Symptoms associated with plantar fasciitis varies from person to person, but is most often associated with chronic pain in the heel. Pain in the heel and foot is often experienced by simply taking a step, but can also be present after sitting for extended periods of time. Other symptoms include:
Plantar fasciitis can sometimes be mistaken for other conditions that have similar symptoms. It is important that Dr. Curtis perform an examination to properly diagnose plantar fasciitis determine its cause, and recommend appropriate treatment options.
The Wellness Studio treats plantar fasciitis by addressing the root cause to correct it naturally. Once Dr. Curtis diagnoses the source of the pain (which may or may not be located in the foot), he will rely on several drug-free, non surgical approaches available for resolving the pain.
Dr. Curtis may perform extremity adjustments on the foot and ankle to readjust small bones in the feet to relieve symptoms. Manipulating the bones in the foot may enable more mobility between the layers of skin, fat, fascia, and muscle. Through the correction of the structural issues in your feet, Dr. Curtis’s treatment will likely prevent future pain and injury. Exercises and stretches can also aid in healing and improving movement.
