Plantar Fasciitis Treatment
Plantar Fasciitis And Pain In Your Heels
Plantar fasciitis is a condition that can cause severe pain in your heels and the arches of your feet. It occurs when there is inflammation in the plantar fascia beneath your foot. This is a tissue band that secures your heel bone to your toes and it can become injured. At APEX Wellness Center we are ready to develop a treatment plan that will reduce pain and get your plantar fasciitis under control.
Symptoms Of Plantar Fasciitis
Intense heel pain is the most common symptom of plantar fasciitis. You may also feel stiffness and pain in the arch of your foot and have trouble walking without pain. The symptoms can come on quickly in the case of an acute injury, or they can develop over time. If symptoms are mild, you can try at-home remedies first to see if this takes care of the problem.
At-Home Care For Plantar Fasciitis
Start treatment by avoiding weight-bearing exercises. Find new activity, such as swimming, to keep your cardiovascular system in shape. Give your feet some time to recover from the inflammation and use ice on your heels to help reduce pain. You can try over-the-counter pain medication to ease your pain, and try massaging and stretching the bottom of your feet to help with the tight tissue.
More Aggressive Treatment From Your Chiropractor
A chiropractor can help treat plantar fasciitis by adjusting your spine to make sure your gait is normal. Your chiropractor may use ultrasound on your plantar fascia to reduce the inflammation and help your tissue heal. Also, massage may provide some relief, as well as examining the function of your feet to see if your joints are mobile.
Natural Treatment For Pain Relief
When your heel pain is intense and you are looking for natural ways to heal, it's time to try chiropractic care. With gentle adjustments, massage, ultrasound and stretching, you can find pain relief for better mobility. As your plantar fasciitis heals, you will need to continue to monitor for a return of your symptoms to avoid injuring your feet once again.
