After a few drinks and some motivation from your friends, you decided that it would be a great idea to go out onto the dance floor and show them all of the moves you had kept locked away for the past three years. Everything went well, until you woke up the next morning with your foot so sore that you couldn’t even dream of walking on it. What is that pain? Did you break your foot somehow? Sprain it? Or could it be plantar fasciitis?

Plantar fasciitis is the inflammation of the tough tissue on the bottom of the foot. Typically, it occurs along the plantar fascia, which extends from the heel all the way down and attaches to the toes. Essentially, it makes up the majority of the bottom of your foot. This condition not only causes pain in this area, but it can also cause heel spurs.

Pain from plantar fasciitis is usually at its worst in the morning and eases up by the end of the day. That is why it is common for people to wake up with the pain seemingly out of nowhere. 

One of the major causes of plantar fasciitis  is continuous, repetitive stress to the foot. This means that all of that stomping from dancing to Cotton Eye Joe only made things much worse, and likely caused the pain to begin. Another cause is poorly fitting shoes. If your shoes do not fit and have no arch support, you can also find yourself facing the pain of plantar fasciitis.

Treatment

For mild cases of plantar fasciitis, rest, stretches, and over the counter pain medication can ease pain and allow for the arch to heal over time. If pain persists or worsens, you should call a podiatrist right away. Dr. Mayer Salama and Dr. Daniel Salama, located in Dearborn, Farmington Hills, Clarkston, and Trenton, Michigan can address all of your podiatry related questions and problems.
