Society has plenty of "weekend warriors" or individuals who live an active lifestyle. Staying fit comes with dealing with nagging pains from time to time. One of the most common injuries is foot pain or the proper medical term, plantar fasciitis. The severity of the pain could make every step taken a difficult task.
The good news is there are several treatment plans available at Chiropractic USA to address plantar fasciitis. If you live in or around Pleasant Grove and would like to learn more about our treatment plans for plantar fasciitis, contact Dr. Moore at Chiropractic USA.
What is Plantar Fasciitis?
One of the most common types of foot pain is plantar fasciitis. The cause of the pain is inflammation of the tissue that runs across the bottom of the foot. It connects the heel bone to your toes. The foot's arch acts as a shock absorber while walking or running. However, the stress from these activities can cause small tears over time.
The pain associated with plantar fasciitis is a stabbing sensation. It is usually felt when a person gets up in the morning. The level of pain is short but constant with each step taken before it reduces in time. However, pain from plantar fasciitis will return to individuals who stand for long periods during the day.
Plantar fasciitis is common in active runners or those participating in activities that place a high level of stress on the heel. People who are overweight or between the age of 40-60 years old are also susceptible to developing severe foot pain.
Chiropractic Care for Plantar Fasciitis
Our chiropractor in Pleasant Grove will diagnose your plantar fasciitis based on your medical history and the results of a comprehensive examination. The exam will consist of checking the tenderness of the bottom of the foot. The results will help identify the location of the foot pain and the proper course of chiropractic care. We offer a variety of treatments to provide pain relief and reduce inflammation. A reduction of inflammation decreases the threat of sustaining a plantar fasciitis injury.
