Mesotherapy for the Pain and Causes of Plantar Fascitis

Plantar Fasciitis is identified by heel pain that is caused by inflammation of the tissue along the bottom of your foot that connects your heel bone to your toes. Mesotherapy treatment can help soften this tissue as well as support the immune system. A person in acute pain from this disorder may benefit from the injections as mesotherapy is successful at treating both tissue disorders and nerve pain.


Symptoms of Plantar Fascitis

Painful areas of plantar fascitis on the foot.
Plantar fasciitis can either develop gradually, but it can come on suddenly and be severe. And although it can affect both feet, it more often occurs in only one foot at a time.

It is characterized by a sharp pain on the inside part of the bottom of your heel which will feel like a knife stabbing the bottom of the foot.  It is also characterized by heel pain feels worse when you take the first few steps in the morning.

Walking or standing on tiptoe can cause a great deal of pain. Heel pain after long periods of standing or after exercise is also symptom.Some sufferers, but not all also experience visible swelling of the heel of the foot.


Causes of Plantar Fascitis 

Under normal circumstances, your plantar fascia supports the arch in your foot. However overuse can cause it to develop tears. Many long distance runners and joggers suffer form it.

Some types of arthritis can cause inflammation in the tendons of the foot which can also lead to plantar fasciitis.  Treating the arthritic part of the limb with mesotherapy may help your patient’s issue.

Being flat-footed, having a high arch or even having an abnormal pattern of walking can put added stress on the plantar fascia.  Wearing shoes with thin soles, that are too lose or lack arch support can also make this condition worse.

Natural aging may also trigger this type of heel pain.  If you are pregnant or obese you are more likely to develop it because you are carrying around extra weight that can also stress the plantar fascia. Advising your patient to lose weight can help in this situation too.


Treatment and Care

One treatment for plantar fasciitis is to outfit the leg with a split that is fitted to your calf and foot while you sleep. This holds the plantar fascia and Achilles tendon in a lengthened position overnight so that they can be stretched more effectively. Orthotic shoes may also be prescribed to correct the condition.

In most cases, a sufferer can overcome the pain of plantar fasciitis without surgery or other invasive treatments.

It is not a good idea to ignore plantar fasciitis as it can produce a chronic condition that hinders your regular activities. You may also develop foot, knee, hip or back problems because of the way plantar fasciitis changes the weight distribution on the feet.  The good news is that mesotherapy can help treat this problem as a support therapy for more allopathic approached for severe cases which can include surgery and help minimize the pain, lack of circulation and damage to the foot tissue that can result.
