The feet contain dozens of bones, ligaments, tendons and other structures. Damage to any of these delicate parts of the foot can cause pain. Some of the most common causes of foot pain include:
People who are overweight or obese are more likely to experience pain as a result of the excess pressure placed on their feet throughout the day.
The chiropractor will evaluate the patient’s posture and inquire about his or her physical symptoms. The doctor will also compare the person’s postural alignment with a model of ideal alignment. Each patient’s posture and physical mobility will be surveyed and links to any discomfort will be addressed. Using this information, the chiropractor will design a personalized exercise and manual manipulation program created to correct the patient’s specific issues. The chiropractor may suggest wearing custom orthotics or treatments to the knees, hips, and spine that may be aggravating the foot pain. The feet provide a person’s foundation and need to be cared for to ensure that the rest of the body stays in correct alignment. If you’re suffering from foot pain, make an appointment at Quality Chiropractic for evaluation and treatment.
Chiropractors can help relieve the pain and stiffness of plantar fasciitis by optimizing the neural pathways in the feet, heels and ankles, as well as improving circulation that is necessary to heal tissues that have become damaged due to persistent inflammation or constant pressure. Plus, chiropractic techniques are also aimed at reducing inflammation and swelling which can also compromise healing. Deep tissue manipulation and therapeutic massage can be used directly at the site of pain and inflammation to promote optimal healing for both immediate and long-term improvements.
