Plantar Fasciitis

What Is Plantar Fasciitis And How Is It Caused?

Plantar fasciitis is a condition that is caused when the plantar fascia, a ligament located along the bottom of your foot, becomes torn. This ligament stretches from the base of the toes to the heel. This condition usually causes a great deal of pain and makes it difficult to walk. When the condition is first noticed, the tear or tears may be small in size. Failing to treat plantar fasciitis will lead to larger tears of the ligament. 

How Can This Condition Be Avoided?

Plantar fasciitis can be caused in a few different ways. If you wear shoes that are not the proper size or that do not offer adequate support can lead to the weakening of the ligaments located on the undersides of your feet, which in turn will lead to them tearing. Make sure you purchase shoes that provide plenty of support and use the correct size. If you stand for long durations of time, this condition can be the result. Make sure take breaks where you get off of your feet to minimize the risk of contracting this condition. Plantar fasciitis could also be a symptom of an arthritic condition of the feet. If you experience any pain in your feet, it is best to have an evaluation conducted to treat the condition before it worsens.

How Can Our Chiropractor Help Reduce Pain?

Seeing our chiropractor is an option available to reduce discomfort caused by plantar fasciitis. An assessment of your condition is conducted to determine the extent of your pain and range of mobility in your feet. Adjustments are conducted to reduce stress upon the joints near the affected areas giving you trouble. This will allow for increased mobility and promotes healing of the areas.

Secondary injuries are often caused by the presence of plantar fasciitis. The pain associated with this condition often causes someone to change the way that they put pressure upon their feet. This can cause poor posture as well as stress upon the spine. Our chiropractor will take a look at your back to determine whether spinal adjustments are required to minimize pain as well.
