Plantar Fasciitis Treatment
Luckily for the people who suffer with Plantar Fasciitis, there are a range of different treatment options to help you manage this condition. Each of these therapies is different and will be suited to different people, or perhaps a combination of them will be required for effective management. Our team of experts at Plantar Fasciitis Relief always provide our clients with a thorough assessment to determine what treatment method will be best suited to them and provide them with recovery as soon as possible. Here we outline the common forms of therapy and how they can help with relief.
Physiotherapy is a common form of treatment for Plantar Fasciitis as it works with the muscles within the foot and aims to release the tightness of the fascia. Our highly trained and experienced physiotherapist provides detailed assessments on our clients to understand where they are experiencing the pain and the source of it. From there they work to provide our clients with a range of stretches and strengthening exercises, which will help to rectify the patterns the muscles have formed which are creating the cause of the pain within the foot.
If the cause of the pain within our clients feet is caused by issues relating to the stiffness of the joints within the foot, chiropractic manipulation may be the best corrective measure to provide relief for our clients. We have chiropractors whose expertise lies in the joins within the foot and the ways in which to help get more fluidity through these joints. Releasing the stress and pressure that has built up within the joints of the foot may help to release the fascia and muscle patterns that have formed due to the incorrect alignment of the bones within the foot.
One of the common causes of Plantar Fasciitis is the way that our foot sits when we are completing daily tasks such as walking. If we have formed bad patterns in our walking, this will result in tension, pressure build up and stress within our foot, often resulting in the condition of Plantar Fasciitis. To help rectify the bad habits our clients have formed while walking, we may recommend orthotic inserts within their shoes to help correct the position of their foot whilst going about their daily activities. This will also help to rectify any referred pain caused by muscles attached to the foot.
In extreme cases, surgery may be required to rectify the excruciating pain caused by Plantar Fasciitis. Our team at Plantar Fasciitis Relief see this as a last resort and only if other therapy options do not work, or are unlikely to work due to any damage that has occurred within the clients foot. By surgically correcting the foot our clients may find relief, however it is important to weigh up the time that the recovery will take as well as the chances of having a successful outcome from noninvasive therapy options.
