Fastest Ways to Find Relief from Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar Fasciitis is an inflammatory condition. Specifically, inflammation of the plantar fascia that runs along the bottom of the foot from your heel to your toes.

When it comes to decreasing inflammation, there are a few basic steps that you can use to treat most any area of the body. An acronym you can use to help remember those steps is…

PRICE.

To reduce pain and increase function, you’ll want to Protect, Rest, Ice, Compress, and Elevate the affected parts of your body.

These simple steps can help you on your way to finding relief from Plantar Fasciitis pain. However, those are just the first steps.

There are many other conservative care options you can utilize to better treat your inflammation and optimize the healing process overall.

Why it Matters: Exploring next level avenues of care to help optimize your body’s healing does two things.

First, it helps ensure that any additional underlying problems are also being addressed.

Second, such treatments can help prepare your body to better handle stress and pressure from outside sources.

Here are some of the primary conservative care options we recommend:

  • Chiropractic Care: Chiropractic care is focused on identifying and correcting imbalances in the body to reduce pain and improve functional health, and adjustments can be used to treat the problematic gates and compensation patterns characteristic of Plantar Fasciitis.
  • Intrinsic Foot Exercises: The intrinsic muscles in your feet are essential for arch support, and research indicates that toe raises, toe fanning, and medial arch exercises are extremely important to maintaining the structural integrity of our feet.
  • Soft Tissue Mobilization (STM): Practitioners are trained in various ways of breaking up the micro adhesions and tension associated with Plantar Fasciitis, and research has shown that STM is one of the most effective treatment options.
  • Calf Muscle Stretches: Lengthening tight calf muscles through stretching has been shown to play a significant role in the treatment of Plantar Fasciitis, and this may be because stretching can help decrease cyclical, repetitive pressure on the plantar fascia.

You can find relief from Plantar Fasciitis with conservative care. Many common foot injuries can be repaired naturally. In fact, we’ve helped hundreds of people find relief from Plantar Fasciitis right here.

When I showed up I had terrible posture, shoulder pain, depression, anxiety, burning headaches uo the back of my head, and problems sleeping.. after my first adjustment almost all of my symptoms were gone after consistent care I feel 100% better. All of the mentioned symptoms haven't returned. My 9 year old son lats in bed for hours before falling asleep, since his adjustment hes asleep within 15 nib. Also my 8 year old son has been having a wet bed for a year straight I took him in and he was adjusted after only 1 adjustment he was dry for 13 days straight then had 4 nights of wet cause his lumber was back out of place. We made an apt again and sure enough hes been dry 2 days again. I am convinced weekly visits for him until his muscles adjust to holding it into place is perfect. Dr. Tim is my hero.

I treated with Dr Tim following an auto accident and he was awesome! I told him I feel "a million percent better" after being treated in his office for lower back pain, sciatica and hip pain. I saw a pain specialist and went to physical therapy, neither provided relief. I saw Dr Tim and started getting immediate results. My 82 year old dad was in the same accident and also treated with Dr. Tim. He is now pain-free following his treatments! Elana in the front office is so nice - the whole office atmosphere is relaxed and everyone is so friendly. I highly recommend Dr. Tim and Dr. Jeni.
