25 Sep Understanding Chiropractic Care and Plantar Fasciitis
Does the first step you take each morning cause a painful sensation in your heel? This could be a sign of plantar fasciitis.
The good news?
Eastern Oklahoma Chiropractic has the tools and techniques to help soothe this discomfort!
What is Plantar Fasciitis?
Let’s start with understanding what plantar fasciitis is. It’s a foot condition when the tissue connecting your heel bone to your toes (known as the plantar fascia) gets irritated or swollen. It can be painful when this happens, especially when walking or running.
What does a Chiropractor do?
A chiropractor is a health care professional who uses their hands or small instruments to adjust the body’s structure, particularly the spine. They do this to help your body heal itself without the need for surgery or medications.
How Can a Chiropractor Help with Plantar Fasciitis?
So, how does a chiropractor fit into the picture of plantar fasciitis? They can assist in multiple ways:
Foot Adjustment: By gently adjusting the foot and ankle, a chiropractor can help reduce the pain and inflammation caused by plantar fasciitis.
Spine Alignment: Did you know a misaligned spine can affect your feet too? A chiropractor can ensure your spine is aligned correctly, which may help treat plantar fasciitis.
Stretching and Strengthening Exercises: A chiropractor can provide special exercises to strengthen your foot muscles and stretch your plantar fascia, which can help your feet feel better.
Chiropractic care can be a great way to help you deal with the pain from plantar fasciitis. The best part is that it’s all-natural and involves no surgeries or medications!
