Plantar fasciitis is an umbrella term for any pain in the bottom of the foot. Typically, heel pain is at its worst when patients are getting out of bed in the morning or after prolonged sitting.
Effective plantar fasciitis treatment depends on identifying the specific cause of your foot paint and treating it effectively. The most common cause of plantar fasciitis is an inflamed flexor tendon (either the common tendon of the short flexors, or the broad, flat, long flexor tendon).
For effective plantar fasciitis treatment we use a combination of modalities, including Trigger Point Therapy, Active Release Technique, Chirometrix, Fascial Manipulation, Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP) and The Pettibon System, along with specific stretches.
Sometimes foot pain is caused by an irritation of the plantar nerve requiring an analysis of the entire length of the sciatic nerve and its branches to look for adhesions that can limit the normal glide that all nerves must have.
