Plantar Fasciitis

If you're grappling with foot pain, particularly in the heel, you might be dealing with plantar fasciitis. Let's explore this common condition and discover how chiropractic care can provide relief.

Plantar fasciitis is a condition characterized by inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that connects the heel bone to the toes. This inflammation often leads to stabbing pain in the heel, especially with the first steps in the morning or after long periods of rest.

Common Causes and Symptoms:

  • Overuse or Strain: Repetitive stress on the plantar fascia from activities like running or prolonged standing.

  • Improper Footwear: Ill-fitting shoes or inadequate arch support can contribute to the development of plantar fasciitis.

  • Age and Weight: Individuals between 40 and 60 years old and those carrying excess weight are more susceptible.

  • Pain and Discomfort: The hallmark symptom is sharp heel pain, particularly in the morning or after extended periods of rest.

 

Chiropractic Care for Plantar Fasciitis:

  1. Foot and Ankle Adjustments: Gentle adjustments can help align the foot and ankle, reducing tension on the plantar fascia and promoting healing.

  2. Soft Tissue Manipulation: Targeted massage and stretching techniques focus on releasing tension in the calf muscles and plantar fascia.

  3. Posture and Gait Analysis: Our chiropractors assess your posture and gait, identifying any biomechanical issues that may contribute to plantar fasciitis.

  4. Functional Exercises and Physical therapy: Targeted exercises are used to help restore the movement and strengthen the calf muscles, foot muscles, plantar fascia and surrounding tissues.
