For many patients with plantar fasciitis, the first step after getting out of bed each morning is a dreaded one. Fortunately, our chiropractor in Celebration offers natural plantar fasciitis treatment in Orlando for patients who visit our Orlando Resorts Chiropractic Medispa.
Plantar fasciitis is a disorder that occurs when you strain the plantar fascia, a flat band of tissue connecting the heel bone to the toes to support the arch of the foot. A strain weakens the plantar fascia, sometimes causing small tears, swelling, and inflammation. This in turn causes the heel of the bottom of the affected foot to hurt when standing or taking a step. According to our Orlando chiropractor, plantar fasciitis is the most common culprit behind heel pain.
Risk of developing this disorder is greatest if an individual:
Our Kissimee chiropractor notes that the symptom most often associated with plantar fasciitis is pain when taking an initial step after sitting for an extended period or getting out of bed. After the first several steps, patients might have less pain and stiffness. However, as the day progresses, the affected foot could experience more pain. Sometimes climbing stairs or being at rest after standing for a long time causes pain.
Our Orlando chiropractor uses only natural, drug-free, and surgery-free methods to treat and manage the pain of plantar fasciitis. The primary chiropractic method of plantar fasciitis treatment in Orlando is use of the active release technique (ART).
ART addresses damage to soft tissues. Our chiropractor assesses the texture, mobility, and tightness of these tissues with his hands. He then uses his hands to put pressure on them.
Chiropractors consider ART a kind of therapeutic massage. Its stretching motions break up the fibrous lesions responsible for pain. Our doctor might also recommend exercises such as calf and toe stretches for patients to perform at home to help fibrous lesions disintegrate and to boost range of motion.
Individuals can participate in their treatment plan by giving their feet a rest while at home or at work. Placing ice on the heel of the affected foot can reduce pain and swelling. Other steps to hasten relief include getting new shoes with a cushioned sole and adequate arch support and following any exercise regimen prescribed by our Kissimee chiropractor.
