Have you ever woken up, stepped out of bed, just to be greeted by a stabbing pain on the bottoms of your feet with the first steps you take? Odds are that you have plantar fasciitis.
Plantar fasciitis is a chronic inflammation of a thick band of tissue that connects the heel bone to the toes on the sole of the foot. It is most commonly caused by a sprain injury or repetitive use; if you have a job that requires a lot of walking or standing, that repetitive damage adds up and can cause plantar fasciitis. In other words, you’ve done too much to your feet without proper care! Plantar fasciitis can be extremely painful and even debilitating if left untreated.
The good news is that plantar fasciitis can be managed and even relieved!
Dr. Jaclyn has extensive experience in natural, alternative treatment and management of plantar fasciitis and has had great success in alleviating pain and discomfort. Dr. Jaclyn's mother is one who has had extreme discomfort due to plantar fasciitis, but with precise adjustments and therapy performed by Dr. Jaclyn, she has been able to go about in stocking feet without pain once again!
Here's what you can do to manage your plantar fasciitis at Progressive Chiropractic (located in Gilbert AZ)!
One of the best ways to address plantar fasciitis is to address the alignment of the bones of the foot. When your bones are out of alignment (what we call subluxation), the stress of the fascia that connects them will increase, as will the inflammation that is already present (and perhaps even cause the inflammation in the first place).
In addition to Chiropractic adjustments, Dr. Jaclyn knows exactly how to rehabilitate the muscles of your feet. You will be assisted in strengthening weak muscles as well as stretching the muscles that have become too tight.
