If you’re suffering from plantar fasciitis in Mississauga, Milton, or Etobicoke then our physiotherapists can help you overcome this battle. If you wake up in the morning and the first steps you take feel like stabbing in your heel(s) then you may have plantar fasciitis. This is very common for those who are very active on their feet. It is possible to speedily recover from plantar fasciitis through many forms of treatment. We’d first recommend seeing your family doctor and getting their advise on the issue. A doctor may try to steer you down medication, steroid injections, physiotherapy, or shockwave therapy.

If you choose to do physiotherapy for you treatment option, then The Health First Group has 3 physiotherapy clinics: Mississauga Millcreek, Mississauga Heartland, Milton, and Etobicoke. During your physio sessions you will learn about the various exercises which will help alleviate your pain. A physiotherapist will guide you through exercises allowing for you to both stretch and strengthen your plantar fascia, achilles tendon, and lower leg muscles. All of this will contribute to the reduction or elimination of pain. Moreover, for severe cases your physiotherapist may utilize massage contrast baths or ultrasonography to help with long term relief.

On the other hand, if you decide to go for shockwave therapy, this is currently only offered at our Mississauga Millcreek location. Shockwave therapy has been proven to be extremely effective in quickening the recovery process of injured soft tissues, bones, and heel and joint pain. It is a non-invasive, non-toxic, and non-surgical treatment with yields no side effects. Shockwave therapy has a very high success rate of 75% to 95% and thus is preferred by many patients as the treatment of choice. The average therapy session can last up to 20-30 minutes in length. It is important to note that it is a non-surgical treatment with no side effects; and is covered by most extended healthcare plans.
