Chiropractic Treatment for Plantar Fasciitis
Plantar Fasciitis is a common cause of pain in the heel. It happens when the band of tissue running across the bottom of your foot that attaches your heel to your toes becomes inflamed. The pain usually begins as soon as you take your first step in the morning. As you move around, you find that the pain decreases. It often returns after you have been standing for a long time, or standing after sitting.
What Is Plantar Fasciitis?
The plantar fascia supports your foot arch, and as you walk, absorbs shock. When stress and tension in this area increases, your fascia gets small tears in it. As it continues to stretch and tear, the fascia gets irritated and inflamed. If you think you are experiencing this type of pain and are in the Klamath Falls areas, stop in and visit Advanced Chiropractic today.
Symptoms and Causes of Plantar Fasciitis
Pain from plantar fasciitis usually feels like a stabbing pain near the bottom of the heel of your foot. The pain tends to increase after exercise, but not while you are exercising. Those between the ages of 40 to 60 commonly suffer from plantar fasciitis. Exercise that causes a lot of stress on your heel, like running and dancing, can cause plantar fasciitis to flare up. Those who are overweight may have some problems with plantar fasciitis pain. People with flat feet or a high arch tend to have problems with this condition as well.
Treatment for Plantar Fasciitis
Treatment could be a simple as rest, ice, and stretching of the area. You may need custom orthotics to support the arches of your foot. Having spinal adjustments by our chiropractor may also help with your plantar fasciitis pain because it can improve the communication between the tissue and nerves in your body.
