Plantar Fasciitis is inflammation in the foot that affects the bottom of the foot and can cause tears in the Plantar Fascia ligament. This ligament connects the heel to the five toes. Plantar Fasciitis is typically caused by repetitive stress to the foot such as twisting, prolonged walking or standing, foot injury, and natural wear-and-tear from aging. Plantar Fasciitis may produce symptoms such as stabbing pain, limited mobility, and inability to apply pressure on the foot.
When the pressure from plantar fasciitis is too much to bear, a visit to The Advanced Pain Relief Institute in Lindenhurst may help with pain relief. Our pain relieving treatments can help with providing joint adjustments in the ankle and knee to allow the nerves to communicate freely with that part of the foot and to promote blood flow. Often, a simple joint manipulation can help to release the tension that is causing pain in the foot.

Plantar Fascia is the thick band that attaches the toes to the heel bone. It runs across the bottom of your foot. If you are feeling heel pain, it could because of Plantar Fasciitis. It is most often seen in runners, pregnant women, people who wear shoes that do not support their feet, and overweight individuals. Normally, it is only a stabbing pain that happens in the heel of the foot at the beginning of the day, with the first few steps you take. Then, the pain eventually fades as you continue walking. The pain is also only, usually, felt in one foot, but it is not impossible to feel the pain in both feet. Call our Chiropractor today to get information on how medication, physical therapy, shock wave therapy, and possibly surgery can help you with the pain and discomfort of Plantar Fasciitis.
