Plantar Fasciitis is a painful condition affecting millions of people. If you have it, you know it, since it presents itself as intense burning pain, primarily in the heel of the foot, especially in the morning when first getting out of bed. It is caused by inflammation or tightening of the foot’s plantar fascia, the layer of tough connective tissue on the bottom of the foot. Plantar fasciitis has many causes, the primary two being overuse and repetitive stress, such as running. Chiropractic physicians can provide non-invasive treatment for this debilitating condition. Their treatment plans may consist of ultrasound, manual therapy, gait training, and manipulation of the foot to provide pain relief. It may take several months to heal completely.
Plantar Fasciitis can take several months to heal, but by adding chiropractic treatments to your recovery plan, you can feel better faster while more effectively managing your pain. Regular chiropractic treatments can also keep the condition from becoming chronic. By working with your chiropractor and following their recommendations you can reduce your pain and shorten your healing time. To schedule an appointment, please call our clinic at (860) 621-2225.
