Pain in FootPlantar Fasciitis Overland Park

Your feet are amazingly intricate structures. Each contains 28 bones, 30 joints and over 100 tendons, muscles and ligaments. Together, they provide the balance and support the rest of your body needs to function. This strong foundation, however, is prone to injury.

One of the most common issues in the feet is plantar fasciitis, which involves the inflammation of the tissue that runs from the bottom of the foot to connect the toes with your heel bone, called the plantar fascia. The most common symptom of plantar fasciitis is an intense stabbing pain in the heel, often affecting runners, tennis players and other athletes.

Balancing Your Muscles

At Body Basics Chiropractic, the key to starting your healing is loosening the calf muscles, stretching them out with techniques like Active Release Techniques®. Then, the joints at the bottom of your feet can become more flexible with methods like Graston Technique. Once you’ve healed (which usually takes a total of 4-8 visits, though you’ll likely see progress in just a few), we’ll teach you exercises that can strengthen you and ensure your problem doesn’t return, which you can do for 2-6 weeks afterward.
