Plantar Fasciitis

Symptoms

At Browns Physiotherapy And Wellness, we understand the pain and discomfort that accompanies plantar fasciitis. Whether it’s a sharp pain in your heel first thing in the morning, stiffness in your foot, or difficulty walking, we’re here to provide relief. Plantar fasciitis is a common condition caused by inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that runs along the bottom of your foot. It often presents as pain in the heel or arch, particularly with the first steps in the morning or after prolonged periods of rest. 

Plantar fasciitis can result from a variety of factors, including overuse, biomechanical issues, or improper footwear. Excessive standing, walking, running, or wearing unsupportive shoes can increase your risk of developing plantar fasciitis. Additionally, underlying conditions such as flat feet, high arches, or tight calf muscles can contribute to the development of this condition.It normally affects people aged 40+ but we do also see this condition in younger people. 

At Browns Physiotherapy And Wellness, we’re committed to identifying the underlying cause of your plantar fasciitis and addressing any contributing factors. By understanding the root of your discomfort, we can develop a targeted treatment plan to alleviate your symptoms and prevent future recurrences. 

Our approach to treating plantar fasciitis includes a variety of techniques aimed at reducing pain, inflammation, and restoring function to the affected foot. 

First, we provide hands-on therapy to alleviate muscle tension, improve joint mobility, and reduce pain. This may include techniques such as manual therapy, soft tissue massage, or joint mobilization to target specific areas of tightness and discomfort. 

In addition to traditional therapy methods, we also offer shockwave therapy as a treatment option for plantar fasciitis. Shockwave therapy uses high-energy sound waves to stimulate the body’s natural healing response, promoting tissue regeneration and

reducing pain and inflammation. It is recommended by NICE guidelines and we have clients traveling long distances for this treatment. 

Furthermore, we may recommend custom made insoles to provide additional support and cushioning for your feet. These custom-made orthotic devices can help alleviate pressure on the plantar fascia and improve foot mechanics, reducing strain and discomfort.We use the industry leading Phits insoles and use a top of the range scanner to build the perfect orthotic devices for your feet. 

At Browns Physiotherapy And Wellness, we’re dedicated to helping you overcome plantar fasciitis and get back on your feet. Don’t let foot pain hold you back – let’s work together to restore your comfort and mobility.

I came across Browns Physiothrapy on a fb post and decided to give them a phone call after suffering from excruciating sciatica pain for 5 months. I had an intial chat with Jenna who was friendly and very understanding and booked me in to see a physiotherapist straight away. She managed all my appoinments and gave me a follow up call everytime to see how things were going. After my intial visit with one of tha physios Trish, she suggested to have 2x weekly sessions and then move on to 1x weekly session. All my treatment plan was tailored to my needs. Trish reassured me that by the end of the 12 session plan i will be pain free and bravo by the time my 8th session came round i was pain free and doing the things i like to do. I cant thank Triish and the team enough for helping me on my journey to recovery. THey are a credit to the team. I highly recommend Browns Physiotherapy to anyone suffering from sciatica pain.

Brown Physiotherapy in Stoke on Trent delivers excellent results I’m so pleased with the work they have done on my foot, knee and tennis elbow I was in so much pain but thanks to Trish and the shockwave therapy in a matter of weeks I’m nearly completely pain free. I will certainly be continuing after the treatment is complete with the exercises Trish has given me to do …she is a superstar physio for sure.. also Jenna who manages the appointments is so professional and friendly and nothing is too much trouble she is an absolute credit to the business and her customer service skills are outstanding.

I have tried many Physios over the years, but Jennifer has been amazing. She helped to find the cause of my back problem and release a lot of the tension. I wasn’t able to do normal activities without it feeling painful, but this all has changed. I am genuinely from heart so thankful to Jennifer and Donal!

I would like to thank Natalie and Trish for their amazing support in getting me back on my feet . I came in with a muscular strain behind my right knee and similar symptoms behind my left knee. Natalie supported me over the sessions to reduce the inflammation and pain and then took me through a strengthening programme. My sessions with both Natalie and Trish have built my knee strength and confidence. Thank you for an excellent sensitive and professional service

Browns physiotherapy team offered an amazing service was always polite and clear in helping me going back to the gym. I had a discovery session to find out about my injury which was bicep tendinitis and had shockwave therapy on it to treat it which was superb. I also did some strengthening exercise and slowly eased back in the gym being directed on what to focus on in the gym and what not to making sure I would prevent it to flare up again.I’ve now finished my treatment and I’m back in the gym thanks to Donal,Natalie and Jennifer brilliant help .
