What is Plantar Fasciitis?
Plantar fasciitis is a leading cause of heel pain in adults and is a common condition. It is caused by small tears in the ligament that runs the length of the bottom of the foot, the plantar fascia. If left untreated, the small tears can become larger. Plantar fasciitis is painful and uncomfortable, but it can be treated by chiropractic care.
How does it happen?
Plantar fasciitis has many causes, which include fall-related injuries or excessive exercise, as well as wearing shoes that offer improper support, arthritis, and standing for long periods of time. The pain caused by this condition can cause you to try to alleviate the pain by altering the way you walk, which can lead to other problems, which include other joints in the body becoming misaligned.
