Plantar Fasciitis in Professional Sports

Plantar Fasciitis in Professional Sports

How is it that professional athletes can get back on their feet so fast, running bases, get back to pounding the basketball court or the football field while the rest of us are limping to the couch in front of the TV to watch and wonder?

Plantar fasciitis is common to all sports, just as common in baseball and football as in basketball, says Dr. Ross. “I work with the professional tennis organization in Houston with clay court, and plantar fasciitis is a common injury. They’re always running forward to the net and side to side, quick, explosive propulsion, going from stationary to accelerated positions.

Recover depends, says Dr. Ross, on how aggressive the treatment is. Athletes and their teams push the state of the art to the limit, like the teams and athletes in basketball.

Oh how even the most mighty are brought low by plantar fasciitis! And oh how current knowledge of treatment can raise them back up again. Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning had to leave the field on November 8, 2015, due to a plantar fasciita tear. Manning had been suffering from plantar fasciitis prior to the tear. When one has plantar fasciitis, stressing the plantar fascia is more likely to produce a tear. After missing a couple of games, however, he was not only back on the field but WON THE FRIGGING SUPER BOWL! Is that an inspiring message for us all, or what! Like the giants of sports, all of us plantar fasciitis suffers have the potential to reclaim our lives.
