Doctor insights on:
I was just diagnosed with planter fasciitis and Achilles tendonitis. I currently wear Merrell Encore Eclipse2, but do I need sneakers?
Yes: Have a good athletic sneaker is always beneficial for someone suffering from plantar fascitis. The Merrells that you have are great but a sneaker will provide better shock absorption. Having an orthotic arch support in your Merrells and a sneaker provides the maximum support for the plantar fascia but don't forget the other treatments: ice, stretch, etc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Start Underusing.: Plantar fasciitis, whether one foot or both, just doesn't pop up one day for no good reason. There is always a cause for the for overuse of the tissues involved. It takes time and or abuse for these dense connective tissues to be injured and it will take time for the symptoms to resolve. The sooner you get back to underusing rather than over using the sooner you will be on your way to resolution. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

can anyone help me with a continuing foot pain i have? I injured it running at the end of july. I’m pretty sure it’s planters fasciitis – pain in heel for a while, then relocated to 2 toes lately (probably j
While : While it's entirely possible to develop plantar fasciitis from an injury, by far, the most common presentation with plantar fasciitis is the slow, gradual onset of pain with no associated trauma. Pain is commonly described as heel pain, worse especially after rest. If you injured your foot back in july and you're still having pain, there is a fair chance you may have broken a bone or tore a ligament. I would therefore say yes, by all means, go get this checked out. I only hope that you haven't waited too long, because if it's been fractured or a ligament torn for all this time and you've been walking on it, the odds of a complete recovery at this point is severely compromised. Please go to either a podiatrist or foot& ankle orthopedist and get checked out. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Impossible to say: no one can give a specific answer without being able to examine the heel. If it is tender along the inside edge it is likely to be plantar faciitis. ...Read more
Inflammation. : Plantar fasciitis is inflammation in the thick, fibrous band of tissue that helps support the arch of your foot. This can occur because of poor shoegear (unsupportive flats, heels, flips flops, old canvas shoes), an increase in activity (training for an athletic event), or an increase in weight or other stress to your feet. See your podiatrist for treatment options. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Many bacteria!: Necrotizing fasciitis ("flesh-eating disease") is a rare tissue infection usually caused by strep a, but now often mrsa--methicillin-resistant staph aureus bacteria, or multiple other bacteria. This is not a single "super-bacteria" that causes flesh-eating infections (though MRSA is now more common), but any tissue infection with one of several bacterial causes that can spread and destroy rapidly. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: While plantar fasciitis can be very painful, the emergency room is not the appropriate place to be seen for this and uses the resources that should be used and are needed to treat patients with serious injuries and medical conditions. Schedule an appointment with a foot specialist (many offices have the ability to schedule same or next day appointments) or see an urgent care instead. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
