Plantar Fasciitis

If you're having pain in your heel and across the bottom of your foot, it's possible that you're suffering from plantar fasciitis. Our chiropractor at Advanced Family Chiropractic & Rehabilitation in Imperial has years of experience helping patients overcome plantar fasciitis pain. 


What Is Plantar Fasciitis?

Along the bottom of the foot, there is a band of thick tissue that connects the heel to the toes. This band is known as the plantar fascia. Sometimes, this band experiences tiny tears and can become inflamed. This condition is known as plantar fasciitis. 

Plantar Fasciitis Symptoms

While plantar fasciitis symptoms can differ from person to person, most people who have the condition experience a stabbing pain through their heels upon getting out of bed in the morning. Many people find that this pain dissipates throughout the day, and continuous movement makes it better. Plantar fasciitis pain tends to be alleviated by exercise, but returns later once a person’s activity level decreases. The pain also returns after long periods of sitting or standing throughout the day. 

Risk Factors for Plantar Fasciitis

While anyone can develop plantar fasciitis, it's most likely to occur in people who spend a lot of time on their feet, especially standing on hard surfaces. Wearing unsupportive shoes, such as flats or high heels, also increase the likelihood of developing the condition. Being overweight or obese can contribute to the likelihood of plantar fasciitis as well, as extra weight puts additional pressure on the plantar fascia. Walking with an unusual gait can also cause the condition. 

How a Chiropractor Can Help

Chiropractic care is a commonly used solution for treating plantar fasciitis. When you meet with our chiropractor, we'll discuss your symptoms and work to develop a treatment plan to treat both the root cause and the symptoms you're dealing with. There are a number of different components of care that can be helpful for plantar fasciitis, including corrective exercise, spinal adjustment, medical massage, and hot/ cold therapy. We'll also evaluate your gait to find out if the way you walk could be contributing to your pain. You may feel some relief after your first appointment, or it may take some time for you to begin to experience progress.
