Edison, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/30/2017 -- Those who are searching for a pain treatment center in Union, NJ that offers innovative minimally invasive procedures should look no further than the Freeman Spine and Pain Institute. In fact, the medical practice is pleased to announce that treatments are available for plantar fasciitis.
One of the most common causes of foot and heel pain is plantar fasciitis. It occurs when the plantar fascia—a thick band of tissue found in the bottom of the foot—becomes inflamed. Individuals typically experience stabbing, burning, or aching pains in the sole of the foot or the heel area, and the pain can last for a few days or even up to a few years.
Plantar fasciitis is most prevalent in athletes, although those who are obese, wear ill-fitting footwear, stand or lift heavy objects for prolonged periods of time can also suffer from the condition. Common treatments for plantar fasciitis can include giving the feet rest to reduce stress and using ice packs. While some may find relief through these methods, others may need other forms of treatment that can include injections or physical therapy.
Patients who believe they have plantar fasciitis are encouraged to make an appointment with one of the pain management specialists at the practice's Union, NJ location, or any of the other locations closest to them. During the initial consultation, the physician will go over the patient's medical history and perform a physical. The physician may also suggest further testing to determine the exact cause of the pain, and what treatment option or procedure will offer adequate relief.
