Plantar Fasciitis - The truth is revealed.

  1. 1. Guide to:
  2. 2. 6 months to 1 year or longer*.*Foot & Ankle International, Vol 29, No 3, 358 – 366, 2008
  3. 3. If you are sitting, driving your caror lying on the couch- no pain.
  4. 4. The over-whelming majority of people with innerheel pain are 35 – 50 years old.
  5. 5. The best way to end the painis to figure out the source of the pain.
  6. 6. Very strong tendon-like structure onthe bottom of your foot.Spans from heel bone to the base ofthe toes.Function is to provide support to theinner arch of the foot and assists inthe walking cycle.
  7. 7. consists of thousands of verystrong fibers that supportsthe bones of the inner archand it puts a spring in yourstep.
  8. 8. (fas-she-eye-tis)
  9. 9. *J Am Pod Med Assoc, Vol 93, No 3, 234 – 237, 2003Clin Orthop, 266, 186, 1991Clin Orthop, 332, 170, 1996Am J Sports Med, 11, 215, 1983
  10. 10. This leads to over-stretching of the innerband of the plantar fascia.J Foot Ankle Surg, Vol 50, 682 – 686, 2011Foot & Ankle International, Vol 29, No 3, 358 – 366, 2008Clin Sports Med, Vol 7, 119 – 126, 1988

  16. 16.
  17. 17.
  18. 18. The weakest area of the plantarfascia is just a millimeter or twobefore it inserts in the heel bone.This is the weakest area of the fasciaand where the over-use injury occurs.
  19. 19.
  20. 20.
  21. 21. Splints used at night try to preventthe plantar fascia from contracting– but the real damage comes fromthe over-stretching of the plantarfascia.These devices do not prevent theover-stretching of the plantarfascia while standing, walking orrunning.
  22. 22. The plantar fascia is being over-stretched with every step taken.Ice does not address the over-stretching of the inner band of theplantar fascia.
  23. 23. Only address the symptoms, don’t prevent the anklebone displacement.Can lead to other side-effects.Should only be considered in additional to othertreatments.
  24. 24. Temporary measure.Can cause more harm than good.The damaged/weakened plantar fascia is temporarily numb.The patient does too much walking, since they are pain free,which leads to more trauma and overstretching of theplantar fascia.Injections could actually lead to complete rupture of theplantar fascia.
  25. 25. Decreases the strain on the plantar fasciaCannot be left on the foot permanentlyAdhesive allergyCan’t get it wet, has to be professionally appliedTemporary measureMore effective for arch pain than heel pain.
  26. 26. When all else fails, the inner band of the plantar fascia iscut.A major support structure of the foot is now eliminated.This will lead to increased strain to the posterior tibialtendon and eventually that structure will becomesymptomatic.
  27. 27. Instantly, stabilizes the ankle bone and has beenscientifically proven* to decrease the strain to the innerband of the plantar fascia.Offers a permanent but completely reversible.Will not “wear-out”Not dependent on external factors- shoes, braces, etc.*J Foot Ankle Surg, Vol 50, 682 – 686, 2011
  28. 28. is the only extra-osseous talotarsal stabilization devicethat works with the normal biomechanics unlike otherdevices that work against the normal function and oftenleading to failure of the device.+

  31. 31.
  32. 32. The goal is to eliminate the cause, not to mask thesymptoms.External measures have significant limitations.The cause is internal and therefore an internal solutionis required.HyProCure just makes sense.
