Plantar Fasciitis Symptoms

Heel Pain: The Unwelcome Morning Ritual Imagine waking up to a new day, only to be greeted by a sharp jolt of pain with every step.

Plantar Fasciitis Treatments

The pain of plantar fasciitis can feel overwhelming, affecting your daily life and mobility. But fear not – our comprehensive treatments are intended to address the underlying cause and offer long-term ease.

Targeted Myofascial Release

Our experts incorporate targeted myofascial release techniques to address muscle tightness and imbalances contributing to plantar fasciitis. This therapeutic approach helps enhance flexibility and alleviate tension in the affected area, promoting overall healing.

Strength-Building Exercises

Muscle weakness could intensify the illness. Our experts provide exercises that strengthen the muscles supporting your feet, ankles, and lower legs.  Building strength is a crucial component of holistically curing plantar fasciitis.

Footwear Adjustments

Your shoes may be part of the problem. Ill-fitting footwear can worsen plantar fasciitis. Our specialists will guide you in choosing the right shoes, considering arch support, cushioning, and overall comfort to ensure your feet are well-supported.

Supportive Arch Devices (Orthotics)

Sometimes, your feet need extra support. It’s when plantar fasciitis is not under as much stress and will recover more quickly with the help and alignment that custom orthotics may offer.

Night Splints

One typical complaint of plantar fasciitis patients is morning soreness. Night splints keep your foot in a dorsiflexed position while you sleep, relieving plantar fasciitis from tightening overnight and reducing pain during those first steps in the morning.

The Power of Shockwave Therapy for Plantar Fasciitis

Another innovative and highly effective treatment for Plantar Fasciitis relief is shockwave therapy:

Minimal Downtime: Typically well-tolerated with minimal discomfort.

Dr. Eymann identified and started to solve problems that no other chiropractor had ever mentioned to me before….and I’m 50 and have been to a lot of chiros. He started his career as a massage therapist long ago which gives him a much better ability to troubleshoot complex muscle/joint imbalances than a chiro that just cracks and moves on. Strongly recommended.
