Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common foot-related diagnoses in Canada, causing heel pain in as many as 7% of people. While the initial discomfort associated with plantar fasciitis may not seem severe enough to warrant a visit to a professional. But plantar fasciitis which goes untreated can lead to severe pain that affects daily life and even simple activities.

As a result, it’s important to understand what plantar fasciitis is, how to know if you’re at risk, and when to see a chiropodist about your symptoms.

Evergreen Rehab & Wellness, we get how much plantar fasciitis pain can impact your life. That’s why we’re here with a range of treatment options and the expertise to help. We have extensive experience in helping patients manage and find relief from plantar fasciitis.

What is Plantar Fasciitis?

Imagine a band running along the bottom of your foot, from your heel all the way to the base of your toes. That’s your plantar fascia. It’s not just any band, though; it’s a tough ligament that absorbs the shocks and bumps we put our feet through every day, whether we’re walking, running, or just standing.

Why Does Plantar Fasciitis Happen?

Since the plantar fascia is more rigid than muscle, it’s not really built to stretch. So, when it’s under constant pressure or gets stretched too far, it can start to get little tears and injuries. This leads to inflammation and, you guessed it, pain. It’s an overuse injury, seen a lot in people who are on their feet a bunch, long-distance runners, folks carrying extra weight, those with either really high arches or flat feet, and anyone not wearing shoes that give enough support.

What Does Plantar Fasciitis Feel Like?

If you’ve got plantar fasciitis, you’ll likely feel pain at the heel’s bottom, though it can spread to your foot’s arch. The pain is usually:

  • Worst in the morning right when you get out of bed
  • Sharp or shooting, making you feel like there’s a stab in the bottom of your foot
  • More intense when you stand up after sitting for a while
  • It might ease up after you’ve walked around a bit, but then it sneaks back if you’re on your feet for too long.

Pretty good RMT (registered massage therapy) experience. They do direct billing to 1 provider. Location can be a bit hard to find at first. Can park in the underground parking lot. When you walk back up the parking lot ramp, Evergreen is on the right past the 504 sign.

Suji Hong, the acupuncturist, is the best I’ve ever known. I had foot injuries that lasted for a couple of months, but after receiving three sessions of needle treatments from her, the pain is gone! She is very professional and caring, and she pinpoints the exact areas where I have issues. If you are looking for a trustworthy acupuncturist in town, I would highly recommend her :)

Sarah Park is the best kinesiologist I have ever experienced. Always impressed by her superlative job of providing best solutions and delivering the immaculate sessions. It's easy to feel that she is very knowledgeable, passionate and caring. Having an amazing experience with Sarah has led me to switch from other clinic that I have been taking physio to take physio sessions at Evergreen.

My mom and I saw Dr. Teddy Kim for back and neck pain. His assessment and treatment was very thorough and we felt much better. He even taught us exercises to do at home. Highly recommended
