Cortisone Injections For Plantar Fasciitis

For many plantar fasciitis sufferers the pain starts as soon as their feet hit the floor in the morning.  The harsh reality is that the first few steps out of bed in the morning is as if they are walking on broken glass.  You would think that if you could walk on broken glass, you’d be up for getting cortisone injections for plantar fasciitis pain?  Not so fast!

I must admit that I am no fan of getting needles or pricked with anything sharp but the pain associated with plantar fasciitis is truly debilitating.  There really comes  a point when the pain is so unbearable that you are willing to try anything if there is a remote chance that this stubborn injury can be healed for good.

So how about getting a cortisone injection for your plantar fasciitis pain?  Well as someone who has tried it, I can tell you first and foremost that is hurts like hell!  The injection is given straight into your front of your heel.  Make sure you are biting down on something like a piece of steel!

So did it work?  I had foot pain relief for about 3 weeks and then it came roaring back again.

For the most part cortisone injections for any type of injury are only effective in the short term.  A recent study by The Lancet, an accredited medical journal, discovered that giving cortisone injections directly into tendons can cause tendons to rupture and may even cause permanent disability.

The problem with treating plantar fasciitis and many other repetitive strain injuries is that these injuries rarely develop overnight and often occur due to performing some sort of repetitive task over an extended period of time.  People who are runners, cashiers, hairdressers, postal workers, factory workers, nurses, walkers, football players are all considered at high risk for developing plantar fasciitis.

When you suffer an injury such as plantar fasciitis, it starts out as a small tear in the fascia of your foot.  Your body’s natural defense to injury is to protect it so it lays down adhesive tissue over the small tear.  The problem is that people continue with their normal activities, which caused the tear in the first place, and now this new tissue gets broken down again and the tear becomes larger.  The viscous cycle of tear – repair – tear forces your body to develop scar tissue.  Now the scar tissue prevents the fascia from moving freely and as a result pulls and it’s this pulling effect that causes the pain and discomfort.

So what’s really your best option for a permanent fix for plantar fasciitis pain?  It’s actually much more simple than you think!

You don’t need to shell out hundreds of dollars of your hard earned cash for expensive doctor and podiatrist visits.  Forget about washing down anti-inflammatory pills day after day that really only mask the pain.  Slam the door in the face of the knife wielding surgeon or cortisone injecting doctor.
