Chiropractic Treatments for Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis can literally stop you in your tracks. This painful condition affects many athletes and people who spend prolonged periods on their feet. In this guide, Dr. Wainer and the team at Bowman Chiropractic Center in Arlington, VA, share what exactly this condition is and how chiropractic plantar fasciitis treatments can help.

The Basics of Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is a condition that occurs due to overuse and damage to the plantar fascia. The plantar fascia is a long band of tissue that runs along the bottom of your feet from the toes to the heels. This tissue often develops tears and becomes inflamed due to excessive activity, such as working out, running, or working on your feet. It can also be due to:

  • Changing or increasing your workout or activity level
  • Wearing non-supportive shoes
  • Being overweight

The shape or structure of your feet as well as the type of surface you walk or run on can also play an important role. Even a misalignment in the spinal column can lead to too much pressure on this tissue.

Chiropractic Treatments for Plantar Fasciitis

Chiropractic care offers natural and effective methods for relief. The following are just a few of these methods.

Adjustments and Manipulation

When a misalignment plays a role, adjustments and manipulation can restore alignment and relieve the strain on your fascia. Adjustments and manipulation can be performed on the back, as well as the extremities.

Ultrasound Therapy

Ultrasound therapy sends sound waves deep into the tissues. These waves help relieve tension, break up scar tissue, and encourage blood flow to the treatment site to speed up healing and recovery.

Electrical Stimulation Therapy

Electrical stimulation therapy utilizes tiny electrical pulses to cause the soft tissues to contract and then relax. This relieves pain and spasms, while also pulling blood and healing nutrients to your feet.

Custom Foot Orthotics

Relieving and preventing plantar fasciitis requires having the best support for your needs. Custom foot orthotics are designed specifically for your feet. They ensure that weight is distributed properly, relieving much of the undue strain on the plantar fascia.
