Plantar Fasciitis Relief in Oak Creek

Finding Relief With Chiropractic

person with foot painPlantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain, characterized by inflammation of the thick band of tissue that connects the heel bone to the toes. The discomfort associated with this condition is often at its worst with the first few steps in the morning or after prolonged periods of standing or sitting. While exercise may aggravate the problem, it’s typically not experienced during physical activity.

Identifying Risk Factors

Although this inflammation of the plantar fascia can develop without an apparent cause, certain factors increase the risk of developing this condition:

  • Age: This condition is commonly seen in individuals between the ages of 40 and 60.
  • Foot Mechanics: flat feet, high arches, or abnormal walking patterns can contribute to plantar fasciitis as they affect weight distribution while standing, placing additional stress on the plantar fascia.
  • Obesity: excess weight puts extra strain on the plantar fascia, making individuals who are significantly overweight more prone to developing this condition.
  • Occupation: jobs that require extended periods of walking or standing on hard surfaces, such as factory workers, nurses, and teachers, can lead to damage to the plantar fascia.
In addition to issues in the foot, spinal misalignments may also contribute to plantar fasciitis. Subluxations in the pelvic area can alter biomechanics, leading to compensatory movements that place additional stress on the hips, knees, and feet.

How We Help

At Evolved Chiropractic, we employ various techniques to diagnose and treat this condition, focusing on adjusting the joints in the feet, ankles, knees, hips, and spine. These adjustments aim to improve the function of the feet, promoting healing and reducing discomfort.

Care typically involves specific adjustments to the foot and ankle region, mainly focusing on the calcaneus, talus, cuneiforms, cuboid, and navicular bones. By addressing misalignments and improving biomechanics, chiropractors aim to alleviate the stress on the plantar fascia and facilitate healing.

While orthotics can sometimes provide temporary relief, we take into consideration that the condition is caused by overstretching of the fascia. That’s why, although they may offer some respite, we don’t recommend orthotics, as they can continue to overstretch the fascia once removed.

Needed Relief and Recovery

Chiropractic offers a natural and holistic approach to diagnosing and treating plantar fasciitis. By focusing on adjusting the affected joints and addressing misalignments in both the foot and spine, Dr. Jon’s goal is to provide relief and promote healing.

While individual results may vary, patients often start to notice improvements after just a few weeks of chiropractic care. This timeline includes regular adjustments to the foot and ankle region to address misalignments and promote proper biomechanics.

Results You Can See

One of our clients came to us with severe foot pain and a diagnosis of plantar fasciitis. After our thorough assessment and palpation of the foot, we identified collapsed or flattened arches.

By performing specific adjustments to the bones in the foot, we could restore the arch and reduce the stretching of the fascia. As a result, the client experienced significant relief.
