Fascitis physical therapy plants neighborhood salamanca madrid Sure center that at some time along your life you have listened to Fascitis’s term to plant. Well because some friend or relative has suffered it, or because you have had to suffer it in your meats.
The fascia or aponeurosis planting is a thick band of connective fabric that one finds in the sole, and passes from the previous part of the bone Calcáneo (the bone of the heel), up to the part of the fingers.
It has an inelastic consistency but certain behavior viscoelástico. It is formed principally by fibers of collagenous type I arranged longitudinally and obliquely, with some superficial fibers that spread transversely in the portions proximal and distal. We can find collagenous type the IIIrd in the connective lax fabric where the big fibrous faeces change direction. Also it contains certain quantity of elastic fibers that change in thickness, and they are arranged in longitudinal fibers of groups of interlaced fibers capable of changing his orientation by virtue of a progressive increase of the load, producing a gradual increase of the inflexibility.
His fibers are continued anatomical by those of Achilles’ paratendón across a thin band corresponding to the periosteum of the calcáneo, existing relation between the thicknesses of Achilles’ tendon and that of the fascia.
It is a structure of support, which absorbs the impacts and supports the arch of the foot.
Was observed that the total fasciotomía (surgery) was producing a collapse of the longitudinal medial arch that he was leading to a flatfoot, which led to the conclusion of which the principal function of the fascia is to support the integrity of the longitudinal arch and to provide stability to the foot.
Both the tendons and the fascia to plant are scantily vascularizados, for what his regeneration in case of traumatism or injury turns out to be very slow on not having received the nutrients and the sufficient oxygen.
What is the fascitis?
The fascitis to plant is a very common reason of pain in the foot, both in sportsmen and in sedentary persons. The pain appears in the sole, near the heel, being a pain that deteriorates on having walked or to do exercise. It is a question of a frequent injury in sportsmen (basketball, running, football, handball, …).

The term of “fascitis”, refiriéndose to an inflammatory process, is not correct completely. The correct nomenclature would be Fasciosis, since histological changes have been observed in the structure of the fascia, but not an inflammation as such.
Shortening of the tendon of Achilles and / or of the later chain.
Overweight excessive Pronación dorsal limited Flexion of the ankle Weakness in the musculature of the foot (and of the region of the sole) Badly physical conditioning too hard Surface not suitable Stretchings (or absence of stretching) inadequate Footwear E.P.T.E THE DEFINITIVE SOLUTION TO THE FASCIOSIS:
Tendinitis fascitis madrid neighborhood salamanca center agreed américa The EPTE consists of the application of a galvanic (constant) current of form percutánea stimulating directly the fabric affected across a needle.
In this application there takes place a chemical reaction that ‘breaks’ the fabric fibrótico degraded and believe an inflammatory response adapted for his later regeneration.
A today, the electrolysis percutánea therapeutic is the most effective technology to recover chronic injuries in the tendon and fascia to plant, so much in top athletes as any person who suffers from this type of injuries
The average of meetings to solve the injury are 5 or 6. One is in the habit of ruling a weekly session of treatment with Electrolysis, accompanied of eccentric exercises.
In Purafisioterapia we go more than one year treating this type of injuries with EPTE, with excellent results.
