La Salle´s Tyreek Duren. (David Maialetti/Staff Photographer)College athlete Tyreek Duren continues to play for La Salle despite suffering from plantar fasciitis. Although Duren has been contending with what normally is an adverse, painful condition, according to Duren the pain is generally minimal.

 "The first couple of games, I was OK," Duren said. "I didn't know when it was going to hurt. . . . Say for the first 10 minutes, I was fine. Then I didn't know. Then I'd come down on it awkwardly."

However, Duren did acknowledge that his condition could potentially slow him down. "One play I could go fast, then I'd play for it the next couple of possessions. Going for a layup, I'd always come down hard. The next couple of plays on defense, I'd go, 'I've got to take it easy.' Fortunately, Explorers coach John Giannini believes that Duren’s condition is continuing to improve.  

If you are experiencing pain from plantar fasciitis, be sure to consult with podiatrist Dr. Michael Stein of Foot Doctor of the East Bay. Dr. Stein will examine your heel and treat the pain and symptoms of all of your foot and ankle problems.

The Condition Known as Plantar Fasciitis

An inflammation of the connective tissues on the bottom of the foot, Plantar Fasciitis can cause a great deal of pain in the arch and heel of the foot.

Treatments That Can Help Plantar Fasciitis

· Shockwave Therapy- works by sending sound waves to the sites where pain is being experienced. Commonly used for chronic cases of plantar fasciitis, shockwave therapy usually requires multiple sessions
· Ultrasound-guided technique with steroid injections into the plantar fascia. This is from a relatively smaller new study but shown to be effective in most cases treated
· Conservative Measures- ice packs, stretching exercises, orthotic devices, physical therapy and/or anti-inflammatory medication

What Can Cause Plantar Fasciitis?

· Excessive running
· Lack of adequate footwear
· Bad foot support
· Overpronation
· Obesity
