Plantar fasciitis is a common condition among athletes and non-athletes alike. It causes heel pain through the inflammation of the plantar fascia, which is the tissue ligament that connects the heel bone and toes. At Farabaugh Chiropractic, Dr. Brett Stefan and his team provide chiropractic care and other therapies for plantar fasciitis relief.
Therapies at Farabaugh Chiropractic that Help to Alleviate Plantar Fasciitis
Chiropractic Care and Plantar Fasciitis
Plantar fasciitis is caused when the plantar fascia becomes inflamed, weak and swollen. This causes the bottom of the foot or heel to hurt when walking or standing, especially when someone first wakes or after sitting for a long period of time. Plantar fasciitis can be a throbbing pain or a sharp, stabbing pain.
Chiropractic care is an effective treatment therapy for plantar fasciitis and the root cause of the pain. The main benefits of chiropractic care for patients with plantar fasciitis include:
- Reduces stress in the plantar fascia
- Provides effective pain management
- Reduces the risk of further injury
- Promotes healing
Relieving Plantar Fasciitis and Other Types of Foot Pain at Farabaugh Chiropractic
The feet are body parts that are most susceptible to re-injury because of their constant use as well as the amount of wear and tear they receive from the most basic or daily activities, i.e. walking. Dr. Stefan will work with each patient to diagnose, manage and treat plantar fasciitis and other foot problems.
