Quick Take: Plantar Fasciitis & Chiropractic
Did you know that the average person takes around 8,000 steps per day?
Knowing this makes it easy to see how 75% of Americans will complain of foot pain at some point in their lives.
Plantar fasciitis is a common type of foot pain that responds very well to chiropractic.
The adjustments we can make to the heel and foot take the pressure off of the plantar fascia, allowing it to relax.
One research article discussed how one woman found relief from her heel pain with chiropractic, after not having any success with orthotics, stretching, and ibuprofen.*
Some common phrases that you may hear are:
“My feet are killing me today!” or “I can’t even wear my favorite high heels anymore!”
You might see someone rubbing their feet during lunch or limping in pain after they stand up from sitting at their desk.
Please suggest to them that we may be able to help them deal with their foot pain or plantar fasciitis through gentle chiropractic adjustments.
