Flat Feet  Las Vegas, NV

Flat Feet

Flat foot is a condition where the arches on the inside of your feet are flattened which causes the sole of the foot to touch the floor when standing upright. It is likely for flat feet to be caused by the arches not fully developing during childhood and is considered a very common and painless condition. On the other hand, flat feet can occur after an injury or from the normal aging process.

While it is common not to experience any pain or symptoms of flat feet, some people do tend to sense pain in the heel or arch area. Physical activity can irritate the area and inflame the foot along the inside of the ankle. This can be caused by the tendon that is supporting the arch being stretched as it is depreciating.

Heel Spurs/Plantar Fasciitis  Las Vegas, NV

Heel Spurs

Heel spurs occur in at least 50% of people who have plantar fasciitis. Past treatments for heel spurs, a bony growth that begins on the front of your heel bone and points toward the arch of your foot, included surgery to remove the growth. Nowadays, surgery is rarely a treatment option and more plans for physical therapy, ice, and pain medications are used to treat heel spurs.

Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain. It is caused by the irritation and inflammation of the large band of tissue that connects your heel bone to your toes (plantar fascia). Some symptoms include stabbing pain that usually occurs in the mornings. As you walk around on the foot the pain normally decreases, but it can return after standing for long periods of time.

Runners, those who are overweight, and those who wear shoes with minimal support are some people that are at a higher risk of plantar fasciitis. In addition, age and intense exercise that focuses on using the ball of the foot (i.e. dancing) are likely to cause plantar fasciitis.

It is important to pay attention to the symptoms of plantar fasciitis since leaving it untreated can result in constant heel pain. contact us today at (702) 362-2622!
