Detroit Lions’ Jason Hanson Retires Due to Heel Pain
Jason Hanson, kicker for the Detroit Lions, retired recently. One the main reasons for Hanson’s retirement was plantar fasciitis.
Hanson has been suffering from plantar fasciitis in his left foot for some time and the football player doesn’t want to play hurt anymore.
As a kicker, Hanson put a lot of pressure on that foot and it made his plantar fasciitis worse after kicking. Apparently, the pain was not incapacitating, but it was still hurting him even after treatment.
Plantar fasciitis, also known as heel spur syndrome, is a common sports injury.
Common treatments for plantar fasciitis include:
When plantar fasciitis does not respond to conservative treatments and becomes chronic, there are further treatment options available, such as dry needling and ESWT.
