Plantar fasciitis/heel pain syndrome is the most common cause of heel pain, that results from a gradual degeneration of the plantar fascia or sudden trauma. Individuals describe the pain like sharp stabbing or deep aching in the middle of the heel or along the bottom of the foot that happens when walking or standing. Pain arises in the morning after taking the first few steps or after extended periods of sitting/lying down/non-activity.
As the foot relaxes in the evening, the fascia gains new tears in the morning, that stars the painful cycle all over.
Either one heel or both, the condition can become chronic and can be difficult to heal without a combination of conservative treatments.
Plantar fasciitis is commonly seen in middle-aged patients.
We also see it often in those who place a great deal of stress on their feet like:
There are doctors that believe bone spurs are the cause, and surgery is needed. However, bone spurs are not the cause of plantar fasciitis. Surgery will not eliminate the pain but may weaken or even rupture the plantar fascia
Custom orthotics are recommended to keep the foot in proper alignment and reduce stress on the plantar fascia.
Recovery can take time, but rest assured that 90% of patients recover in 6�9 months.
The average American takes around 5 – 6 thousand steps a day. Wearing the right shoe and orthotic is important for the health of your feet and your whole body.

While�chiropractic care can be an effective treatment for plantar fasciitis�on its own, it is also a very good complement to other treatments for the condition. Patients may use chiropractic in conjunction with physical therapy, massage, and even injections to manage the pain and treat the condition. It can also help with speeding healing and helping to provide better mobility.
