During your initial visit, our chiropractor evaluates your body's alignment to determine where small adjustments can be made to reduce the discomfort in your feet. We also examine your feet to determine if you are dealing with plantar fasciitis.
Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the group of tissue that is positioned along the bottom of your foot. When this becomes irritated due to high-impact activities, overuse, poor footwear or repetitive stress, the connective tissue may become swollen and limit your mobility. Along with the inflammation of plantar fasciitis, you may also experience pain, especially near the heel of the affected foot. The pain is often more intense in the morning and may be felt along the arch of your foot as well as the heel.
Our chiropractors evaluate your symptoms and body position and then develop a chiropractic care plan to eliminate your plantar fasciitis symptoms.
Chiropractors are known for gently adjusting the spine and they also have the knowledge to manipulate other bones. Our chiropractors use chiropractic adjustments to position the bones of your feet to reduce the pain, pressure, and inflammation you are feeling. They may also adjust your ankles and knees to align your legs in a way that allows for an equal distribution of weight throughout your foot, instead of placing the majority of your weight in one area. Once your feet are placed into a natural alignment, our chiropractors show you exercises to stretch the bottoms of your feet.
These stretches reduce pain and help restore your mobility. We may also show you alternative ways to exercise until your plantar fasciitis has healed and other alternatives to prevent the discomfort from returning.
Our goal is to eliminate the inflammation and then protect your feet from future injuries. This future protection may include the use of orthotics to stabilize your feet and provide arch support when needed. Your chiropractic care for plantar fasciitis in Sanford is a complete program designed to reduce pain and help you return to an active lifestyle.
