Chiropractic Towson MD Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis and the pain that comes along with it can be a huge disruption to your life, especially when you consider that we take 3,000-4,000 steps per day while doing our routine tasks. If you’re an athlete or exercise regularly, you’re taking significantly more steps than that and plantar fasciitis can cause pain every time your foot hits the ground.

Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain and it affects millions of Americans each year. We know that when you wake up in the morning and get out of bed, the last thing you want is to have deep, intense heel pain. If you’re experiencing plantar fasciitis pain you may not think to visit a chiropractor but we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how we can treat plantar fasciitis quickly.


What Is Plantar Fasciitis?

Plantar fasciitis is caused when the ligament that connects your toes to your heel (the plantar fascia) becomes inflamed, swollen, and weak. When this happens, you’ll experience pain in the bottom of your foot or heel when you walk or stand, especially when you first wake up or after sitting for a prolonged period of time. 

Plantar fasciitis pain typically feels like a deep, sharp, stabbing pain in the heel area. Some people describe their plantar fasciitis pain as an ache or like their arch is bruised. For almost all people with plantar fasciitis, the pain improves when they start walking around.

I absolutely LOVE coming here. I have been having major lower right back pain, knee pain, and plantar fascia pain. The doctors and the entire staff are SOOOO helpful and friendly. It's really like a family atmosphere. They make an effort to get to know you personally. My pain has eased up over the past three weeks since I've been a patient. 


Causes Of Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis has a wide range of causes because the plantar fascia ligaments endure a lot of wear and tear on a daily basis. Some of the most common causes and contributing factors include…

  • Doing a lot of running or high-impact sports that involve repetitive pounding of the foot
  • Increased exercise intensity of frequency
  • Lack of arch support
  • A sudden injury, especially when jumping
  • Standing for long periods of time, especially on hard surfaces
  • Being overweight
  • Being older (our plantar fascia lose elasticity with age)
  • Poor flexibility in the calf muscle
  • Wearing shoes that don’t have enough cushioning or arch support
  • Wearing shoes that don’t bend enough at the ball of the foot

Plantar fasciitis is very prevalent and can be incredibly disrupting, but it’s also very treatable.
