If you experience heel pain with the first steps you take in the morning, the cause is likely associated with inflammation of the thick connective tissue that runs from the heel bone to the base of the toes. Causes of plantar fasciitis range from structural problems such as arches that are to high to wearing ill-fitting shoes. Being overweight, having legs of slightly differing lengths, and working on hard surfaces can also contribute to the problem. Initial treatment includes rest and using shoe inserts or heel pads. While chiropractic adjustments made to the heel and foot take the pressure off of plantar fascia, allowing it to relax and heal. When you suffer from plantar fasciitis, you need safe, non-invasive, holistic treatments. We use an integrative approach to help you achieve pain relief; reduce the symptoms of plantar fasciitis.

P.S. People suffering from plantar fasciitis often adjust their gait to avoid the pain, which places stress on other parts of the body that can lead to back pain, sore joints, strained muscles, and other problems.
