Plantar Fasciitis Treatment in Frisco

Plantar Fasciitis treatmentAs one of the most common causes of heel pain, plantar fasciitis involves inflammation of the thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes. We see many people with this condition at our Frisco practice.

People with this condition typically experience this pain at its worst, with the first few steps after getting up in the morning. Standing for extended periods can also trigger this pain or when getting up after sitting.

Also, the pain is usually worse after exercise, not during it.

What Are the Risk Factors For Plantar Fasciitis Treatment Frisco?

Although plantar fasciitis can develop without an apparent cause, some factors can increase your risk of developing this condition:

Age—Most people with this common type of heel pain are between 40 and 60.
Foot mechanics—Those with flat feet, a high arch, or an abnormal walking pattern, may experience this degenerative condition of the fascia, because those issues can affect the way weight is distributed while standing. Added stress can also be placed on the plantar fascia.

Obesity—People who are significantly overweight often suffer from the condition, because excess weight puts extra stress on the plantar fascia.

Certain occupations—Factory workers, nurses, teachers, and others who spend most of their working hours walking or standing on hard surfaces may experience damage to the plantar fascia.

Natural Plantar Fasciitis Treatment to Address the Condition

Your Frisco chiropractor adjusts the joints in your feet, ankles, knees, hips, and spine to improve function on the bottom of your feet and promote healing.

Orthotics are a short-term solution for a long-term problem. They can provide temporary relief, but won’t fix why it’s happening. Pain level can go up and down depending on the amount of inflammation, until you deal with the root cause.

The first step in plantar fasciitis treatment is to do a comprehensive examination of the body to see where the pain is coming from. We first check for misalignment in the lower back, pelvis, and hips, which could affect the foot. Sometimes, when the lower back is adjusted, the pain goes away because it wasn’t really plantar fasciitis.

Next, we check the foot and ankle, and focus on physical therapy, to ensure your ankle and foot mobility are normal. There is generally a weakness in the foot or ankle, which once corrected dramatically improves the condition. We look at the gait, make minor adjustments, and then at the shoes, which can also affect the condition.

The Plantar Fasciitis Treatment Frisco Process

Reducing the pain from plantar fasciitis is a process. It took time to get to the point where they first have symptoms, so it will take time to correct. At best, this could be days to weeks, a chronic problem could take a month or two.

We had a patient at our Frisco clinic who was a competitive tennis player. He had been through the medical route, physical therapy, etc. for several years. We examined his spine and adjusted just one bone. Each adjustment gradually improved his condition. We fixed it, but it took time before it finally went away.
