How can Chiropractic Help with Plantar Fasciitis? Chiropractic physicians are trained to evaluate foot alignment and to adjust the bones of your ankle, foot and toes. Ask your chiropractor to look at your feet, your shoes, and how you stand, walk, and run. Even misalignment of the hips and knees can trigger or complicate the symptoms of plantar fasciitis. Your chiropractor can evaluate these areas of the bony structures as well.
Stretching your plantar fasciitis is something you can do at home to relieve pain and speed healing. Ice massage performed three to four times per day in 15 to 20 minute intervals is also something you can do to reduce inflammation and pain. Placing arch supports in your shoes absorbs shock and takes pressure off the plantar fascia. In addition to adding these home therapies to help resolve your condition and maximize your results from the chiropractic care, there are even natural supplements that can help reduce pain and inflammation while the body is healing.
