Summer Foot Pain/Plantarfasciitis

Summer Foot Pain/Plantarfasciitis

Comments Off on Summer Foot Pain/Plantarfasciitis

The start of summer means flip flops and sun tans. At Rocky Mountain Physical Therapy we have an increase in patient complaints of foot pain in the summer which is usually due to improper support in sandals. With the lack of arch support your arch can collapse causing micro-tearing in your plantarfascia which is a tough tissue at the bottom of the foot. Common complaints of plantarfasciitis are pain at the base of the heel and pain with the first few steps out of bed or after rest. To avoid foot pain this summer grab a more sturdy sandal or wear your tennis shoes and hiking shoes with good arch support for those longer treks. We find great relief with patients that have foot pain when they add an insole like Super Feet found right here at Rocky Mountain Physical Therapy. More severe cases require soft tissue release, taping and or corrective exercises for muscle imbalances. Call for a free consult or set up your appointment today!


I am very happy for a chance to review RMPT. After a bone breaking fall , on hard ground, they were able to rid me of the pain and make it possible for me to walk again. As i have no car, Stacey worked carefully to coordinate my rides and available appointments and Kaleb’s unusual expertise, patience, and encouragement, gave me a new start in only 3 months. What a joy to work with such professionals!

Rocky Mountain PT has turned out to be an excellent choice in doing my therapy. From the ease of scheduling through the office to the way they make you feel throughout the entire process is great. I had Derrick for the majority of my appointments and he was able to help alleviate so many of the post surgery issues I was having. He was always open ears to how I was feeling and I could tell he has a passion for really trying to "help". From one small business to another its nice to see a company that truly cares. Thank You Derrick!
