Treatments for Plantar Fasciitis Pain Relief
Let's be honest - we are on our feet a lot! And as a result of daily use, poor
footwear and less-than-optimum surface conditions, our feet can hurt!
Oftentimes, the plantar fascia, the band of tissue and ligaments on the sole of our
feet, can become thickened and inflamed or swollen. This can translate to pain
anywhere along the course of the tissue, including the lower calf, heel, sole and
toes. Frequently, the discomfort is most noticeable in the morning, or in any
situation upon which pressure is placed on the feet after a longer period of
inactivity. Discomfort may also increase with long periods of standing, increased
physical activity and ascending the stairs.
Adjustments to the foot and/or ankle may be utilized in conjunction with sof
t tissue treatments such as Active Release Technique®, electrical modalities or
Kinesiotaping. Acupuncture may also be advised as it is often successful in
decreasing inflammation/edema and decreasing prevalence of trigger points in
the related muscles, as well as significantly improving pain levels.
