Experiencing foot pain or heel pain when standing?
Plantar Fasciitis is an inflammatory process and is one of the most common causes of foot and heel pain. People who do a lot of standing and are on their feet could be suffering from Plantar Fasciitis.
Symptoms with Plantar Fasciitis Include
- Pain or Stiffness in the foot when you put initial steps in the morning
- Pain after standing for long periods of time
- Pain after activity or climbing stairs
- Pain that worsens as the day goes on
- Pain that feels like a deep bruise in your heal
Plantar Fascia is a ligament that is located along the bottom of the foot from the heel to the toes and supports your arch. The most common location of pain is right at the heel. It’s often described it as a stabbing pain but because this condition comes on gradually, it can be described as a tight feeling or dull ache.
How can I find out if I might have Plantar Fasciitis?
Since it is a musculoskeletal condition, Doctor of Chiropractic specialize in not only diagnosing these types of conditions, but also treating them. A diagnosis of Plantar Fasciitis can usually be made from reviewing your medical history and performing a clinical examination.
X-rays may be taken as well and sometimes doctors will see an incidental finding called a heel spur. Heel spurs form when the plantar fascia is chronically tight and extra bone is laid down in response.
