a treatment regimen that best suits your individual needs. This may include one or more of the following treatments for plantar fasciitis:
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen or naproxen
  • Cortisone injections
  • Custom orthotics
  • Cryotherapy (the application of ice)
  • Calf stretching
Dr. Bhakta may also perform an X-ray or other diagnostic procedure to determine whether your plantar fasciitis symptoms are being caused by any other podiatric conditions, such as heel spurs or pinched nerves.
