Plantar Fasciitis Treatment
If you depend on your feet to help you accomplish countless daily tasks, you probably put them through a lot of punishment — and your feet may now be returning the favor in the form of plantar fasciitis. This inflammation of the underside of the foot can cause chronic, recurring bouts of heel pain and foot pain that make everyday life all but intolerable. But your chiropractor in Vaughan ON can rid you of this torment through advanced plantar fasciitis treatment at Synergy Rehab.
A Common Cause of Heel Pain & Foot Pain
Plantar fasciitis gets its name from the plantar fascia, a tough band of connective tissue that extends from the ball of the foot to the heel. This tissue is instrumental in supporting your arches, which in turn are instrumental in supporting your entire body’s weight as you stand, walk and run. Any musculoskeletal imbalance that places unnatural stress on the feet can irritate and inflame the plantar fascia, including:
Abnormally low or high arches
Long periods of standing in one place at work
Wearing footwear that throws your weight distribution off or provides inadequate arch support (high heels, et cetera)
Overuse injuries sustained in running or other sports
Spinal misalignment affecting your weight distribution and balance
While many other conditions can produce heel pain and foot pain, plantar fasciitis is recognizable for its tendency to be at its worst after a long period off your feet. When you first stand and walk in the morning, for instance, your feet may be especially painful until they become “warmed up.”
Synergy Rehab Offers Advanced Options for Plantar Fasciitis Treatment
Since plantar fasciitis can stem from such a variety of causes, it only makes sense to turn to the multi-disciplinary practitioners and techniques available at Synergy Rehab. Your Vaughan chiropractor can start by analyzing you gait, stance and arches while also asking you about your work habits, lifestyle and footwear choices. You may benefit from spinal adjustments from your Vaughan chiropractor that bring your entire body back into balance, thus relieving the source of strain. If the arches themselves require extra help, we can provide custom orthotics contoured to provide the ideal amount of support to your individual feet.
We’re also one of the few facilities to offer a state-of-the-art technique known as extracorporeal shock wave therapy. This healing modality administers controlled shock waves to the feet. The shock waves stimulate the body’s own natural healing responses to facilitate tissue repair and pin relief. A series of treatments can help your feet’s connective tissues return to health. Lifestyle adjustments, footwear recommendations and other corrective/preventative measures can then help you avoid the pain of plantar fasciitis going forward.
