Plantar Fasciitis

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.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I've been going to Dr. Yewchuck for many years. He's always been able to get my stubborn neck and back aligned every time when other Chiropractors can't. I would trust Dr. James any time when it comes to my Chiropractic needs. He adjusted my neck 2 days after having surgery and was very careful getting me on and off the adjustment table. I now live in the Rogue Valley and anytime I'm in Klamath Falls and need an adjustment his office staff always gets me in within minutes of going to the office. Dr. James and his staff are very professional and caring about your individual needs. Can't wait to use his new equipment! I would recommend Advance Chiropractor to anyone."

  • "I don't know where I'd be if it hadn't been for James and his staff.....After a fatal MVA, he was able to find the injuries that neither the ER nor our doctor could at the time. He efficiently and effectively planned a course of action that got me back on the path of recovery. He's compassionate...he has knowledgeable, professional, and friendly staff. I'm proud to know him and the gals in his office.... He can certainly help you...I have no doubts about that."
