Dupage Foot and Ankle, LLC

Plantar fasciitis (or heel pain) is commonly traced to an inflammation on the bottom of the foot typically in the arch or directly on the bottom of the heel. Our practice can evaluate arch pain, and may prescribe customized shoe inserts called orthoses to help alleviate the pain.

Plantar fasciitis is caused by inflammation of the connective tissue that stretches from the base of the toes, across the arch of the foot, to the point at which it inserts into the heel bone. Also called “heel spur syndrome,” the condition can usually be successfully treated with conservative measures such as use of anti-inflammatory medications via a pill or injection, ice packs, stretching exercises, orthotic devices, and/or physical therapy.
