If you have plantar fasciitis, you may feel pain in your heel that is most acute during your first few steps of the day, when climbing stairs or after performing intense activity.
There are several conditions that cause foot pain similar to plantar fasciitis including bursitis, tendinitis or a stress fracture. Consequently, if you are suffering from foot and heel pain, it is important to receive a correct diagnosis.
At the Kaplan Center our physicians have years of experience treating patients with conditions such as plantar fasciitis, and we completely reject the notion that “you just have to live with it.”
At your first visit, your Kaplan physician will take the time to explore the onset of your condition, the specific nature of your symptoms and the overall status of your health. You’ll also be asked about the medications and therapies you’ve tried in the past and what has and hasn’t worked for you.
After reviewing all of the factors contributing to your condition, your physician will spend time talking with you about your diagnosis and working with you to create a customized and multi-dimensional treatment plan that addresses not only your immediate pain, but also any possible underlying or co-existing conditions that may be causing or aggravating your symptoms.
We offer a multitude of effective non-surgical treatment options, including:
- Prolotherapy / Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
- Physical Therapy
- Prescription Medications
- Magnesium & Vitamin IVs
- Osteopathic Manual Therapy
We’re here for you, and we want to help. Our goal is to return you to optimal health as soon as possible.
