What Is Plantar Fasciitis?
This condition often involves pain in the foot. The plantar fascia is a thick band of tissue that runs the length of the foot from the heel bone to the toes. This band of tissues helps you to walk. In some situations, it can develop inflammation. This causes the pain you feel from plantar fasciitis. It’s not an uncommon condition, but it ranges in severity to mild to severe. The condition is one that should receive treatment because it can worsen over time.
The most common symptoms of plantar fasciitis include:
- A stabbing pain in the foot
- Pain that seems to be worst with your first steps in the morning
- The pain often gets better with walking
- The pain can return after you’ve been standing or sitting for a long period of time
This condition is very common in individuals who are runners. However, it can also occur in other situations in which the plantar fascia is stretched or otherwise overused or used improperly. For example, those who do not wear supportive shoes are more likely to experience it. It is also common in those who are overweight.
How Can Your Chiropractic Office Help with Plantar Fasciitis?
Many people who suffer from plantar fasciitis will develop the condition from the way in which they walk. If you have poor posture or you do not walk in what is considered a normal position, this will cause a misalignment of your spinal column. This is common in situations where a person has overused or injured the spinal column or from disease. When you visit your chiropractic office, our first task will be to understand the underlying cause of your pain.
We can often offer treatment options that address the underlying cause. For example, you may be able to obtain massage therapy, which can help to encourage the body’s natural healing process. It increases the amount of blood flow to the impacted area. We’ll also recommend chiropractic adjustments to properly align the spinal column through gentle force applied to the impacted area. Our goal is also to help you avoid long-lasting complications. We may recommend corrective exercises, physical therapy, and orthopedics to help correct the way you walk.
