Foot Pain Got You Down?

If there is one thing that can affect your quality of life it is experiencing foot and heel pain daily. The most common reason for foot pain is a condition called plantar fasciitis. This is excruciating heel pain that is worse in the morning. The pain sometimes radiates into the arch. You may try to find that one way to walk that won’t cause pain.

What is Plantar Fasciitis

What is plantar fasciitis and what can you do about it? The bottom of the foot has a group of muscles called fascia. Furthermore, fascia is almost like saran wrap or stretch and seal. It’s a thin layer of connective tissue around the muscles. Picture the fascia stretching from the bottom of the heel up to the toes. Now, apply stress to the foot, such as standing all day, working out, or wearing poor footwear.

Moreover, the layer of fascia on top of the muscle gets irritated and inflammation builds up. Inflammation creates tightening of the muscles and pulls at the part of the fascia that attaches to the heel. This creates inflammation on the heel. For example, during sleep the toes relax and when you go weight-bearing in the morning that fascia and those muscles need to lengthen and they do not want to do that. As a result, it will stretch and lengthen in order for you to walk but you’re going to pay the price because there is going to be a pain.

Benefits of Chiropractic Treatment

In conclusion, how can we correct this? Firstly, with a series of chiropractic visits treating the fascia and muscles, it eases the pressure on the heel and fascia. However, untreated plantar fasciitis could cause heel spurs that cannot be reversed without surgery. It feels like walking on a pebble for the rest of your life. This is an outstanding example of how procrastination is the thief of health. If you are experiencing heel pain do not let it go. Get it checked as early as possible and relieve the pressure of the heel to prevent a heel spur from starting.
