Seattle Seahawks Red Bryant Suffering From Plantar Fasciitis
Red Bryant, defensive end for the Seattle Seahawks, sat out practice Wednesday due to plantar fasciitis. Apparently, Bryant has suffered from the condition for some time and this is not the first time he has had to miss out on practice because of his plantar fasciitis.
In a press conference on Wednesday, Head Coach Pete Carroll talked about Bryant and when asked whether or not Bryant would be well enough to play in Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears, he said he did not know and "we've got to wait and see."
"His foot is really bothering him," Carroll said in Wednesday's press conference. "He's got a plantar fascia issue that he's dealing with. He's had it for a while, it's just kind of flared up here in the last couple of weeks."
Plantar fasciitis, also known as heel spur syndrome, can be extremely painful. The term plantar fasciitis is commonly used to refer to an inflammation of the connective tissue in the foot, called the plantar fascia, which stretches from the base of the toes, across the arch of the foot, to the point at which it inserts into the heel bone.
There are many ways to treat plantar fasciitis and, fortunately, the condition can usually be treated conservatively. Conservative treatments that may be tried for plantar fasciitis include:
Remember that you should always consult a physician before taking any medications. In cases where conservative treatments don't work and the plantar fasciitis becomes chronic, there are other treatments, such as Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) and dry needling, that may be tried and are often successful in treating the condition.
