Effective Treatment for
Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis, one of the leading causes of heel pain, occurs when the thick band of tissue connecting your heel bone to your toes becomes inflamed. If left untreated, this condition is unlikely to resolve on its own and can even worsen over time. At our chiropractic practice, we offer comprehensive treatment options, including laser therapy and focused chiropractic care, to effectively address the condition and provide lasting relief.

Understanding Plantar Fasciitis

The pain experienced by individuals with plantar fasciitis is often most severe during the first few steps after getting out of bed in the morning. Extended periods of standing or rising from a seated position can also trigger the pain. Surprisingly, the discomfort tends to worsen after exercise rather than during physical activity.

Identifying Risk Factors

While plantar fasciitis can develop without a clear cause, certain factors can increase your risk of developing this condition:

Age: Most cases of plantar fasciitis occur in individuals between the ages of 40 and 60.

Foot mechanics: Individuals with flat feet, high arches, or abnormal walking patterns may experience plantar fasciitis due to the impact these issues have on weight distribution while standing. Such imbalances can place additional stress on the plantar fascia.

Obesity: Excess weight places additional strain on the plantar fascia, making those who are significantly overweight more prone to developing this condition.

Certain occupations: Jobs that require prolonged standing or walking on hard surfaces, such as factory workers, nurses, and teachers, can lead to damage and inflammation of the plantar fascia.

Comprehensive Chiropractic Care

Through precise adjustments, we target joints in the feet, ankles, knees, hips, and spine, promoting improved function and facilitating the healing process. By addressing misalignments in the lower back and hips that can disrupt your gait and exacerbate the condition, chiropractic care plays a vital role in managing plantar fasciitis.

The Power of Laser Therapy

In addition to chiropractic adjustments, we offer state-of-the-art laser therapy as a key component of our treatment protocol for plantar fasciitis. This advanced technology utilizes low-level laser energy to penetrate the affected tissues, stimulating cellular repair and reducing inflammation. Laser therapy has shown remarkable results in accelerating healing, providing pain relief, and restoring function in patients with plantar fasciitis.
