Learn more about what to expect during treatment for plantar fasciitis.
Plantar fasciitis may also be known as "policeman’s heel" and is a sign of inflammation in the heel. This condition results in inflammation in the tissue that connects the heel bone and the toes. When this tissue is inflamed it leads to pain in the heel and throughout the bottom of the foot.
This pain in the foot is very common. More than 3 million new cases are reported in the US. It is more common among adults forty to sixty years of age. Also those who are obese or stand on their feet for long periods of time are more likely to develop this heel pain. Doing certain exercises including long distance running and ballet, can attribute to plantar fasciitis, as well as certain foot mechanics. For example, if you are flat footed this could lead to plantar fasciitis.
Here in Charlotte your chiropractor treats plantar fasciitis by using chiropractic treatments. These adjustments realign the spinal column so that you aren’t experiencing pressure on your nerves from disc injuries. Physical therapy and corrective exercises can also be prescribed to treat plantar fasciitis. We also offer acupuncture here at Omni Wellness Center so to treat this condition without surgery or drugs.
