Plantar Fasciitis Treatment San Diego
Are your first steps in the morning painful? Is it usually stabbing pain that involves inflammation on the tissues at the bottom of each foot from the toes to the heel bone? It may be painful in the beginning, but it gets better slowly. However, it may return after you have been standing for too long or sitting and standing up immediately. When inflamed, the band of tissue (plantar fascia) is called plantar fasciitis and is caused when you put too much stress on your feet or overuse it. Plantar fascia protects your foot's muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves. Not only this, but it also helps your foot function properly with every step of yours. We understand that pain in any form is disrupting and making it difficult for you to continue with work or personal projects.
What Causes Plantar Fasciitis?
Plantar Fasciitis may happen due to plantar fascia (a band of tissue at the bottom of each foot from the toes to the heel bone) being overstretched or overused by the ligament. Although, a small tear in the fascia tissue can also cause pain. However, it also depends on the foot structure, which can further develop plantar fasciitis.
The condition can happen to anyone like
- A runner
- Someone with active nature of work
- Reducing pins and needles sensations
- An obese person
- Someone with structural foot issues
- Someone with tight Achilles Tendons
- Someone who always wears soft soul shoes with poor arch support.
How do Chiropractors Treat Plantar Fasciitis?
If you notice any signs or symptoms of plantar fasciitis, it is better not to sit over it. The idea is to live a pain-free and overall healthy life. And we make it happen by providing a personalized treatment plan to meet patient’s symptoms and treatment goals while minimizing potential side effects.
Our customized plan includes thoroughly assessing your condition, starting with your medical history, signs, symptoms, etc. Then the patient will undergo a physical exam, and the chiropractor will lightly press on your plantar fascia to feel for inflammation and check your pain level. Then we perform adjustments to your feet, ankles, knees, hips, and spine. The idea is to release pressure and help your feet relax. Even specific stretches and exercises can help release tension and stress on the bottom of your feet. Ergonomic adjustments sometimes help shift the weight as you sit or stand. So, schedule an appointment with Hifai Chiropractic at (858) 434-8080 today.
