Foot Pain

Plantar fasciitis commonly causes a stabbing pain in the bottom of the foot near the heel. This pain occurs when the plantar fascia, the tissue/ligament that connects the heel bone to the toes, is injured or stressed which causes inflammation and pain when you stand or walk. Pain usually occurs with your first steps in the morning or after long periods of standing or after rising from sitting. Plantar fasciitis is more common in runners, people who are overweight and those who wear shoes with inadequate support, especially if the arch is not supported. See your podiatrist and talk to our pharmacist about topical anti-inflammatories which don’t cause stomach irritation like oral NSAIDs.
