Chicago Bulls’ Joakim Noah Suffering From Plantar Fasciitis

Joakim Noah, center for the Chicago Bulls, missed Friday’s game against the Brooklyn Nets due to plantar fasciitis in his right foot.

Noah has suffered from plantar fasciitis before. Three years ago the basketball player had plantar fasciitis in his left foot.

At this point in time, it is not certain when Noah will be back on the court, but hopefully he will be well enough to participate in Thursday's game against the Denver Nuggets.

Apparently, last time he had plantar fasciitis Noah tried to play through the pain, but this time he plans on making sure he rests and recuperates sufficiently before returning to the court.

Plantar fasciitis is a common sports injury. With sports injuries, you should never push yourself through the pain.

Playing through the pain can make the injury or condition worse and can, with some injuries, cause permanent damage. It can also make your recovery period longer. So, in the long run, pushing yourself to play through the pain can actually make you lose more playing time.

There are several conservative treatment options available for plantar fasciitis including: orthotics, stretching exercises, icing, and physical therapy.

 If you are suffering from plantar fasciitis or another sports injury and would like to set up an appointment with our office, you can contact us at 615-220-8788 or at our toll-free number 888-713-0906. You can also request an appointment online.
