Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is caused by a combination of improper biomechanics and repetitive movements.

The strain that occurs in the plantar fascia, (a fibrous band which runs from your heel to your toes), causes inflammation, degeneration, and pain.  The pain is usually along the inner side of the bottom surface of the heel and arch of the foot, and is made worse with running, walking or pulling the toes up toward the sky.

Chiropractic care can be greatly effective in not only reducing the pain involved with this condition, but furthermore in creating a proper program to correct biomechanics and rehabilitate weak structures in the foot and leg which contributed to the problem in the first place.  Custom-made orthotics are often helpful in this condition, as well.
