Plantar Fasciitis in Batavia

Chiropractic Batavia IL Woman Foot Pain

Do you feel a stabbing pain in your heel when you take your first few steps in the morning? You may have plantar fasciitis. In some cases, plantar fasciitis can cause significant pain in the sole of your foot when you first get up in the morning, rise after sitting for a long time, or when you stand for a while. Fortunately, our chiropractor in Batavia can diagnose and treat plantar fasciitis to get you back on your feet again.


What is Plantar fasciitis in Batavia

Plantar fasciitis is an overuse injury that affects the fascia, which is a tough band of connective tissue that anchors your heel bone to your toes. The symptoms of plantar fasciitis occur when overuse causes inflammation in the fascia tissue.

Some people are more likely to develop plantar fasciitis than are others. Females, those who are overweight, and people with jobs that require a lot of walking or standing on hard surfaces have an increased risk for this type of overuse injury. You might be at higher risk if you walk or run for exercise, particularly if you have tight calf muscles that restrict how far you can flex your ankles. Those with very high arches or extremely flat feet are more prone to develop plantar fasciitis.

The symptoms of plantar fasciitis usually include pain on the bottom of the foot, near the heel, right after getting up in the morning, or after a period of sitting. The symptoms usually start gradually, beginning with mild pain at the heel bone. Doctors refer to this sensation as a “stone bruise.” You are more likely to feel it after exercise rather than during physical activity.

Left untreated, plantar fasciitis may become a chronic condition. The pain of plantar fasciitis may prevent you from engaging in your daily activities. You may even develop foot, knee, hip, and back problems because plantar fasciitis can actually change the way you walk.


Treatment for Plantar Fasciitis

Our Batavia, IL chiropractor provides treatment for plantar fasciitis that can include ultrasound therapy that uses ultra-high frequency sound waves to increase blood flow, relax muscle spasms, and promote healing in inflamed fasciitis tissue. Massage therapy reduces inflammation, speeds healing, and feels fantastic on sore feet. Electric stimulation, like that produced by Electro-Muscle Stimulation and Interferential Electro-Therapy, can alleviate inflammation associated with plantar fasciitis.

Stretching is one of the best treatments for plantar fasciitis. Our chiropractor in Batavia will teach you how to safely and effectively stretch the muscles in your thighs, calves, and feet to reduce your risk for plantar fasciitis.
