What is Plantar Fasciitis?

Plantar fasciitis is a nerve condition caused by inflammation in the tissue in the base of the foot and the heel. When you are suffering from plantar fasciitis the pain comes from tears in the ligament that connect your heel bone to your toes. Fortunately treatment is available at the Bossier Chiropractor Diagnostic & Treatment Center.

What are the Symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis and When is Treatment Necessary?

When you have plantar fasciitis the most common symptom is stabbing pain in your heel. You may find it difficult to stand or walk due to this pain. Other symptoms include stiffness and tenderness in the affected area. If this pain is reoccurring, spreading, or causing you to miss out on daily life, then it is time to visit our chiropractor in Bossier City, LA for treatment. 

How Does Your Chiropractor in Bossier City, LA Provide Treatment for Plantar Fasciitis?

As plantar fasciitis is caused by micro tears in the ligaments in the foot, the primary mode of chiropractic care is healing these tears. We provide a chiropractic adjustment to stimulate circulation and healing. This is key to reducing inflammation and swelling that is associated with heel pain. Additionally, at our chiropractor we provide you with corrective exercises that help to heal and repair the ligaments without the use of heel surgery or painkilling drugs. We can also use cold laser therapy to help stimulate ligament repair and reduce plantar fasciitis pain.
