Is plantar fasciitis keeping you off your feet? Dr. Don Haygood and the team at Essential Wellness of Burleson in Burleson, TX, offer effective, personalized care to help you find relief.

Treating Plantar Fasciitis Through Chiropractic Care

Chiropractors don’t just treat neck and back pain. They treat pain all the way down to your feet. One of the top causes of foot pain is plantar fasciitis, which can be a very debilitating issue. Fortunately, chiropractors like Dr. Haygood at Essential Wellness of Burleson in Burleson, TX, can provide relief from the symptoms. Learn more below.

The Basics of Plantar Fasciitis

If you feel along the bottom of your foot while pulling your toes toward your body, you can feel a flat but thick band of tissue. This tissue is called the plantar fascia. It connects your heel bone to your toes and provides support along the arches.

Sometimes, the plantar fascia develops tears due to overextension, excessive pressure, or overuse due to factors such as:

  • Wearing shoes that don’t provide proper arch support
  • Structural issues of the foot
  • Being overly active, such as if you run constantly or work on your feet
  • Being overweight
  • Misalignment anywhere in the musculoskeletal system that impacts how weight is distributed on your feet

When factors such as these impact the plantar fascia, it can lead to symptoms such as:

  • Stabbing pain in the heel or bottom of the feet
  • Burning sensations
  • Swelling
  • Stiffness

For many people, standing up and trying to walk can be painful. The symptoms might decrease after walking around for a few minutes, but they typically come back after sitting or standing still for long periods.

How a Chiropractor Can Help

Chiropractors can play an integral role in your healing and relief, beginning with restoring proper alignment to the entire skeletal system. This can help ensure that weight is distributed evenly, which helps relieve undue pressure on the plantar fascia.

Chiropractic also includes soft tissue treatments, such as therapeutic massage, therapeutic ultrasound, and more. These techniques help relieve tension, reduce inflammation, stimulate healing, and restore range of motion.

Therapeutic exercises can be beneficial for stretching the plantar fascia. Your chiropractor can also recommend supportive shoes and custom orthotics to further relieve pressure on the feet. Additionally, they can work with you on lifestyle changes, including resting, weight loss, and more, to address the factors that have contributed to your pain.

Don’t just suffer from the pain of plantar fasciitis. Find relief in the hands of Dr. Haygood at Essential Wellness of Burleson in Burleson, TX, by calling (817) 371-2551 to schedule an appointment.
