Plantar Fasciitis Treatment
Plantar fasciitis is a condition characterized by sharp pains in the arch and heel of the foot. It often affects runners and athletes, as well as anyone who spends a large portion of the day on their feet. Chiropractic care can help alleviate pain and prevent further aggravation of injured tissue.

We have successfully assisted patients overcome a wide variety of chronic pain conditions.
What is Plantar Fasciitis?
The most common cause of heel pain, plantar fasciitis is an injury of the plantar fascia ligament, which supports the arch of your foot. When the tissue is strained, it can become swollen and inflamed. This results in pain in the heel and along the bottom of your foot. There may be small tears in the ligament or in serious cases, a significant rupture.
If you have plantar fasciitis, you may experience pain in one or both feet when you first step out of bed, with some relief after you walk around. You may also notice pain when you sit, climb stairs, or stand on the tips of your toes, and increasing discomfort when you are on your feet for a period of time. Pain can be dull or sharp, but tends to worsen over time.
