Treatment and Prevention of Plantar Fasciitis Educational Q&A
Wednesday, March 21 at 6 – 7 p.m.
The YMCA|Halifax Health Healthy Living Center at The Ormond Beach Family YMCA, 500 Sterthaus Drive, Ormond Beach
Hosted by Halifax Health, this educational event will provide attendees with more information about plantar fasciitis, the common cause of heel pain.
Plantar fasciitis is a chronic local inflammation of the “bowstring-like” ligament stretching underneath the sole, also referred to as the plantar fascia, that attaches at the heel. It is most commonly caused by repetitive strain injury to the ligament of the sole of the foot. Such strain injury can be from excessive running or walking, inadequate foot gear, and jumping injury from landing. Plantar fasciitis can also be caused by certain diseases, including reactive arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis.
Featured speakers will include podiatrist Dr. Hillaree Milliron of Atlantic Foot and Ankle Associates and physical therapist Dr. Ashley Perry with Halifax Health|Brooks Rehabilitation.
