Do you suffer from pain on the bottom of your foot? Is it difficult to walk because of pain in your arch or heel? You may be suffering from plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis is a common problem that one in 10 people will experience in their lifetime.
The plantar fascia is a broad band of connective tissue that attaches to the base of the toes and the heel. It supports the arch of the foot and absorbs shock when walking. If this fascia is damaged due to injury or repetitive stress, it becomes inflamed and causes pain, known as plantar fasciitis.
Common symptoms of plantar fasciitis include pain on the bottom of the heel or in the arch of the foot. This pain is typically described as a stabbing pain. However, some people describe the pain as an ache or a bruised sensation. The pain is commonly worse in the morning or when standing up after a prolonged period of sitting. Untreated, plantar fasciitis may become a chronic condition that affects your ability to stand, walk and run. Over time, it may lead to knee, hip, or back problems due to changing your walk to avoid the plantar fasciitis pain.
When you come to Trinity Chiropractic for your plantar fasciitis, Dr. Iszler will meet with you for a detailed consultation. He will perform an examination to find the root of your problem. After he develops a treatment plan for your specific condition, he will give his recommendations to correct the problem and give you long-term relief.
Since a common cause of plantar fasciitis is misalignment of one or more bones in the foot, chiropractic adjustments are commonly used to restore normal alignment and function, thereby relieving tension on the plantar fascia. Another effective treatment option is our state-of-the-art Erchonia FX 405 therapeutic laser. The FX laser is the only laser with FDA clearance to treat plantar fasciitis. This laser helps to decrease pain and inflammation with no downtime or side effects. These treatments are combined with exercises and stretches to specifically target the plantar fasciitis, decreasing tension on the involved tissues.
