Treatment for patients suffering from Chronic Heel Pain

What is Proximal Plantar Fasciitis or Chronic Heel Pain?

Proximal Plantar Fasciitis is the inflammation (irritation or injury to tissues) of the plantar fascia. Proximal means nearer to the heel of the foot. The plantar fascia is a tight band of fibrous tissue which begins at the heel, travels across the arch, and ends at the ball of the foot. The inflammation (irritation or injury to tissues) and pain is most often felt at the inner part of the heel and may extend into the arch.

What Causes Chronic Heel Pain?

Chronic heel pain is usually the result of repetitive over-use and over-loading (running, walking and standing) of the foot causing thickening of the plantar fascia, loss of elasticity and decreased blood flow to the tissue.
