Steroid Injection for Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is the inflammation of the band of tissue on the bottom of the foot called the plantar fascia.  Corticosteroid injections may help patients with plantar fasciitis.  These injections may help relieve pain and inflammation.  Typically, steroid injections consist of a corticosteroid medication and a local anesthetic.  Because of possible side effects, repetitive injections in the same area are usually not recommended.

Why Choose Steroid Injections?

Steroid injections are often done when a patient has inflammation that is causing pain and irritation of the plantar fascia.  For many patients, this may be all they will need.  If the injury or condition is more serious, we have other conservative interventions that may be more helpful.

When doing injections, the providers at Vitality Medical Centers use imaging such as ultrasound or fluoroscopy to watch the procedure and make sure the material is placed in the correct spot.  Because of this, the likelihood of getting positive results is higher than “going in blind”.
