Marcus Camby of the New York Knicks is suffering from plantar fasciitis


In an article on on December 05, 2013 by Frank Isola, it was revealed that former Raptor, Marcus Camby, was suffering from plantar fasciitis of the left foot.  He was hoping that he would only be off for “a couple of days”.  He said, “(I am receiving) treatment and then we’ll see how I am in a couple of days”.

It sounds like Camby’s problems are not over yet, because, according to on April 07, 2013, Camby was still experiencing plantar fasciitis pain with the left foot and was doubtful to play on Sunday afternoon April 7, in Oklahoma City.

Plantar fasciitis is a painful condition affecting the plantar fascia which is a broad ligament at the sole of the foot.  It often causes extreme heel pain, particularly with the first few steps in the morning and with the first few steps following rest.  If not treated properly it can become a chronic condition, leaving the sufferer to wonder when his or her heel pain will get better.

In his Toronto podiatry clinic, Toronto podiatrist Sheldon Nadal D.P.M. uses Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy for Heel Spur Pain, Arch Pain, Plantar Fasciitis, and Achilles Tendonitis .  Approximately 80% of patients will experience anywhere from 50-100% improvement following one of these treatments.  We also use made to measure Custom Foot Orthotics to improve the mechanics of the foot to help prevent recurrence.

If you, or someone you care about suffer from heel pain due to plantar fasciitis, please call out Toronto podiatry Office at 416-486-9917 to find out how you can get relief.
