Pain in the bottom of your heel typically referred to as Plantar fasciitis. The plantar fascia is a ligament that connects your heel to the front of your foot and helps supports yourarch as you walk and thereby acts as shock absorbers. Plantar fasciitis is a very common foot condition that occurs when this ligament experience more stress from activities in your daily life such as running, jumping or even walking on a hard surface or uneven ground. Too much pressure on your feet can damage or tear the ligament, causing. the plantar fascia to become inflamed. This inflammation causes thickness and tearing and the formation of scar tissue to build up on the bottom of the heel, and causes chronic plantar fasciitis. Dr. Alan Bloch now performs the Tenex Procedure, a minimally invasive, innovative, gentle percutaneous procedure to help remove this inflamed tissue of the plantar fascia, restoring natural soft tissue function. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and has excellent results with limited downtime and early return to activities.
