Understanding Plantar Fasciitis with Rockefeller Health & Medical Chiropractic
You've been waking up with pain in your heel for some time, and you've tried simple medications like NSAIDs to reduce pain. You aren't sure what's going on, but it's become so painful that it's affecting your ability to work. Stop right there and remember that our chiropractors at Rockefeller Health & Medical can help. If you're in New York City and are dealing with foot pain like plantar fasciitis, then our chiropractors can help you overcome and treat this potentially debilitating condition.
What Is Plantar Fasciitis?
Plantar fasciitis is a common cause of heel pain among patients. It causes the inflammation of the thick band of tissue that draws across the bottom of the foot. It connects the heel to the toes. It's easy to know if you have a problem with this inflammation, because you may sense a stabbing feeling in your heel the first thing in the morning. The pain typically stops or is relieved during the day with movement, but if you sit or stand for long periods of time, then you may feel the pain return.
It's common for runners to have plantar fasciitis, but others may as well. People who wear shoes without good support or who are overweight may have a higher risk of developing this condition.
How Can a Midtown Chiropractor Help Relieve Plantar Fasciitis Pain?
At our office, we focus on treatments including:
- Chiropractic care
- Massage therapy
- Physical therapy
- Sports medicine
Each of these has its own benefits for people with plantar fasciitis. For some, massage benefits them by circulating blood and encouraging healing in the feet. Chiropractic adjustments encourage people to stand straight and distribute their weight differently, taking some pressure off the heels. Sports therapists may use the Active Release Technique to manually manipulate the spine, or they may provide support through the use of kinesio taping. Each of these techniques has its own effects, and in combination can provide a natural way to relieve the pain and stress of dealing with plantar fasciitis.
