Los Angeles Lakers’ Pau Gasol Suffers Plantar Fascia Strain

Pau Gasol, forward for the Los Angeles Lakers, suffered a plantar fascia strain in his right foot Tuesday during a game against the Brooklyn Nets.

The injury occurred during the fourth quarter of the game when Gasol attempted to block a shot. He was able to walk off the court on his own, but he did not return to the game.

After the game, it was announced that Gasol suffered a plantar fascia strain. Gasol was scheduled to undergo an MRI yesterday (Wednesday) to assess the injury.

Plantar fascia strains can be very painful. Gasol admits that he has been dealing with plantar fasciitis for a while and has been playing through the pain in his foot, but says this pain is “different.”

Plantar fasciitis is a common sports injury. It is important not to try and play through the pain if you suffer from the condition. Further activity could worsen plantar fasciitis. 

Fortunately, there are several conservative treatment options available for plantar fasciitis if you do suffer from it. Conservative treatment options for plantar fasciitis include:

If you are still having pain after conservative treatment options are tried, there are several more treatment options available for chronic plantar fasciitis.
