Plantar fasciitis is manifested by experiencing a pain in the bottom of the foot which can become extremely painful particularly if you have to stay on your feet all day long. This condition gives great chronic discomfort, but the good thing about it is that it can be treated without any surgery.
What is Plantar Fasciitis?
It is a common condition for runners, athletes or overweight people as all these categories of people put a more stress on their feet.
People who have experienced this condition state that it is highly painful, and that the severe pain is similar to a stabbing pain which starts from the morning. This pain appears when the plantar fascia (the tissue that connects the heel to the toes) becomes inflamed.
So, if you recognized your pain in this post, then we advise you to seek for an advice from your own doctor as it can be efficiently treated.
In the video below, the well-known Dr. Donald DeFabio will give an explanation how he diagnoses this condition and as well as explains how he treats it in his patients. Furthermore, he will give you some valuable chiropractic advice on the proper home treatment.
In order for this condition to be treated successfully, a proper diagnosis needs to be established as that is the root of every successful treatment. After that, Dr. DeFabio uses an interdisciplinary approach where he manages to lower the inflammation in the foot and in that way offers to the patient some relief.
Dr. DeFabio for the treatment of this condition uses an intracell stick, a tool that patients can safely use at their homes, and if this does not help, he applies the Graston procedure.
In Graston procedure, he uses a stainless instrument to break down scar tissue thus offering elasticity in the foot. By doing so, he drives blood into the foot and incites healing. Likewise, this technique is used to promote flexibility in the calves. After that, the doctor wraps the foot with two kinds of tape hence taking the pressure off the plantar fasciitis.
This technique is extremely good as it prevents the feet from curling in the wrong way.
Therefore, if you know someone who is experiencing this kind of condition, then this technique will be of great assistance to him/ her. Yet, you need to consult your doctor before applying this technique.
