Plantar Fasciitis Relief in Stillwater MN

Chiropractic Stillwater MN Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis in Stillwater MN is the inflammation of the thick tissue on the bottom of the foot, which is called the plantar fascia. It connects the heel bone to the toes and creates the foot arch. People who work on their feet all day are generally more susceptible.


Understanding Plantar Fasciitis In Stillwater MN

The likelihood of developing this condition increases between the ages of 40 to 70. Someone suffering from plantar fasciitis may experience stabbing pain in the heel, and it generally is worse first thing in the morning with the first few steps of the day. The pain often reduces with continued walking, and it is not common to experience planar fasciitis in both feet simultaneously. If left untreated, a heel spur may occur.

To make a proper diagnosis of plantar fasciitis, an exam must be performed. During the exam, your foot will be tested by performing reflexes, testing muscle strength and tone, as well as coordination and balance. A structural evaluation will also be performed to check the knees, hips, and pelvis. If there is poor weight distribution or improper gait (walking pattern), then that may have caused the plantar fasciitis. To rule out any other possible causes, such as a heel spur, fracture, or subluxation, an x-ray may be taken.


2 Types Of Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis breaks down into 2 distinct types:

  • Mild
  • Severe

Those with mild Plantar Fasciitis will find relief with basic changes such as stretching, icing, orthotics, etc. Severe Plantar Fasciitis is a different animal altogether.


Severe Plantar Fasciitis - What To Do...

‚ÄčThe patients we typically see with Plantar Fasciitis suffer from the severe type and haven't found relief from any of the above-mentioned treatments. Even cortisone shots typically do not help these. The solution we've found is a combination treatment including ankle joint mobilization and Laser Therapy to the Plantar Fascia.

Laser therapy provides effective relief by decreasing pain and inflammation and stimulating the healing process. So you feel better faster!
