About 90 percent of people will recover from plantar fasciitis within a few months following conservative treatment.

Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common explanations of heel pain. It is caused by inflammation to the thick band that connects the toes to the heel bone, called the plantar fascia, which runs across the bottom of your foot. The condition is most commonly seen in runners, pregnant women, overweight people, and individuals who wear inadequately supporting shoes. Plantar fasciitis typically affects people between the ages of 40 and 70.

Symptoms
Plantar fasciitis commonly causes a stabbing pain in the heel of the foot, which is worse during the first few steps of the day after awakening. As you continue to walk on the affected foot, the pain gradually lessens. Usually, only one foot is affected, but it can occur in both feet simultaneously.

Diagnosis
To diagnose plantar fasciitis, your doctor will physically examine your foot by testing your reflexes, balance, coordination, muscle strength, and muscle tone. Your doctor may also advise a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or X-ray to rule out other others sources of your pain, such as a pinched nerve, stress fracture, or bone spur.

Treatment                                                                                                                                      There are many types of treatment that are used to combat plantar fasciitis, some of these include anti-inflammatory medications, injections, surgery, stretching, and orthotics. At Hometown Chiropractic we want to get you pain free without having to to use drugs or have surgery. We look at the joints of the foot to make sure it's functioning properly so we can avoid the stress you constantly put on your feet. Along with manipulation, we use techniques to release the tight fascia and muscles. Making sure you have a good home remedy to continue success is vital as well.

Home Remedies
Stretching your plantar fasciitis is something you can do at home to relieve pain and speed healing. Ice massage performed three to four times per day in 15 to 20 minute intervals is also something you can do to reduce inflammation and pain. Placing arch supports in your shoes absorbs shock and takes pressure off the plantar fascia.

We love him and like I said we have been to several chiropractors and my husband is really picky.
