Plantar Fasciitis Relief from Your Chiropractor in West Hartford, CT

Get plantar fasciitis relief with your local chiropractor

Many individuals who suffer from plantar fasciitis dread getting out of bed every morning.  Their first step is likely to be a very painful one.  Fortunately, treatment from our chiropractor can naturally and effectively manage the pain of patients who visit us at West Hartford Chiropractic.

Overview of This Disorder

Patients develop this condition after straining the plantar fascia.  This is a flat tissue band whose function is to support the arch of your foot.  It stretches from your heel bone to your toes. 

A strain that weakens the plantar fascia might affect it in several ways.  Weakening typically results in inflammation, small tears, and swelling.  These cause pain in the heel with each step and sometimes when merely standing.  Chiropractors note that this slow-developing disorder is responsible for 80 percent of heel pain.

Our chiropractor cites these risk factors for plantar fasciitis:

  • Feet that roll considerably inward when you walk
  • High arches or flat feet
  • Walking, running, or standing for long periods, especially on hard surfaces
  • Being overweight
  • Poorly fitting shoes or other footwear
  • Bone spurs
  • Tight Achilles tendons or muscles in the calf

The symptom most frequently linked to this disorder is a pain after taking the first step after getting out of bed or after sitting for a prolonged interval.  Although pain and stiffness often diminish after a few steps, the foot affected could become progressively painful as the day continues.  Climbing a set of stairs or resting after extended standing is also sometimes painful.

How Chiropractors Help Plantar Fasciitis Patients

Chiropractic treatment and management of plantar fasciitis rely on natural therapies that avoid surgery and medication.  Patients in our practice receive complete chiropractic, neurological, and orthopedic exams prior to a diagnosis.  Using pressure from his hands, our doctor evaluates the tightness, texture, and mobility of soft tissues.

The active release technique (ART) is the core therapy for this condition.  Chiropractors rely on ART as a type of massage.  Use of its stretching motions disrupts fibrous lesions that cause pain.  For many patients, prescribed exercises such as calf and toe stretches at home are helpful in boosting the range of motion.

Rest and cutting back on activities that aggravate this condition are also important parts of treatment.  Icing the affected heel can lower the level of both swelling and pain.  Another self-help step to speed relief is acquiring new footwear with a sufficient arch support and a cushioned sole.
