A Comprehensive Guide to Managing Plantar Fasciitis With Chiropractic Care

If you are experiencing sharp, stabbing pain in your heel or arch whenever you take a step, you may have a condition called plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis can significantly impact your ability to enjoy athletic activities or hobbies if left unmanaged. Fortunately, Natural Spinal Care in Dublin, CA, provides customized treatment plans to relieve foot and heel pain and get you back to walking comfortably. Continue reading to learn about plantar fasciitis and how chiropractic care can help manage it.

Causes and Symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis

The plantar fascia is a thick band of connective tissue that runs along the bottom of your foot. Every step you take puts tension and stress on your plantar fascia when this tissue becomes inflamed due to overuse or injury, causing sharp pain. Contributing factors include tight Achilles tendons or calf muscles, being overweight, intense athletic training without rest, improper footwear or support, and foot structure problems like high arches or flat feet.

The most common symptom of plantar fasciitis is stabbing heel pain that is usually worse in the morning. Other plantar fasciitis symptoms include pain that increases over time if untreated, swelling and bruising near your heel, and numbness or tingling in your foot.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help With Plantar Fasciitis

Chiropractic care is highly effective in reducing inflammation and relieving painful symptoms caused by plantar fasciitis. Our chiropractor uses the following techniques to manage your condition:

  • Chiropractic adjustment to improve alignment and take pressure off your feet
  • Deep tissue massage and Graston technique to break up fascial adhesions
  • Custom foot orthotics to support your foot’s arch

Our chiropractor can also provide tips to manage your plantar fasciitis at home. Some of the advice we can offer include:

  • Icing your foot to decrease inflammation and foot pain
  • Gently stretching your calf and foot before getting out of bed
  • Wearing shoes with adequate cushion and arch support
  • Doing foot and lower leg strengthening exercises
