Plantar Fasciitis and Dance Therapy

Plantar Fasciitis and Dance Therapy

Plantar Fasciitis When your plantar fascia becomes inflamed and irritated, it can lead to heel pain. This tissue acts as a shock absorber while supporting your arch and should remain free from irritation.

Plantar fasciitis occurs as a result of repetitive stress and tear or excessive tension due to tight shoes or abnormal walking patterns that force the plantar fascia to stretch beyond what it should. Inflammation often results from this.

Dance Therapy A physical therapist experienced in treating dancers can provide invaluable assistance and get you back dancing quickly. They will evaluate your foot pain, inspect any contributing muscles or tendons, and develop an individualized treatment plan tailored specifically for you.

Plantar fasciitis can best be treated through rest, ice, medications, and physical therapy. Your physical therapist will teach you foot stretching and strengthening exercises that will ease discomfort while improving gait.

Sever’s Disease

Young dancers going through growth spurts may develop tight calf muscles that cause the Achilles tendon to pull on their heel bone (calcaneus). If pain around your heel persists despite attempts at self-treatment with ice or compression therapy, it’s wise to visit a physician as soon as possible.

Most individuals suffering from plantar fasciitis should experience relief within three to 12 months with conservative treatments such as rest, ice packs and medications; if symptoms continue beyond this point however, surgery may be required to completely remove the plantar fascia.
