Relief center for plantar fasciitis in Dallas
As a clinic, we at InterX have years of experience providing treatment for plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis is inflammation of the plantar fascia, the bowstring-like tissue that stretches from the heel bone to the base of the toes. It’s also known as plantar fasciosis, plantar fasciopathy, jogger’s heel, and heel spur syndrome. Regardless the name, here are a few facts you should know as you start your plantar fasciitis treatment.
Plantar fasciitis is most commonly caused by repetitive strain injury to the ligament of the sole of the foot. Such injuries include excessive running or walking, inadequate foot gear, and jumping injuries.
Plantar fasciitis makes it difficult to walk barefoot on hard surfaces. The most common symptom is a stabbing pain that usually occurs with first steps in the morning. Additional tenderness is experienced on the bottom of the foot during the day, usually toward the heel, though the entire sole of the foot can be affected.

Plantar fasciitis may be present in people with extremely flat feet. Sometimes, the pain may worsen to the point one has to forego any type of exercise as it aggravates the pain. Often, when a heel spur has developed around the heel bone where the inflamed plantar fascia attaches, pain can be more intense. If the pain is chronic, we recommend an x-ray to determine if there is a bone spur. Custom orthotics can reduce the weight bearing pressure on the affect area of the heel with a spur.
The InterX Therapy Center scans, targets, and uses dynamic application of the InterX 1000 and InterX 5002 to mitigate pain. This may include engaging in motion during treatment or targeting areas of the face and scalp associated with the foot’s trigger points.
