Fortunately, our Allied Physical Medicine facility in Lancaster, CA offers foot pain treatment to bring relief to our patients.
What Is Plantar Fasciitis?
The plantar fascia is a fibrous band of connective tissues that extends along the bottom of the foot. It is connected to the heel and toes and it is key in delivering stability to the arch of the foot. Plantar Fasciitis develops when this sheet of tissues becomes irritated.
Common Causes for Plantar Fasciitis
The plantar fasciitis takes a lot of punishment; it acts as a cushion or shock absorber in connection with the arches of the feet. If there is too much strain on the fascia, it can result in the bones of the feet becoming misaligned and lead to distress for the soft tissues of the feet.
High impact activities such as running, dancing, jumping, as well as having flat feet, being obese, tight calf muscles, aging, and standing for long periods of time in ill-fitting shoes are some reasons for experiencing plantar fasciitis.
Symptoms of The Condition
Sharp, stabbing pain within the arch or heel of your foot is the indicator of this disorder. The pain might subside for a while before reoccurring. It seems to manifest after intense activities, getting up to walk after being sedentary or lying down for a long time.
How Our Chiropractic Care Can Help
A Chiropractor can offer foot pain treatment in the form of aligning the bones within your foot as well as your musculoskeletal frame to alleviate pain and bring a state of equilibrium. There will be a suggestion made for physical therapy, which will include exercises to stretch the plantar fasciitis, tissues, and muscle to lower the risk of future damage to the fascia.
