Can a chiropractor help with plantar fasciitis?

Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is often associated with overdoing an activity or an increase in activity. Sometimes easing off of the activity can be help.  Poor arch support and or tight muscles around the foot can contribute to plantar fasciitis.

Plantar fasciitis can be sharp heel pain very near the arch of the foot. Sometimes plantar fasciitis can be burning or tingling.  There may be heel tenderness.  It may start to get worse with time. The plantar fasciitis pain is usually noticeable in the morning when you get out of the bed as the planar fascia shortens when the foot is resting.

The use of the modality of ultrasound with electrical stimulation helps with plantar fasciitis. Ice massage, kinseo taping and myofascial release help elongate the fascia. An “old fashion” glass cold Coke bottle may help by rolling your area of the arch. (You could use a tennis ball if you don’t have a Coke bottle.) In addition, orthotics may help.
