Description: 042413 noah and lopezJoakim Noah, the famous center for the Chicago Bulls Basketball team, is currently going through a tremendous amount of pain due to plantar fasciitis. Due to this condition, the athlete is limited playing time on the court. “It really sucks.” Noah told reporters.

“It feels like you have needles underneath your foot while you’re playing. It’s not easy, but that the end of the day, you do what you’ve got to do. I’m trying to stay focused on getting better every day,” said Noah  According to editor Jeff Zillgit, When asked about how his foot felt in Monday's game Noah stated in sarcasm: “It feels great.”  

If you are currently experiencing pain in the ball of your foot or heels, where the plantar fascia is located, then we recommended you seek the care of a podiatrist like Dr. Mayer Salama of Salama Foot Care. Dr. Salama can examine your feet and work with you to provide an appropriate treatment option to ensure healing and recovery.
