Plantar Fasciitis Relief at Zaker Chiropractic

Patient with Plantar Fasciitis seeks treatment in los angeles and orange county.

Plantar fasciitis is a common condition affecting people of all ages and lifestyles; it can be incredibly debilitating when it occurs. Foot pain is associated with any instances of Plantar Fasciitis. 

At Zaker Chiropractic, our team (led by respected chiropractor Dr. Misa Zaker) works tirelessly to help people find plantar fasciitis treatment without having to rely on drugs or invasive procedures. This way, they can get back to the activities they love with as little downtime and as little risk for adverse reactions as possible. 

Understanding Plantar Fasciitis

Feel the bottom of your foot. That structure—also known as the arch of your foot—is called your plantar fascia. This thick band of tissue helps your foot move, stabilize, and absorb forces during normal weight-bearing activities like standing, walking, and running.

Sometimes, this tissue can become inflamed and irritated (often due to repetitive stress, hormonal changes, or other factors). When this happens, a person has plantar fasciitis leading to foot pain.

Signs and Symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis

The primary symptom of plantar fasciitis is heel pain or foot pain that can develop gradually or quickly. This pain is often described as sharp. It's often worse first thing in the morning when a person gets up, rises from a seated position, or climbs stairs. Pain may come on during or after exercise, as well. 

In addition to pain in feet, people with plantar fasciitis also often complain of stiffness in the foot and ankle. This discomfort leads many of our patients to us to seek treatment for plantar fasciitis and the accompanying foot pain 

Risk Factors for Plantar Fasciitis

As mentioned, anyone can experience plantar fasciitis. However, research does indicate a few common risk factors:

  • Doing "too much too soon" when it comes to exercise or physical activity (e.g., over-training)
  • Prolonged time at work standing on the feet and/or a physically demanding job
  • Inflexible ankles
  • Excessively low or high arches
  • Other underlying health conditions include obesity, diabetes, and pregnancy
