When to seek help?
We recommend to seek help from a physiotherapist when home management is not sufficient or symptoms are getting worst over time. There are a few signs to show that your symptoms are getting worse. These could be that your pain is constant, pain is there after prolonged sitting then standing up, pain intensity in increasing and upon waking each morning the first few steps are painful.
If you are not sure if it is a plantar fasciitis we recommend to either consult a general practitioner or one of our physiotherapists at Excel Physiotherapy and Wellness.
How can we help?
Our physiotherapists at Excel Physio could provide you with a tailored and comprehensive corrective foot program to address this condition, provide manual therapy treatments, apply taping for support, and in some cases recommend a night splint. However if your symptoms do not resolve after 12-16 weeks and it is getting worse, we may suggest imaging and a referral to a foot and ankle specialist.
