Frequently asked questions in foot and ankle traumatology

Frequently asked questions about foot and ankle pain.

What is plantar fasciitis?

Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common injuries in runners, the result of repeated impacts on the feet. Weight, height, age, having one leg shorter than the other, and especially the type of stride, are other factors that influence what is the most frequent cause of heel pain.

It is an injury that represents 10% of all injuries in runners.

Specifically, plantar fasciitis occurs when there is inflammation due to overloading of the plantar aponeurosis, the tissue that connects the heel to the toes and creates the arch of the foot. In this respect, plantar fasciitis is a disabling, recurrent injury that tends to become chronic, and it is vital to treat it at the first symptoms, as once established, the solution becomes more complex.

Which specialist treats plantar fasciitis?

In terms of treatment for plantar fasciitis, the podiatrist is the most appropriate professional to treat your condition, given that it is a pathology that originates from
due to mechanical disturbance. In the acute phase, various professionals may be involved in treating plantar fascia inflammation, such as a foot and ankle orthopaedic surgeon.

Recovery from plantar fasciitis surgery

As we said, plantar fasciitis is an ailment that can be complicated to cure and, if not treated in time, can become a chronic problem. Nowadays there are treatments that can be carried out at home, or that need to be performed by a specialist.

If plantar fasciitis surgery is necessary, recovery to normal life must be done progressively, and always in coordination with the specialist in case the insoles have to be readapted to the new situation.

Recovery can take days, weeks or even months in very chronic cases. This is accompanied by progressive training of strength, endurance and proprioception to avoid pain in the stride.
