What is Plantar Fasciitis?

Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the tissue that connects the heel to the toes. This thick tissue provides arch support and acts as a cushion during impact movements such as walking, running and jumping. Most of the time you are not aware of this tendon, but if it is injured due to overuse or repetitive movements, you may start to feel a slight discomfort in the bottom of your foot that increases to intense pain. 

Symptoms and Causes of Plantar Fasciitis

People who have plantar fasciitis experience heel pain and swelling across the bottom of the foot. The causes of plantar fasciitis include muscular imbalances, poor posture, improper body mechanics, and overuse.

Chiropractic Care in Fargo for Plantar Fasciitis

Dr. Vein evaluates your body to determine the cause of your plantar fasciitis and uses gentle adjustments to position the bones of your foot to reduce pressure on the plantar fascia connective tissue. A properly aligned foot decreases the tension placed on the connective tissue which lets it naturally return to a comfortable position.

Dr. Vein also examines the way your legs and feet move. If he discovers improper body mechanics such as a foot that rotates inward when you walk, he may suggest exercises to strengthen the outside leg muscles to support proper foot position. We may also use:

  • Massage therapy to ease muscle tension and help support proper posture.
  • Proper posture of the spine
  • Spinal adjustments 

As you heal, the staff at Fargo Spine and Rehabilitation may show you exercises to stretch and strengthen the muscles supporting your feet. Dr. Vein also suggests ways to eliminate the pain and shows you how to avoid overusing your feet during repetitive and heavy-lifting movements.
