The plantar fascia is located on the bottom of the feet and it is what forms the arch of our feet. This fascia allows cushioning as we walk and protects the bones in our feet.
Plantar fasciitis is the inflammation and irritation of the plantar fascia which can get very irritated by repetitive motions such as running, jumping or increased activity.
Many people have symptoms after sitting for a period of time or in the morning when they go to stand on their feet and feel a “burning” or “tearing” pain in the bottom of the feet. Pain can also be in the heel, ankle, and tingling or numbness in the toes.
Treatment for plantar fasciitis at our office as been very successful by adjusting the bones in the bottom of the feet, ankle and toes. This allows the foot to stretch as needed and release pressure when repetitive motions are increased. Massage is also done on the feet, ankle and toes to relieve tension on muscles, or tendons that have over compensated due to strains on the joints.
Please call our office for a free consultation to see how we can treat a condition you may be suffering with. Don’t just survive, THRIVE!
I look forward to taking great care of you!
