Plantar Fascitis

Plantar Fascitis

Plantar FascitisPlantar fascitis is a common condition that causes pain on the bottom of the foot. The plantar fascia is a fibrous band that extends from the heel of the foot to the toes and is responsible for supporting the arch of the foot. The most common symptom is pain in the foot, usually at the inside border of the heel, and is felt usually in the morning as the first steps are taken to get out out bed. The condition usually improves with rest. However, excessive tension on the plantar fascia can lead to chronic irritation, and eventually traction (heel) spurs due to degeneration of bone, and lead to chronic pain. There are many other conditions of the foot that chiropractors can treat through a variety of techniques including modailities, manual joint and soft tissue work, and orthotic perscription. Some examples are metatarsalgia, morton’s neuroma, ankle sprains, and tendonitis.
