Plantar Fasciitis Care in Hot Springs

woman stretching fasciaAs one of the most common causes of heel pain, plantar fasciitis involves inflammation of the thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes. At Body in Balance Chiropractic, we’re proud to offer focused, natural care for patients dealing with this condition.

What Does it Feel Like?

The pain that people with plantar fasciitis experience is typically the worst with the first few steps after getting up in the morning. This pain can also be triggered by extended periods of standing or when getting up after sitting. The pain is typically worse after exercise, not during it.

What Are the Risk Factors?

Although plantar fasciitis can develop without an apparent cause, some factors can increase your risk of developing this condition:

Age. Most people with plantar fasciitis are between 40 and 60.

Foot mechanics. Those who have flat feet, a high arch, or an abnormal walking pattern can experience plantar fasciitis because those issues can affect the way weight is distributed while standing. Added stress can be placed on the plantar fascia.

Obesity. People who are significantly overweight often suffer from the condition because excess weight puts extra stress on the plantar fascia.

Certain occupations. Factory workers, nurses, teachers, and others who spend the majority of their working hours walking or standing on hard surfaces can experience damage to the plantar fascia.

Get the Help You Deserve

We’ll start with an examination to determine the cause of your pain and then develop a specific plan to adjust the joints in your feet, ankles, knees, hips, or spine. These adjustments help to improve function on the bottom of your feet to promote healing.
