Signs of Plantar Fasciitis and Treatment in Broomfield
Having pain in your heel can be a sign of a condition known as plantar fasciitis. If this pain gets severe or occurs frequently, it can make it harder to walk without experiencing discomfort. This can cause you to avoid participating in sports or affect how you do everyday tasks. At Lifetime Health and Wellness in Broomfield, we offer treatment for plantar fasciitis.
Symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis
When you have plantar fasciitis, you might feel a sharp, stabbing ache in the bottom of the affected foot close to your heel. This pain might be more severe when you first stand and walk around in the morning. It might also get worse after you exercise or when you stand up after sitting for a long time.
Causes of Plantar Fasciitis
Plantar fasciitis occurs when the plantar fascia band in the bottom of your foot becomes inflamed. This band usually provides the arch of your foot with support and absorbs shock as you walk around. Inflammation can develop if the fascia ends up with small tears over time. Your risk of having this happen is higher if you are overweight, over the age of 40 or do exercises that put stress on your heel, such as running. Being flat-footed or working on your feet all day also increase the risk of plantar fasciitis.

Chiropractic care for plantar fasciitis in Westminster involves helping you in ways that can alleviate pain and other symptoms. While this will not directly treat this condition, it can correct some of the factors that contribute to it. Chiropractic adjustments can improve your posture and balance the amount of weight that you are placing on each foot for plantar fasciitis relief. Improving your posture helps prevent you from putting too much strain on the affected foot, which reduces pain.
