Feet are one of the most common areas of complaint in our society. It does not come as a surprise either; no other structure takes the load of the entire body as often. The amount of forces exerted on your feet as you perform normal activities can be staggering. For example, a runner can exert up to seven times his own body weight on his feet with every stride. That would mean an athlete that weighs 195 pounds would exert 1,365 pounds of pressure on his feet with every step he takes. With such force exerted on the lower legs, it is no wonder that foot injuries are common.
Chiropractic care is an extremely useful solution for foot issues such as plantar fasciitis. Chiropractic care for such complaints involves adjustments of toes, ankles, and spinal alignment. This can be integral in reducing tension in the plantar fascia; promoting healing; providing effective pain management; and reducing the chance of additional injury.
Chiropractic also complements other therapies for the problem. Those who suffer from foot pain can use chiropractic together with physical therapy, therapeutic massage, and even shots to control the pain and take care of the condition. Additionally, it may help with speeding recovery and assisting in improved mobility.
So glad to have found this place. My daughter is an upper level gymnast and does plenty of pounding to her body. She had a bad foot injury, and I am fully convinced that because of Dr. Mahoney’s and Dr. Painter’s help she was back doing what she loves with all her muscles firing properly faster and feeling better than before her injury. Wish we would have found them years sooner. Do your body a favor try them out. You will be glad you did.
