A leading cause of pain in the heel can be attributed to plantar fasciitis. This painful condition of the plantar fascia, the ligament in the bottom of your foot, is caused by small tears in the ligament. If not addressed, these small tears can turn into larger tears, causing more pain and more problems. You may not realize that chiropractic care can be a solution for plantar fasciitis pain. Many Americans suffer from plantar fasciitis symptoms and many have found relief with chiropractic care.
What Causes Plantar Fasciitis?
There are many things that can cause plantar fasciitis. Too much improper form during exercise, suffering a fall, or injuring yourself can cause damage to the plantar fascia that leads to plantar fasciitis. Something as simple as wearing the wrong type of shoes on your feet, standing on your feet all day on a regular basis, or even other previous health conditions such as arthritis can cause plantar fasciitis. Once they begin, the symptoms can become painful and annoying fairly fast. It can be so painful that it even affects how you walk. Changing how you walk in an attempt to avoid plantar fasciitis pain can also be harmful to your body and overall health.
What Can Chiropractic Do for Plantar Fasciitis?
There are many benefits of chiropractic care for relieving plantar fasciitis pain, and Dr. Ronnie Bolar can help those suffering from this condition. For many, plantar fasciitis is due to stress on the plantar fascia tissue, which causes the tears initially. Addressing the stress on this ligament can help it heal and reduce inflammation. Chiropractic care from Lithia Springs chiropractor Dr. Bolar will reduce the stress on ligaments and muscles to offer relief. Additionally, the change in your gait because of plantar fasciitis pain often leads to spinal misalignments. These misalignments can cause other injuries to your back, neck, legs, knees, or other parts of the body. Chiropractic adjustments will remove these misalignments so that you can avoid potential secondary injuries. Regular adjustments from Dr. Bolar also ensure that the central nervous system is working as it should so that the body can communicate and you can experience high levels of health.
Others Have Found Relief and You Can Too
If you are wondering whether or not chiropractic really works, case studies have shown that chiropractic can be beneficial for those suffering from plantar fasciitis. One such case study focused on a 10-year-old boy who played football and experienced plantar fasciitis pain. He sought chiropractic care for his pain for 6 weeks. After the 6 weeks of chiropractic care, along with exercise and stretching therapy, his plantar fasciitis was resolved and he reported no other symptoms or pain.
