With the hot weather and summer upon us most people have turned in their tennis shoes and work boots for flip flops and sandals... only to find pain occurring on the bottom of their feet. Plantar Fasciitis is common when arch support is removed from our feet or for those who stand for long periods of time.
To treat plantar fasciitis a strict regiment of stretching and icing is recommended. In addition, chiropractors can assist the healing and recovery of plantar fasciitis by adjusting the calcaleus (heel bone), performing soft tissue and stretching techniques and using therapeutic ultrasound. Finding a shoe that is properly designed for your foot shape and arch type is critical. For help with a foot evaluation and shoe selection please see specialists at The Foot Store in Mt. Pleasant!
