Plantar Fascitis

Plantar fasciitis commonly causes a stabbing pain in the heel of the foot, which is worse during the first few steps of the day after awakening. As you continue to walk on the affected foot, the pain gradually lessens. Usually, only one foot is affected, but it can occur in both feet simultaneously.

Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common explanations of heel pain. It is caused by inflammation to the thick band that connects the toes to the heel bone, called the plantar fascia, which runs across the bottom of your foot. The condition is most commonly seen in runners, pregnant women, overweight people, and individuals who wear inadequately supporting shoes. Plantar fasciitis typically affects people between the ages of 40 and 70.

Your Chiropractor may use manual muscle techniques for the Soleus muscle to help alleviate muscular trigger points that create tension and pulling on the Achilles tendon. This will reduce tension on the plantar fascia and reduce pain. Stretching exercises are recommend to relieve pain and aid in the healing process. Sometimes application of athletic tape is recommended to support the sore ligaments until they can heal and become more stable.
