Plantar Fasciitis

Managing Plantar Fasciitis Through Chiropractic Care

Heel pain from plantar fasciitis can significantly hinder your daily life, impacting everything from your morning walk to your favorite workout. While you can often treat plantar fasciitis with rest, ice, and over-the-counter pain medication, these methods typically provide only temporary relief. Fortunately, chiropractic care from Mael Chiropractic in Allston, MA, can offer a more comprehensive approach to managing this condition and promoting long-term healing. Continue reading to learn more about plantar fasciitis and how our chiropractic care can help manage it.


What Is Plantar Fasciitis?

The plantar fascia stretches and supports the arch of your foot, enabling you to walk, run, and jump. Plantar fasciitis occurs when overuse, tight muscles, improper footwear, or standing for extended periods strains and inflames this band. The most frequent symptom of plantar fasciitis is a stabbing pain in the heel that worsens when taking the first steps after rest or periods of inactivity. You may also experience swelling around your heel and a tight Achilles tendon.

Chiropractic Adjustments for Pain Relief

Chiropractic adjustments focus on the musculoskeletal system and aim to restore proper alignment and joint function. In the case of plantar fasciitis, your chiropractor may carefully adjust the foot, ankle, and lower back to address misalignments contributing to the inflammation. These adjustments can alleviate pain and promote healing by improving joint mobility and reducing tension.

Therapeutic Exercise and Lifestyle Advice

While adjustments are a cornerstone of our approach, we understand that lasting relief requires a multi-pronged strategy. Our team goes beyond adjustments to incorporate therapeutic exercises and lifestyle modifications into your treatment plan.

We will teach you specific stretches and exercises designed to strengthen the plantar fascia and improve flexibility in your feet and ankles. These exercises can help reduce inflammation, prevent future flare-ups, and improve your overall foot health.

Additionally, our chiropractors will provide valuable lifestyle advice to support your recovery. This advice may include recommendations for proper footwear, activity modification, and weight management strategies. We can further optimize your chances of achieving long-term pain relief by addressing all contributing factors.

Dr. Mael is wonderful! I have had chronic back pain since I can remember and I've never felt so comfortable since. He's a great person and professional, and his schedule is quite flexible. The location and atmosphere are great!
