How Do I Know If I Have Plantar Fasciitis?

Posted by Nicole on 7/29/2010 to Plantar Fasciitis Information

Plantar Fasciitis is a diagnosis most often given to you by your podiatrist if you have arch foot pain related to:

  • Obesity or Weight Gain
  • Lack of Arch Support
  • Frequent Walking/Running
  • Waking incorrectly or abnormal pronation
  • High Arches
  • Flat Feet
  • Tight Calf or Archilles Tendon muscles
  • Strenuous Activity
  • Biological Factors (age, weight, disorders, diseases, etc)
  • Foot related injuries
Check out our Pain Identifier to find out more about the foot pain you are experiencing as well as read more about Plantar Fasciitis.

Isolating the exact cause of your pain can be difficult, but you can at least zero in on where your foot hurts. A variety of things could be contributing to your foot pain that may have nothing to do with Plantar Fasciitis. You can rule out Plantar Fasciitis if you have no arch pain, but you have pain in your heels or toes. These things can be treated by using insoles. However, if the pain is in your arch and you know that your arches are low or high, then chances are, you could be suffering from Plantar Fasciitis.

Also, you should speak with a doctor or podiatrist about your foot pain concerns before deciding that you have Plantar Fasciitis or some other foot related problems. Disorders such as Plantar Fasciitis can become chronic and serious if not treated immediately and appropriately. It is not uncommon for a pain sufferer to misdiagnose themselves and start to treat a problem they don't even have. If the pain is enough for you to be searching for answers on the internet, then it is probably serious enough for you to see a doctor. Don't let foot pain plague your everyday life.
