Plantar fasciitis is a soft-tissue inflammation that resides on the heel and foot that is called plantar fascia plantar fasciitis inserts. The plantar fascia is a thick, ribbon-shaped soft tissue (ligament) that extends from the heel bone to the toes; plantar fascia connects the heel bone to the toes and forms an arch or arch at the bottom of the foot. Plantar fasciitis is the most common and most common cause of heel pain.
Plantar fasciitis occurs due to an overstretched or strain of the plantar fascia that causes the plantar fascia to become weak, irritated and inflamed, swollen and painful. Treatment of plantar fasciitis consists of nonoperative (nonsurgical) and operative (surgery). Nonoperative treatment is the primary choice because 90% of patients will recover completely without problems later in the months to months with a nonoperative treatment using plantar fasciitis inserts. But it takes good cooperation between a patient with a doctor. Several checks are needed to make the diagnosis, such as anamnesis or questioning about pain, history of activities undertaken, use of shoes. Examination of pain areas, foot shape, muscle strength, lower limb reflexes, consistency or muscle tone, sense of touch or sensibility, coordination and balance of the lower limbs.
If excessive pulling of the plantar fascia occurs repeatedly, in the long run, it will cause small rips in the plantar fascia area and these small tears will add to the weak plantar fascia and cause recurrent inflammation or chronic processes. Plantar fasciitis may develop into a chronic condition if not treated. This condition can ultimately interfere with daily activities due to the emergence of complaints related to the feet, knees, thighs and back because the abnormalities of plantar fasciitis can cause changes in the way the patient walks. Plantar fasciitis is commonly found in certain conditions, such as a person walking on an excessive pronation. Someone who has a high arch or arch and otherwise on someone who has a flat or flat foot arch. Apply cold compresses with packaged ice cubes or by using cold-pack, to reduce pain and swelling. Compress for ± 20 minutes, 3 or 4 times a day. Use a shoe with soft insole or pads on the foot arch, and use special pads on the heels that are usually made of silicone called heel cushion/heel pad/heel cup on both heels even if only one leg is sore. Do not use damaged shoes for sports or walking.
