Does the pain get worse when getting out of bed in the morning ?
It could be plantar fasciitis.
The cause is believed to be either pronation or supination. A flat foot (hyperpronation) with forefoot abduction can cause stretching of the plantar fascia. A high arched foot (supinated) can cause the foot to be rigid.
Due to the foot not being able to absorb the weight bearing tension , shin splints may also occur.
How Can Health Wise Chiropractic Help?
Initially taping for support and orthotics can help. The Chiropractor may also give some stretches to help the plantar fascia.
Chiropractic adjustments to the navicular bone and the first metatarsal joint are usually beneficial in our patients to allow the plantar fascia to heal more effectively. Ultrasound therapy may also be applied.
