Around 3 million individuals suffer from plantar fasciitis

 

 

  • Heel pain
  • Foot pain
  • Spurs
  • Tight tendons
  • Stiffness

 

Signs of a long day, wearing the wrong shoes, both or you may have a condition known as plantar fasciitis. We don’t take our health seriously until we go through excruciating pain or some form of debilitation. Feet are the foundation of the body and when they are not at 100% there are going to be problems.

Identifying, diagnosing, and treating plantar fasciitis can be fast and easy with chiropractic orthotics!

 

What is it?

Plantar Fasciitis is inflammation of the tissues in your foot.

People think it only affects the heel, however, it can affect any or all of the bottom of the foot. Because it�s the tissue between the toes and heel that gets inflamed.

  • The tissue is called �fascia� hence the name of the condition: plantar fasciitis.
  • Heel spurs were once thought to be the cause of the discomfort, but now is a symptom of plantar fasciitis.
  • Many people who have plantar fasciitis wake up with stabbing pain in the bottom of their feet during the first few steps of their day.
  • Early morning pain and stiffness is a big indication of PF.
  • Also called �policeman�s heel,� pain and discomfort also arise after long periods of standing, walking, exercise.
  • The fascia in the foot acts as a shock absorber, which helps support the arch of the foot.
  • With time, increased tension, small tears begin to happen in the fascia, that leads to the inflammation.

 

Who gets Plantar Fasciitis?

People that stand on their feet for long hours, such as:

  • Factory workers
  • Teachers
  • Doctors
  • Nurses
  • Retail employees

Are at a higher risk of developing plantar fasciitis.

 

Improper Footwear/Posture

Wearing improper shoes, meaning too tight, too loose is another contributing factor.

Shoes that have arch support and heel protection are considered best and help to avoid pain and discomfort.

  • Poor posture
  • Abnormal walking gait

When heel or foot pain is not treated, it can lead to

  • Back
  • Knee
  • Hip problems�

Many adjust their walking to compensate for the pain and discomfort that can lead to more problems.

Being flat-footed raises the likelihood of developing plantar fasciitis regardless of age or lifestyle.

 

 

Other Contributing Factors

Weight also contributes to plantar fasciitis because it puts greater stress and tension on the feet as they hold the body. Exercise can help, but be sure that they are exercises specifically designed to help treat plantar fasciitis. Because certain types of exercise like running, aerobics, jumping, and dance-based workouts can lead to heel pain and plantar fasciitis.

Diagnosis

Identifying and diagnosing plantar fasciitis is straightforward and relatively easy. Diagnosing plantar fasciitis does not require an X-Ray or MRI, which is one reason many people avoid seeking treatment. But it’s best to seek the advice of a trusted healthcare professional.

Treatment

There are several ways to treat plantar fasciitis:

  • Rest is one of the best remedies, especially if it is caused by exercise or excessive stress.
  • Icing the area can help manage the pain
  • Stretching and/or light physical therapy
  • Stretches that focus on the Achilles tendon and lower leg muscles help stabilize and strengthen the ankles and heels.

This helps to:

  • Stand
  • Walk
  • Workout
  • Move around

Chiropractic and physical therapy can help with:

  • Stretching the muscles and tendons
  • Work out and tension
  • Provide day-to-day stretches

What’s Afoot

Particularly true with foot dysfunction is when the mechanics of the foot are off, which can throw off the alignment of the entire body.�Overpronation and oversupination in the foot�can lead to severe and�chronic back pain. Ankle pain refers to any type of pain or discomfort in the ankle. This pain could generally be due to an injury, such as a sprain, or due to another health issue. As stated by the National University of Health Sciences, or NUHS, an ankle sprain is one of the most frequent causes of foot pain, making up 85 percent of all ankle injuries. A sprain occurs when the ligaments tear or are overstretched.

Chiropractors utilize a combination of treatment techniques and methods to ease ankle and foot pain. Chiropractic care is a safe and effective, alternative treatment option which focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of a variety of injuries and conditions associated with the musculoskeletal and nervous system, including foot and ankle pain.
