Our Chiropractor Provides Foot Pain Relief Treatment
Your feet each contain 26 bones, connected by a host of joints, ligaments and tendons—a very complex and flexible part of the anatomy that moves you, bears all of your weight, and is therefore prone to injury. Sudden injuries (sprains and strains) and long-term stress injuries (plantar fasciitis and tendonitis can develop from the two most common forms of foot imbalance:
- Pronation—The feet roll inward too much because you have low or flat arches ("flat feet"); can contribute to cases of plantar fasciitis and heel spurs.
- Supination—Your feet roll outward too much; can also contribute to ankle and knee pain
Both of these imbalances can cause a bad chain reaction spreading from your feet, all the way through your ankles, knees, hips and back. In addition, other poor posture habits and being overweight can also cause foot problems.
Our chiropractor can help balance your step and correct pronation, supination and flat arches with custom orthotics and chiropractic care to provide relief for conditions like plantar fasciitis, ankle pain, etc.
