What is Plantar Fasciitis?
Plantar fasciitis is a condition that refers to a lingering pain on the bottom of the foot. The stabbing heel pain associated with plantar fasciitis is frequently experienced when you get out of bed in the morning and take your first steps of the day. As you continue moving throughout the day, your heel pain may decrease for brief periods of time, but may once again intensify after long periods of standing or sitting. Plantar Fasciitis can affect anyone, not just the old or the weak particularly. Plantar fascia is a long band of thick, fibrous tissue that extends along the bottom of your foot from your heel to your toes. This tissue becoming inflamed, irritated, or damaged, can cause you very intense heel pain. This is a health condition most commonly known as plantar fasciitis.
What Causes Plantar Fasciitis?
Most of the time, Plantar Fasciitis occurs when the ligament that supports the arch of the foot become strained or overly stressed. However, there is a wide variety of precipitating factors that can lead to inflammation of the plantar fascia. Some of these things may include:
- Over-pronating (rolling your feet inward when you walk)
- Having flat feet (or, conversely, high-arched feet)
- Being overweight (putting more pressure on your arch)
- Standing for long periods of time in bad shoes
- Having tight Achilles tendons (increasing stress)
- Sudden increase in repetitive stress activities, such as running or cycling
- Wearing the wrong shoes
- Hip misalignment (over adjustment can cause many injuries)
How can Chiropractic care help Plantar Fasciitis?
Plantar Fasciitis is condition that normally does not respond well to traditional methods of treatment. Chiropractic adjustments done by a licensed chiropractic practitioner is often enough to get the job done, or at least a step in the right direction. These adjustments usually will alleviate the pain caused by inflammation of the foot. It mainly does so by loosening muscles up and allowing more free movement, the restriction of movement is mainly what causes pain. It will also help increase the work and movement range flexibility of the calf allowing your foot to relax.
