How Is Plantar Fasciitis Diagnosed?

Identifying plantar fasciitis typically involves a comprehensive evaluation, often beginning with a physical examination and, if needed, followed by imaging tests.

During the physical examination, a healthcare professional will focus on the area of pain and assess various aspects including reflexes, muscle tone, and sensory responses to touch and sight. Your coordination and balance will also be evaluated to gain a thorough understanding of the condition’s impact on your overall foot health.

Though not routinely required, X-rays or MRIs can be helpful to exclude other foot conditions, such as a pinched or irritated nerve.

Relying on self-diagnosis can lead to inadequate or incorrect treatment. A professional evaluation ensures an accurate assessment, paving the way for an effective and tailored treatment approach.
