Ouch! For our latest podcast, Dr. Dimitre talks about the most common cause of heel pain. Plantar Fasciitis, is an easy clinical diagnosis to make but a rather challenging condition to treat. It tends to affect middle-aged persons, athletes, and individuals who stand for prolonged periods of time during the day. Treatment is often conservative, with time and rest being the most effective. Easier said than done! Some patients will benefit from steroid injections.Very few will require surgery.
