Plantar Fasciitis | Ronkonkoma
Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common podiatric conditions relating to the foot. It is when the thick tissue on the bottom of the foot (the plantar fascia) becomes inflamed and irritated, making it difficult to walk. This is most often the result of repeated episodes of minor but recurring injury, such as with frequent running or long periods of standing. The pain can be located in the heel area of the foot or in the arch. It is often worse in the morning due to stiffness of the tissue, and also becomes worse after long periods of walking. The pain often decreases with rest.
Dr. Taormino will examine your foot for swelling, redness and tenderness of the area. X-rays may be taken.
Initial treatment usually involves heel stretching exercises, night splints or shoe inserts. Anti-inflammatory medications may also be given. Treatment can span several months to two years before symptoms improve. Most patients will see an improvement within one year. Further treatment may include steroid injections into the sole of the foot, or in certain situations a surgical procedure that releases the plantar fascia.
Foot pain can continue, and progress into a severe condition that affects the ability to walk. Eventually, permanent damage to the plantar fascia or surrounding nerves may occur.

Patient Testimonial by Danny J
First time seeing the doctor, I've been having problems with plantar fasciitis, for years, on and off. The doctor took time to listen to my situation, and explained in detail step by step what was going . He came up with a plan, on how to take care of it, and so far I am totally impressed. The office staff, took an interest of what was going on with my life and we're very friendly. Will be coming back to continue with treatment and will definitely recommend, to my family and friends.

Patient Testimonial by luis m
I contacted this particular doctors office via internet while experiencing foot pain on a Saturday afternoon expecting to leave a message and get a call back Monday. What I didn't expect and surprised with a reply within a couple of hours directly from the doctor, who by the way was on vacation advising me that the office was closed and that someone would contact me first thing Monday morning to schedule an appointment while also offering advice on alleviating my pain. During my appointment with Dr. Taormino I found him to be very thorough, attentive and caring, explaining to me what was causing my pain and how to treat it. I would definitely go back to Dr. Taormino with any other issues.
