Plantar Fasciitis symptoms
Most patients describe the pain as being like a hot knife sticking into the bottom of the foot. Others describe it as sharp, hot, searing pain in their arch or heel of the foot.
Classically, plantar fasciitis presents with heel pain that is usually worse:
- During, or more commonly after, activity, exercise or standing for long periods of time
- At the end of the day or after standing on your feet for long periods of time
- And can make you hobble during those first few steps out of bed in the morning, but tends to get a bit better once your feet have “warmed up after a few steps”. However it may return after long periods of standing or after getting up from a seated position.
If you experience any of these symptoms, you might be suffering from plantar fasciitis and appropriate treatment is required by one of our podiatrists at Elite Podiatry.
