The development of plantar fasciitis can make every step you take painful. If you're an active person, this can be especially frustrating. At Universal Chiropractic P.C. in West Seneca, NY, and Buffalo, NY, our team is here to help you understand how plantar fasciitis develops and how chiropractic care can help you get (comfortably) back on your feet.
What Is Plantar Fasciitis?
The plantar fascia is a thick band of tissue that runs through the bottom of your foot, connecting your heel to your toes. This band is important for healthy foot function and helps you walk. When the plantar fascia becomes inflamed, plantar fasciitis develops.
Plantar Fasciitis Causes
There are several factors that can cause plantar fasciitis, including:
- Walking on certain types of surfaces
- Wearing poor quality shoes
- High levels of physical activity (many long-distance runners develop plantar fasciitis at some point)
Symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis
The condition might show up differently in different people. You may find that your plantar fasciitis symptoms come and go, increasing after periods of prolonged activity.
Symptoms of plantar fasciitis may include:
- A stabbing pain on the bottom of the foot
- Pain in the arch of the foot
- Swollen feet, especially following periods of prolonged physical activity
Some people notice that their plantar fasciitis symptoms are worse in the morning and improve over the course of the day.
Finding Plantar Fasciitis Relief
The good news is that working with a chiropractor can help provide you with plantar fasciitis relief. A chiropractor on our team will develop a unique treatment plan to help meet your needs. Treatment plans for plantar fasciitis might include adjustments to help align the lower body and the spine. You may also learn about stretches that you can do before and after physical activity to lessen your symptoms.
