Plantar Fasciitis

Select an injury location on the golf player

What is Plantar Fasciitis?

Plantar Fasciitis is inflammation of the Plantar fascia (a fibrous sheath under the sole of the foot), at its attachment to the heel bone. It is a common cause of heel pain in golfers that typically comes on when walking round the golf course. Plantar Fasciitis is particularly prevalent in those golfers with poor foot wear. Pain is common on the underside of the heel and the sole of the foot. A common sign of Plantar Fasciitis is heel pain upon waking in the morning when taking the first steps of the day.

What can you do to prevent Plantar Fasciitis?

Inappropriate footwear plays a major role in the development of Plantar Fasciitis. Golf shoes that have a lack of support for the sole of the foot are the biggest culprits, causing foot pain when walking around the course. A lack of support for the arch of the foot can cause excessive pronation (uncontrolled lowering of the arch) that can predispose golfers to Plantar Fasciitis.

Research has shown that Orthotic Insoles that support the arch on the inner side of the foot can be helpful for limiting excessive pronation and preventing the pain of Plantar Fasciitis and heel pain.

What should you do if you suffer Plantar Fasciitis?

Apply Ice Packs (never apply ice directly to the skin) to the heel and sole of the foot for pain relief. Anti-inflammatory drugs prescribed by a doctor can provide relief for painful Plantar Fasciitis and wearing a Heel Support can take the strain off the painful heel when walking and playing golf.

Once the pain of Plantar Fasciitis begins to settle then stretching the Plantar Fascia helps to speed up healing in over 80% of cases. A Plantar Fasciitis Night Splint applies a sustained stretch to the Plantar Fascia during sleep, which helps to stretch and align the tissues and relieve foot pain.
