Plantar fascitis: See a podiatrist. Plantar fasciitis is, a pull/sprain of the plantar fascia from where it attaches to the heel bone on the btm of the foot. Txs include rigid arch support to decrease the pull of the fascia, combined with antiinflammatory medication (oral and/or injectable) to reduce the inflammation. A partial release may be done surgically in chronic cases that dont respond.
