Plantar Fasciitis

A Common Cause of Heel Pain

Plantar Fasciitis is a common source of heel pain. The plantar fascia is tissue connecting the base of the foot to the back of the heel. When irritated, it may cause swelling resulting in pain throughout the foot and heel. Dr. Baca, top podiatrist in Plano, has the expertise to properly treat heel pain caused by plantar fasciitis.
