Heel Spurs & Prolotherapy
About 2-3 million people suffer from a painful condition that affects the heel called Plantar Fasciitis. The plantar facia stretches along the bottom of the foot and is responsible for maintaining the arch of the foot. When the plantar facia becomes weakened it starts stretching away from the heel and a heel spur forms
Dr where cortisone shots are given (Prolotherapy).
Plantar fasciitis occurs in both men and women, but is more common in women. Women have a significantly higher incidence of heel spurs due to certain types of footwear that are worn on a regular basis.
Treatment & Prevention
Every time your foot strikes the ground, the plantar fascia is stretched. You can reduce the strain and stress on the plantar fascia by following these simple instructions: Avoid running on hard or uneven ground, lose any excess weight, and wear shoes and orthotics that support your arch to prevent over-stretching of the plantar fascia.
Remember to consult your specialist so you could have a personalized treatment on Prolotherapy.
