Heel Pain (Plantar Fasciitis)
Sharp pain between your arch and heel, feels worse when you start walking and better when resting, sometimes includes difficulty raising toes off floor.
The underlying-cause can be a number of different pathologies but treatment is more or less the same with slight bespoke alterations due to individual differences and anatomy that's injured.
One very common condition that affects young and old is an ingrowing toenail. The infection and pain is something that is hard to ignore.
A local anaesthetic will be injected into both sides of the base of the affected toe to make the procedure painless.
