“It is possible that the people who develop flat feet and plantar fasciitis can have further knee pain, hip pain and lower back pain. This can lead to permanent arthritis and difficulty wearing shoes or walking.”

Howell, Michigan foot doctor and podiatrist Tomasz Biernacki discusses plantar fasciitis, heel pain & Achilles tendonitis. At Advanced Foot & Ankle Specialist of Michigan the focus is on non-surgery treatment vs. the need for surgery in Livingston County. “Patients rarely, if ever, will need surgery after trying some of the non-surgery treatment available. There have been amazing advances in non-surgical treatment,” states Dr. Tom Biernacki.

Dr. Tomasz Biernacki states that, “If plantar fasciitis, heel pain and Achilles tendinitis are caught relatively early, this will prevent permanent arthritis from developing. This can keep the foot from being unable to fit into good supportive shoes in the future.”

Plantar fasciitis, heel pain and Achilles tendinitis are all related to each other. These are structures related in keeping you walking normally while they insert into the bottom in the back of the heel. If one of these structures is tight or injured, it will prevent the other ones from working as well. This can then lead to knee and hip pain if not corrected. Dr. Tom Biernacki says, “Through simple office treatments, low cost orthotics and stretching devices we have had a lot of success rapidly improving foot pain.”

Dr. Biernacki further states, “It is estimated that the people who develop flat feet, plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendinitis can then have further knee pain, hip pain and lower back pain. This can lead to permanent arthritis and difficulty wearing shoes or walking.”
