If you have unbearable pain in your foot, ankle, or heel, it might be a sign that you are suffering from plantar fasciitis.


It is a flat band of tissues (ligaments) that create a connection between your toes and heel bone. The tissue is responsible for supporting the foot arch. With daily activities and walking, the plantar fascia gets strained, making it weak, inflamed, and irritated. It makes you suffer from pain, sensations, and pinning as your heel starts hurting even with a slight movement.

Plantar Fasciitis is rare among middle-aged people. Sometimes youngsters too go through the problem if they are extremely active and are constantly on their toes. Soldiers, doctors, athletes, and field workers are some of the people who might experience the issue.

At Empire Foot and Ankle Center, we offer treatment for plantar fasciitis heel pain in Riverside, where we ensure that you get back on your feet in no time at all.


Some people have flat feet, but they still do not face any problem, pain, or issue as their feet are shaped naturally. However, most people face symptoms that are problematic, affecting their mobility and everyday activities. Some of the symptoms that warn you of the issue are:

  • Your feet get tired easily, and often you have painful or achy feet. The pain usually hurts the areas of the arches, feet fingers, and heels. In addition, it also causes you to have a balance problem while you stand, walk or run.
  • You can observe inflammation at the inside bottoms of your feet
  • Postures like standing over your toes, brisk walk, running, or ankle movement are challenging for you


Our plantar fasciitis treatment surgery in Riverside comprises a diagnosis phase where we examine your feet and ankle. We also go through your health history in case you have had any previous conditions. After it is confirmed that you have plantar fasciitis, we recommend a treatment that syncs with your daily physical activities.

You can find footwear and supportive equipment with us that helps in minimizing pain. Our aim is to reduce your reliance on pain killers and muscle relaxants through exercises and massages. We strive to ensure that we do not put our patients for plantar fasciitis treatment surgery unless it becomes mandatory.
