Chiropractic Is an Effective Treatment of Plantar Fasciitis

You may be surprised to learn that chiropractic can help those who suffer from the common foot pain known as plantar fasciitis. This disease is most common in adults over the age of 40 but can strike at almost any age.

Some Facts About Plantar Fasciitis:

  • Plantar fasciitis, also known as “heel pain syndrome” or “policeman’s heel”, results from a gradual degeneration of the plantar fascia or sudden trauma to the area.
  • Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of chronic pain beneath the heel in adults.
  • It is estimated that 1 in 10 people will develop plantar fasciitis during their lifetime.
  • Research suggests that chiropractic, in combination with adjunct therapies like stretching, laser, and orthotics, is effective in the treatment of plantar fasciitis.
