The plantar fascia refers to the tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot, all the way from the base of the toes to the heel. It’s what gives your foot its arch and supplies the flexibility it needs to bend. When it becomes inflamed, particularly after the foot has undergone repeated stress, the tissue can form very small tears up and down your foot. If you’re interested in how to heal a frequently used area like this, we’ll tell you what radiofrequency can do to help.
Radiofrequency for Plantar Fasciitis
If you’re experiencing symptoms of plantar fasciitis in Austin, TX, which include pain both on the bottom of the foot and in the heel, a podiatrist has a few options about what to do next. After evaluating both your medical history and symptoms, they might recommend radiofrequency as a course of treatment.
With this approach, a special wand will administer energy to the area. The fluctuating rate of current is designed to damage your tissues in order to help stimulate your body’s natural healing process. While it may seem counterintuitive to bring further distress to the area, the treatment is precise enough to work for many people. By targeting the right areas, you may find that you don’t need any further attention from a podiatrist to get back on your feet again.
