Treatment Of Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is caused by a tear of the plantar fascia, which is the major ligament that holds up your arch. As we get older, the ligaments in our arches start to thin out, fail and tear. Usually it takes three injections into the plantar fascia with the prolotherapy solution. This procedure is somewhat painful. For this specific problem, we usually apply ice to the heel before we give the injection, and usually the procedure is tolerated well. During the healing time, patients wear arch supports to help support the arch while it is healing.
