Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is best described as the sharp pain you experience while taking your first step on the affected foot after getting out of bed. Chiropractic care offers a drugless solution without the use of any surgery or invasive treatment. Trinity Mills Chiropractic Centre offers pain relief through therapeutic choices like physical exercises and massages.

About plantar fasciitis

The plantar fascia is the name of a thick band of tissue extending across the foot bottom, connecting the toes and heel bone. Its’ main job lies in supporting the foot arch and may sometimes get inflamed due to strain, and it’s called plantar fasciitis.

The strain leads to heel pain because of soft tissue swelling, inflammation, and tears. The most frequent and significant symptom of the condition is a sharp pain, with the initial step taken after being inactive for some time.

The pain is so overwhelming that you may find it challenging to move a step and may also experience discomfort while at rest. Even climbing a flight of stairs or standing for long periods can be harrowing. 

Various factors trigger the development of the condition like:

  • Excess body weight or obesity.
  • Sedentary lifestyle.
  • Ill-fitting footwear.
  • Feet are rolling inwards while walking.
  • High arches or flat feet.
  • A tendency for bone spurs.
  • Extended periods of activities like walking and standing, especially on hard surfaces.
  • Achilles tendons or tight calf muscles.

Chiropractic treatment options

Chiropractic treatment helps achieve pain relief from accidental injuries and muscle overuse conditions like plantar fasciitis. Our treatment starts with an initial consultation where our chiropractor conducts a comprehensive physical exam and evaluates all your symptoms, complaints, and medical history.

After the examination, we formulate a customized treatment plan addressing your circumstances. Our quality chiropractic care plan includes chiropractic adjustments that exert pressure to break up the fibrous lesions which trigger the discomfort of plantar fasciitis. We may also offer the Graston Technique for soft tissue mobilization along with prescribed exercises and massage.
