Osteopathy Can Help with Plantar Fasciitis

news Jun 15, 2022

Plantar fasciitis is a common condition and the principal cause of adult heel pain. If you have plantar fasciitis, this means the ligament running the length of your foot’s bottom, the plantar fascia, has several tiny tears inside it. If not treated, these tiny tears will inevitably lead to a bigger tear. It can be causing you a lot of pain and discomfort until then. Don’t worry, because Osteopathic care will help treat you if you’re one of the millions of us who suffer from plantar fasciitis.

Much can cause plantar fasciitis, including damage from falling or extreme exercise. Wearing the wrong kind of shoes that don’t provide enough support, standing up for long periods of time or arthritis can cause this condition too. When pain in your foot from this condition rears its ugly head, you can start compensating in the way you walk to reduce pain, but that can lead to other issues such as misalignments in other joints in your body.

Osteopathic Care Helps

There are many treatment options available for plantar fasciitis but when it comes to treating this disorder you may want to consider the several benefits of Osteopathic care, including shock wave treatment.

Treatment by Osteopaths may:

Reduce stress in the ligament – The stress placed on the ligament causing the tiny tears is the reason you are suffering from plantar fasciitis. If you do not take steps to reduce this stress, then pain and inflammation will continue to occur. Osteopaths can help remove some of the stress from the ligament and give it an opportunity to heal through adjustments.

Minimise secondary injuries – Remember one of the things that can happen when you are suffering from this condition is a change in your gait to try to reduce the pain you experience. Using Osteopathic care as part of your treatment plan will help minimise the misalignments caused by a change in your gait – misalignments that can cause problems in other parts of your body, like your feet, elbows, hips and lower back, if left untreated.

Osteopathy is a natural and non-invasive treatment, it often works well for this condition in conjunction with other treatments, such as massage or physical treatment.
