In today’s episode we are going to be going over plantar fasciitis and review the Wise Golden Original potato chip. Courtesy of the Fox family, thank you. Yes, thank you very much Fox’s. These are some of the best looking chips. They are huge. HUGE! They are not crumpled. They are the kind that would cut the side of your mouth open when you try to the bite whole. Let’s hope not, but more on that later.
So plantar fasciitis, everyone is pretty familiar with it. It’s basically pain on the heel and bottom of the foot. Yes. We typically see this presenting as morning pain at the early onset stages. The first 5 or 10 steps are awful. Or after any period of inactivity. So if you drive somewhere or sat down for a while and get back up those first 5-10 steps are really really brutal. That’s a typical pain pattern of plantar fasciitis.
We prefer when people come in on a fairly early stage with this. Some people like to let it go and then it takes a really long time to settle down and get better. Once you end up with soft tissue change, which is the case with any acute inflammatory process. The other one that we discussed earlier was tennis elbow. Any time you have chronic inflammation you end up with tissue changes. And if an “itis” end up as an “osis”. Like tendonitis turns into tendonosis, it becomes a lot harder to treat. Ideally you would come in as soon as you start to develop this pain. If you have this for 2-3-4 days in a row you that is a good time to go to the PT and see what is triggering this.
