CAN OSTEOPATHY HELP PLANTAR FASCIITIS?

The condition of plantar fasciitis is a well-known hindrance and painful foot ailment.

It can be described as inflammation around the bottom of the foot or the arch of the heel, making simple everyday tasks difficult to endure comfortably.

Feet are the tools that keep us moving day-to-day. Whether that be walking, running, dancing, or high-level sports, the pain in this area can annoyingly interrupt an active lifestyle or promote a sedentary one. Hello, sofa and crisps…
Some people can manage this pain on their own by following simple exercise techniques or popping a couple of paracetamol doses. However, it's unfortunately common for it to reappear at inopportune times just when you think it's finally drifted away.

Luckily, that doesn't mean that it's a chronic condition, and treatment can certainly heal it.

However, there's no denying the inevitable interruption to your routine when it does emerge.

You may not think to seek an osteopath for a painful foot, but an osteopath can certainly help put you on a path to recovery and, most importantly, dig into any root causes.

HOW CAN OSTEOPATHS HELP WITH PLANTAR FASCIITIS?

Osteopaths help manage plantar fasciitis with a holistic approach.

We look at how the body connects and decipher any leading nuisances in connecting joints and muscles.

We can offer professional guidance and assistance so that you can get back on your feet again - literally.

Here are a few ways that an osteopath can help with plantar fasciitis pain:

  • Offer exercise rehab for athletes
    • If you're a serious athlete, plantar fasciitis is no doubt a prominent concern. Osteopaths guide the body as a whole and help heal this condition naturally, using various exercise techniques.
  • Heal the root cause of the issue
    • We offer hip-strengthening exercises and retraining support, as strain on the hip can be a direct culprit of foot conditions like plantar fasciitis.
  • Recommend orthotics
    • Orthotics can make a massive difference to foot pain, so we often recommend these to patients. We also send links to the best podiatrists in the city so that you can get the correct orthotics for your uniquely shaped foot.
  • Ankle and knee joint adjustments
    • Suppose this is a sister irritant to your plantar fasciitis fatigue. In that case, we provide ankle and knee joint adjustments to speed up healing.
  • Personalised tips and tricks
    • We work with our patients to create a customised plan, with techniques, exercises and lifestyle hacks, all suited to their unique schedules.

WHAT TO DO NOW ABOUT YOUR FOOT PAIN?

A significant number of things can cause plantar fasciitis, so finding out how and why it happened in the first place can be difficult. However, that doesn't mean you have to live with it for the rest of your days or brush it off as if it's nothing significant.

The right advice and the proper support can go a long way. So, it's time to dust off your dancing shoes and stop any unhealthy or inactive habits from perpetuating.
