Plantar fasciitis is a very painful and debilitating condition causing pain in the heel. We treat a lot of this at the clinic and it affects a variety of different people. 
About Plantar fasciitis 
Plantar fasciitis involves pain and inflammation of a thick band of tissue, called the plantar fascia, that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes. Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain. 
Plantar fasciitis commonly causes stabbing pain that usually occurs with your very first steps in the morning. Once your foot warms up, the pain of plantar fasciitis normally decreases, but it may return after long periods of standing or after getting up from a seated position. 
Plantar fasciitis is particularly common in runners. In addition, people who are overweight, women who are pregnant and those who wear shoes with inadequate support are at risk of plantar fasciitis. 
We are lucky to have an amazing team of Pilates instructors at Bodyworks. Claire, Caroline and Katrina are the three physios who teach Pilates but we have four additional qualified Pilates instructors in the team who are amazing, Jo, Debby, Alice and Christine. Dog lovers here too! 
An opportunity to meet the Admin staff and see what they get up to in their spare time! 
The clinic would not function without the hard work that these guys put in. We are a brilliant team at Bodyworks and the Admin staff keep the cogwheels turning in the busy clinic machine. 
There seems to be an animal and alcohol theme running through here!
