Foot Pain/Plantar Fasciitis
At Lynch Chiropractic Center, we take great pride in being your go-to chiropractor for foot pain treatment in Lexington. If you've recently been experiencing unexplained foot pain, then it's time to schedule an appointment with our experienced chiropractor, Dr. Kevin Lynch. For more than 30 years, he has been helping patients suffering from foot pain find relief from their symptoms. We have found in our office that one of the most common causes of foot and heel pain is a condition known as plantar fasciitis.
Specifically, plantar fasciitis is a condition that occurs when the large ligament that runs from the toes to the heel of the foot (known as the plantar fascia) becomes inflamed. The majority of people who suffer from plantar fasciitis are over the age of 40, though it can occur to nearly anybody. Some of the common risk factors associated with this condition include being overweight, spending a lot of time on foot, being a runner, and being a pregnant woman. This condition can affect just one foot or it can be present in both feet at the same time.
The most notable symptom of plantar fasciitis is a sharp, stabbing pain that runs throughout the heel of the foot. Usually, patients report that this pain is at its worst during the early parts of the day and begins to get better as the day wore on.
Our plantar fasciitis chiropractor will begin with a thorough evaluation to accurately diagnose your foot and heel pain. This may include an X-ray as well as a physical examination to check for inflammation. The good news is that if you are diagnosed with plantar fasciitis, chiropractic care may be able to help. Not only is chiropractic care safe and non-invasive, but it also focuses on relieving your pain at is the source rather than just covering it up with prescription painkillers and other "treatments."
There are many chiropractic techniques and methods that can be used to treat your plantar fasciitis. For starters, we may recommend a treatment known as active release technique (ART), which focuses on promoting the body's own natural healing processes on damaged tissues and ligaments. This manual treatment is performed by our chiropractor right here in our office and may be recommended for several sessions for you to get the best results. We may also recommend some therapeutic exercises, which you can perform at home, to help improve your range of motion and help prevent plantar fasciitis symptoms and other foot pain from returning.
