Plantar fasciitis causes pain in the bottom of the heel. The plantar fascia is a thin, web-like ligament that connects your heel to the front of your foot. It supports the arch of your foot and helps you walk. The condition typically starts gradually with mild pain at the heel bone often referred to as a stone bruise. You’re more likely to feel it after (not during) exercise. The pain classically occurs right after getting up in the morning and after a period of sitting.
Plantar Fasciitis can be overlooked by most and usually does not cause someone to seek treatment until symptoms are severe. At Vida, this condition can be quickly resolved by utilizing our integrative approach. Our team can help release congestion in the fascia and reset the neurologic pathway decreasing the pain response. We would help to improve segmental joint mobility throughout the foot/ankle and with Massage Therapy we can help influence the muscle and connective tissue to move better. All of our services, working together, greatly decrease the rehabilitation time.
