Plantar Fasciitis treatment in Glasgow & Ayrshire


Hello, it’s Michael Brown from Cram Osteopaths in Glasgow, and today I wanted to talk to you about plantar fasciitis. If plantar fasciitis, or heel pain, has been plaguing you over the last year and you’ve missed out on the things that you enjoy, long dog walks, hillwalking, playing with your children, or grandchildren, golf, then it’s important that you’re listening to this information. That there’s a way out of this, but it needs to start now. And the reason for that, if you want to enjoy all the outdoor activities when level four or tier four is lifted, then the process needs to begin soon.

It’s when the good weather comes back in April and May, if you’ve put in the hard work with the plantar fasciitis programme over that period of time, then you’ll be able to enjoy all these things again. Now, the reason for that is that it’s only so fast that your body can heal. And there’s only so much that we can do. The long-term biological effects of what we do in the practise with Shockwave Therapy are long lasting and will last you for many years to come.

However, it’s not a quick fix. So if we start now, we get you through the programme, that when the good weather comes back, when we’re allowed to do all the things that we want to do again, which it will come, hopefully, not too far away, that you will be there, ready to enjoy them. So I would like you to download our free information pack. You’ll be able to find that on the link on this post. Download it, read the information around the Shockwave Therapy and the programme that we offer at the practise. And please get in contact with us and we look forward to helping you soon and to make 2021 a pain-free year for you. Learn more here

Hello, it’s Michael Brown from Cram Osteopaths in Glasgow and today I want to talk to you about plantar fasciitis. So if you’re frustrated with your heel pain or your arch or your foot pain and you don’t know what to do, if you’ve tried other treatment options including orthotics, massage, laser therapy, injections and these treatment options haven’t worked for you, if you can’t walk long distances or even short distances without agonising heel pain that’s affecting your life, exercising, walking your dog, playing with your children or grandchildren, then Cram Osteopaths may have the solution for you. So here at the practise, we have a comprehensive plantar fasciitis programme which uses shockwave therapy. So we use focused shockwaves and radial shockwaves to help with the healing of the plantar fascia and get you back onto the road to recovery.

What’s causing your heel pain in the morning?


Plantar fasciitis may be the cause of your heel pain, patients present with following symptoms. The majority of patients attend our Glasgow plantar fasciitis clinic with heel pain, they feel like something is stuck, or being stuck into the base of the heel when they put pressure on it when walking. Also, a number of patients present with pain around the arch of the foot, and then less commonly, around the toes. All of these areas can be categorised as plantar fasciitis symptoms.

Now, one of the reasons for your increase in symptoms at the moment, can be down to your footwear… or lack of it. Many more people are now working from home. They walk from one room to another on hard surfaces, with no footwear or inadequate footwear, possibly all that shuffling around in slippers could be leading to some of the symptoms of plantar fasciitis.

So, one of our top tips for plantar fasciitis, is adequate footwear, wearing supportive footwear or trainers , when you are outside walking and when you are inside walking always make sure you are wearing appropriate footwear.

Thank you for watching, and if you’d like some more information about our plantar fasciitis programme, please get in touch with the practice¬†here
