Dr. Stephen Barrett Reminds Runners to Beware of Recurring Heel Pain During Summer Runs


Phoenix, AZ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 08/26/2014 --One of the best parts of Arizona is being able to run outside 12 months out of the year. While it may be uncomfortable to run when it’s over 100 degrees outside, there’s another side of discomfort while running that everyone needs to be aware of.

For those experiencing heel pain when running consistently for two or more weeks, it’s time to see a doctor. Plantar fasciitis and other heel pain issues can continue to get worse to the point of degeneration of tissue and ligaments.

For those experiencing morning heel pain or pain when running, consult a physician to get a proper diagnosis and avoid further injury.

For more information on plantar fasciitis, visit or call 480-478-0780.
