Stemming from a mission to deliver personal care to each of our patients, Rouse Hill Physio provides unique services for patients in their region, allowing athletes, professionals and those suffering chronic pain to find relief in their movements.

What is plantar fasciitis?

Plantar fasciitis refers to a very common source of heel pain, originating from the plantar fascia. This part of your body is a thick, fibrous band of connective tissue that helps with limiting the flatness of your foot. Plantar fasciitis is usually caused by injury, but is more common with flat footed patients. It is also more likely in females, overweight people, runners, or workers who walk or stand on hard surfaces. The pain is characterised as mild at the heel bone, and can occur in the morning or after a long period of sitting.

Untreated plantar fasciitis can lead to chronic pain, as well as problems with your back, foot or knee, due to a change in walking. If you find you’re waking up with sharp pains in your ankle, it’s important you seek treatment from a physio.
