Plantar Fasciitis Relief with our Joliet, IL Chiropractor
Sore feet are never welcome, even in an isolated instance -- but chronic foot pain can literally keep you off your feet and away from your work, household chores, and favorite recreational activities. You already know this if you're one of the many people who suffer from an inflammatory complaint called plantar fasciitis. Happily, you don't need surgery or drugs to overcome this uncomfortable problem. Here at New Chiropractic, we're proud to provide natural plantar fasciitis relief for Joliet IL and surrounding areas.
The Agony of Plantar Fasciitis: Causes and Symptoms
Plantar fasciitis is a soft tissue inflammation affecting the arches of the feet, those structures that help your feet absorb shock and keep your standing body balanced at all times. The largest of these arches, the median arch, is supported by a tough band of connective tissue called the plantar fascia. When abnormal stresses or tensions overwork this tissue, it can start to develop tiny tears, resulting in an ongoing state of inflammation. You can develop plantar fasciitis due to poor footwear support, obesity, a job that keeps you on your feet all day, or a sport that places your feet under constant strain. Even a slightly abnormal arch or a musculoskeletal misalignment can contribute to the condition.
There's no mistaking the special pain of plantar fasciitis -- because it greets you first thing every morning when you get out of bed. Plantar fasciitis is notorious for feeling worse after you've been off your feet for several hours. Once you start walking around, the pain may subside a bit. But it won't go away and stay away until you get treatment for it.
How Our Chiropractor Can Treat Your Plantar Fasciitis
Anew Chiropractic has the answers to your plantar fasciitis predicament. Our chiropractor, Dr. Rubis can perform a detailed evaluation of your symptoms, stance, gait, and spinal alignment to determine what's causing the condition. In many cases, spinal or extremity adjustments can normalize your physical balance and weight distribution, evening the pressure on your feet. Meanwhile, massage therapy can ease inflammation and promote tissue healing.
Orthotics is highly effective for people who suffer from plantar fascia due to congenital arch problems or other structural abnormalities. We take digital scans of your feet and then have customized orthotic insoles fabricated to provide just the right compensation and support.
