DR TAUB'S FORTE for Heel Spur/ Plantar Fasciitis

November 6, 2013

FUN FOOT FACT: WOMEN EXPERINECE FOOT PROBLEMS FOUR TIMES MORE OFTEN THAN MEN.
Strapping Tecniques for Heel Spur/ Plantar Fasciitis is a forte of Dr. Taub's and many patients come in requesting the various techniques Dr. Taub performs. One of them being the LOW DYE strapping which is applied predominantly to the bottom of the foot. The advantage of this is that the patient can shower and get the strapping wet and blow dry it, after showering, which actually retightens the strapping. For more severe plantar fasciitis, we use a strapping that incorporates both the foot and ankle. The purpose of the foot and ankle strapping is to reduce the upward flexing of the foot on the ankle to prevent continous stretching and inflammation of the plantar fascia. It is almost like putting your foot in a splint as you would if you sprained your arm. The strapping of the foot and ankle can be used as a stand alone treatment or in conjunction with other treatments.
