There are many causes of plantar fascia strains

The most common causes of a plantar fascia straing include inadequate stretching, improper footwear, and sudden increases in physical activity. Going beyond simple rest and ice/heat treatments, chiropractic adjustments, physiotherapy exercises, and massage therapy have been found to be highly effective treatments for plantar fasciitis. Consistent chiropractic care can help correct misalignments that lead to plantar fasciitis strain, while physiotherapy helps strengthen weakened muscles. Massage therapy adds relief by decreasing tension built up in affected areas and improving flexibility.

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.

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.

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.

I cannot recommend Dr. Shannon Webster and Dr. Michael Torreiter enough. Both are super friendly and understanding and it has been an absolute pleasure to have met them and been treated by them.

I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Webster for a few months and I've been feeling much better. I had sever knee, shoulder and back pain. I couldn't squat or do push ups without my joints screaming at me. But now I'm not able to only do all those but also feel stronger. The most important piece is that she listened and took my history of many injuries into consideration. And as a dancer, I couldn't have asked for a better chiropractor who not only helped me feel better but also understood my needs.

I also brought my grandmother to Dr. Torreiter for her back pain for acupuncture. He was extremely kind, understanding, compassionate and everything that I could ask for. He made her feel comfortable and explained every step during each treatment. He made sure that she was well taken care of and also made other important referrals that lead to her recovery.

So far I have referred my whole family to these two wonderful individuals and everyone's experience has been equally great. Thanks to them we all are doing much better!
