TThe therapist will ask the patient how much walking and standing the patient does, what type of footwear is worn, and details of his/her medical history.Often this is enough to make a diagnosis.
On physical examination, patients may walk with their affected foot in an equine position to avoid placing pressure on the painful heel.Palpation of the medial plantar calcaneal region will elicit a sharp,stabbing pain.Passive ankle/first toe dorsiflexion can cause discomfort in the proximal plantar fascia; it can also assess tightness of the Achilles tendon.Other causes of heel pain should be sought if history and physical examination findings are atypical for plantar fascitis.
