What is plantar fasciitis?

Plantar fasciitis is an overload injury to the heel that is generally common in athletes. The tendon that connects the heel to the forefoot is then irritated. This usually causes pain complaints when standing and walking, among other things. This injury is partly caused by having too short muscles, especially in places such as the calves or in the sole of the foot. This causes the tendon plate to be under high tension and becomes overloaded. The symptoms can also be caused by prolonged exercise, walking or standing.

What are the symptoms of plantar fasciitis?

When there is a plantar fasciitis, several complaints can occur in the heel. These are defects that irritate the heel to perform daily operations.

Plantar fasciitis complaints that may arise include:

  • Nagging pain under foot at heel level
  • Radiated pain to the inside of the foot
  • Radiated pain to the toes

The pain symptoms can usually be felt in the morning when you get up or when you get up after a long time. Also, some people may experience pain while standing or walking.

Treatment of plantar fasciitis

The treatment of plantar fasciitis actually begins with a period of rest. After a long period of time enough rest, it is recommended to wear a support device. A night splint of Pro-orthic is a good example of this. These night pallets ensure that the foot is supported in the desired places, but not immobilized. This ensures that you can still keep moving.

Only in some cases that last 9 to 12 months. Surgery is proceeded when the above (too) produces little result.

Exercises for plantar fasciitis

How do you tape a plantar fasciitis?

Fasciitis plantar tapping gives after the night splint the best support to the heel. The purpose of taping is to ensure that the tendon plate cannot stretch too far: this prevents the tendon plate attachment to the heel from being overloaded. It has to be taken into account that the tape is placed correctly, otherwise it can backfire. In addition, it should be be taken into care that the skin is not damaged by the tape.

Use professional sports tape and leave lesser tape behind. Bad tape can quickly cause skin damage, which should stop treatment.

The tape is applied by applying long strips of tape in the longitudinal direction of the foot, interspersed with transverse strips to keep the tape well in place. In addition, tapping the heel is very important to keep the focus on the heel.
