Plantar Fasciitis X Ray

With the explosion of the internet, many websites have set out to replace medical professionals when it comes to diagnosing injuries and disease.  Some websites actually have Medical doctors who are more than happy to answer your questions and give advice.  But it’s always best practice to visit your own GP if you are suffering from any sort of pain or discomfort.  And if possible, get an x ray.

This is no different when it comes to a plantar fasciitis diagnosis which will put any to rest any concerns or doubts you have of whether your foot pain really is a plantar fasciitis injury or something more serious like a broken bone.

Requesting a plantar fasciitis x ray is critical if you ever want to fully recover from plantar fasciitis simply because it allows you to take the “first step” to set out on a proper path to get your foot pain under control once and for all.

Many people who suffer from plantar fasciitis continue suffering from this nagging injury much longer than they should, and I’m sorry to say but a lot of the blame can be pointed at the people who are supposed to help – the medical community.  Here’s why…

Some medical professionals are still using the term heel spurs synonymously to describe plantar fasciitis.  This sends a confusing message to those who are suffering from plantar fasciitis, when all it is they are seeking when their foot pain first strikes is a proper diagnosis.

The truth be told about heel spurs is that they are simply a side effect of plantar fasciitis.  Other important facts about heel spurs is that they are “spike-like” projections of new bone that grows out from your heel that rarely cause pain or discomfort.  Heel spurs can even remain at the back of your heel bone even after your plantar fasciitis has been cured and resolved.  You will only develop these spiky projections after you’ve developed plantar fasciitis.  Heel spurs are rarely felt by rubbing your fingers at the back of your heel rather they can only be identified through an x ray.

To make matters worse when trying to get a proper plantar fasciitis diagnosis is that doctors often contradict each other when it comes to your foot arch.  It’s not uncommon for one doctor to tell you that you have “flat feet” and this is the cause of your plantar fasciitis pain.  Then you could literally walk down the street to another doctor and they will tell you that you have “high arches” and that this is why you have plantar fasciitis.  To be brutally honest, both types of foot shapes are equally at risk of developing plantar fasciitis foot pain.

The real secret behind eliminating plantar fasciitis is taking proactive measures to treat it as soon as you are diagnosed.  Plantar fasciitis walking pain is real and this when you really need to bear down and get treatment.  The longer you take to seek treatment to the longer your recovery may take.  Not to mention that as you ignore the pain and put off getting treatment, you may actually be making your injury worse, which in turn will increase your pain and symptoms.

Many people who have had a recent plantar fasciitis xray, diagnosis or may have been suffering from this terrible, stubborn foot injury for some time, don’t even realize that plantar fasciitis home treatment exists.  You don’t have to shell out hundreds of dollars for doctors, x-rays, podiatrists, custom orthotic shoes or inserts to get immediate foot pain relief.

In fact, you don’t even have to get up from the chair you are sitting on right now to get foot pain relief.  All it takes are 5 simple, easy-to-follow steps that you can do at home without any special exercise equipment or medical gadgets.
