Causes & Symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis
Plantar fasciitis causes pain along the heel and bottom of the foot. It also hurts when the toes are pulled up, toward the front of the body. Many patients feel worse in the morning as they take their first steps after a night of sleep.
Plantar fasciitis develops slowly over time, so many patients may not realize what is happening. The condition occurs when the tissue that connects to the bones in your foot develops tears or scarring. If your shoes do not provide enough support, you could get plantar fasciitis.
Certain risk factors elevate your chance of developing plantar fasciitis. If you are overweight, spend a lot of time standing, have bone spurs, flat feet, or high arches, or have feet that roll inward while you walk, you could wind up with heel pain. While individuals with sedentary lifestyles are more likely to get plantar fasciitis, increasing your exercising regime can also cause this condition.
How Our Foot Pain Doctor Diagnoses Plantar Fasciitis
While our chiropractor, Dr. Anderson, can tell whether you have plantar fasciitis when you describe your symptoms, we take an ultrasound of your feet to rule out osteoarthritis, another common cause of heel pain. Dr. Anderson also examines your foot reflexes, muscle tone, and balance to diagnose the condition.
Plantar Fasciitis Treatment From Our Chiropractor in McMurray
Chiropractic adjustments reduce inflammation in the foot region, which contributes to your pain. We can also adjust the bones in the foot to provide better support while you walk and relieve pressure that contributes to your heel pain.
If you have flat feet or high arches, we may recommend custom orthotics. Our orthotics are molded to fit your feet, so they provide a superior level of support compared to a product from the drugstore shelves. Not only does arch support cushion the spine, it relieves foot pain and pressure. Orthotics keep you from developing plantar fasciitis again and help you heal from your symptoms.
To further reduce your risk of heel pain, we will demonstrate stretches for your calves, heel, and toe. Stretching keeps the muscle fibers active and healthy, increases your range of motion naturally, and complements our chiropractic care. We may suggest a cold laser. This laser beam penetrates the skin to regenerate tissue, relieve inflammation, and help your body recover on a cellular level.
