What is a plantar fascia strain?

Plantar fascia strain is a type of common musculoskeletal injury that occurs when the thick, fibrous band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot (known as the plantar fascia) becomes torn or strained. This type of strain often affects people who are middle-aged and older, those who are overweight, and athletes who put excessive stress on their feet while participating in sports such as running, tennis, dancing, and basketball.

What are the symptoms of a plantar fascia strain?

Straining of the plantar fascia is a relatively common occurrence that can lead to considerable pain in the foot and heel. The most common symptom associated with this injury is sharp pain on the underside of the heel that may radiate outward along the arch of the foot or up into the Achilles tendon. Individuals may also experience swelling or tenderness in the area, particularly when standing and putting pressure on their feet. Additionally, those suffering from a strain may find that walking or running becomes difficult due to increased discomfort or limited range of motion while attempting to move their feet.

What are the treatments for a plantar fascia strain?

When it comes to treating a Plantar fascia strain, chiropractic care is usually seen as the first line of defense. Adjustments to the foot and ankle can help restore normal alignment and reduce the tension on the plantar fascia. Additionally, chiropractors can provide exercises designed to strengthen the supporting muscles in the foot and leg as well as stretches specifically targeting the plantar region. Physiotherapy is also an effective treatment option as they often use ultrasound therapy, along with stretching, strengthening exercises and massage therapy to encourage circulation and reduce inflammation around the area of injury.
