Do you have plantar fasciitis in Laguna Hills CA? When the band that connects your calcaneus (heel bone) to the toes, the plantar fascia, becomes inflamed it can cause a lot of pain. Plantar fasciitis is most prevalent in runners, obese/overweight individuals, pregnant women, as well as people that wear improper shoes with little to no support. Other likely causes and/or contributing factors may be too much standing, vitamin c deficiency, and a sudden change to increased activity.

Understanding Plantar Fasciitis in Laguna Hills CA

Likelihood of developing this condition increases between the ages of 40 to 70. Someone suffering from plantar fasciitis may experience stabbing pain in the heel and it generally is worse first thing in the morning with the first few steps of the day. The pain often reduces with continued walking, and it is not common to experience planar fasciitis in both feet simultaneously. If left untreated, a heel spur may occur.

In order to make a proper diagnosis of plantar fasciitis, an exam must be performed. During the exam, your foot will be tested by performing reflexes, testing the muscle strength and tone, as well as coordination and balance. A structural evaluation will also be performed to check the knees, hips and pelvis. If there is poor weight distribution or improper gait (walking pattern) then that may have caused the plantar fasciitis. To rule out any other possible causes, such as a heel spur, fracture, or subluxation, an x-ray may be taken.

The Treatment of Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis can be treated with soft tissue work. The goal is to restore full range of motion in the different joints of the ankle and foot while minimizing stress to the plantar fascia. It is also common to work on the muscles of the calf to improve flexibility.

An inflammation of a thick band of tissue that connects the heel bone to the toes. The inflamed tissue runs across the bottom of the foot. Symptoms include: stabbing pain near the heel. The pain might be worse in the morning.


The plantar fascia is designed to absorb the high stresses and strains we place on our feet during walking, running, and doing other activities like playing sports. But, sometimes, too much pressure damages or tears the tissues. The body's natural response to injury is inflammation, which results in the heel pain and stiffness of plantar fasciitis.

Risk Factors

plantar fasciitis develops without a specific reason but there are many factors that can make you more prone to the condition such as new or increased activity, repetitive high impact activity (running/dancing/sports), prolonged standing on hard surfaces, flat feet or high arche, obesity and age.

Treatment Options:

  • FDA-Cleared Acoustic Wave Therapy: Extracorporeal Shockwave that involves delivery of shock waves to injured soft tissue to reduce pain, breakdown tissue calcification, promoting stem cell regeneration and promote healing. Along with helping avoid surgery as well as repeated steroid injections, which can increase breakdown of the tissue in long term.
  • MLS Laser Therapy: A pain-free procedure that penetrates the tissue activating mitochondrial activity and greatly stimulating blood flow to the targeted area. This has the effect of stimulating healing, creating an analgesic effect (reducing pain) and decreasing inflammation and overall accelerating the recovery process.
  • Neuromuscular Stimulator: Featuring 4 distinct wave forms to reduce inflammation, improve blood flow and help to repair injured areas.
  • Supplementation: High dose quality supplementation to help the healing and repairing cartilage and ligaments and joint support.
