Planter Fasciitis

Plantar Fasciitis From Our Vernon Hills Chiropractor

You probably find yourself standing, running and walking a surprising amount of the time and you're never more aware of how much time you spend on your feet until they start hurting. If you suffer from a painful form of soft tissue inflammation called plantar fasciitis, doing your job or living your daily life may be all but impossible. That's why you need to seek out the drug-free, all-natural plantar fasciitis treatment available to you right here at Molloy Chiropractic Center, Inc.

Plantar Fasciitis

What Is Plantar Fasciitis?

Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the band of connective tissue called the plantar fascia. This tissue begins at the ball of the foot and stretches back toward its other attachment point at the heel bone. The purpose of the plantar fascia is to support and reinforce the arches of the foot, which are critical for distributing your body weight evenly across the foot as you stand and move. As you might imagine, the plantar fascia is subjected to a lot of stress even under ordinary conditions -- and when the conditions become extraordinary, the tissue may suffer micro-tears that eventually turn into a state of painful, chronic inflammation. Specific causes may include:

  • A congenital or acquired abnormality in the arches (high arches or flat feet)
  • Musculoskeletal imbalances anywhere along the body's kinetic chain
  • Jobs that require many hours of standing or walking
  • Ill-fitting shoes or shoes that provide poor arch support

The classic sign of plantar fasciitis is pain that is actually worse after you've been off your feet for several hours, such as when you first step out of bed. Walking around may cause the discomfort to lessen somewhat -- but you won't enjoy real relief until you address the root cause of your plantar fasciitis.

Natural Relief From Our Vernon Hills Chiropractor

The good news is that you don't have to keep suffering from this debilitating problem. Our Vernon Hills chiropractor, Dr. Dennis Molloy, can figure out exactly why you're suffering from plantar fasciitis, which enables him to treat, not just your symptoms, but also their underlying causes. A detailed evaluation of your spinal alignment, for instance, may reveal an imbalance that needs correction through chiropractic adjustment. (You might even benefit from adjustments to the joints in the feet.) Massage therapy can be a great relief to sore soft tissues by increasing circulation, relaxing the tissues and relieving inflammation. We may also recommend a variety of lifestyle changes, from specialized footwear or arch supports to alterations in your work or sports routine, to help you avoid future bouts of plantar fasciitis.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

    I was first recommend to Dr. Molloy a few years ago, and then last year re-injured my back. Dr. Molloy was able to diagnose my problem even before the MRI. Began treating immediately, which after months of pain I finally was able to return to normal activities. I continue to visit for regular adjustments. The Doctor and his office staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Being able to see him on my schedule is great. Highly recommended.

    DOC FIXED MY HEART ATTACK!!!! Seriously, after a morning at Condell ER for chest pain, nothing was found. Chest pain continued. Went to Doc, explained the pain. He adjusted a rib in my sternum I had sprained cleaning/moving my 230 pound Dad. Pain immediately GONE!! I have known Doc is a miracle worker for more than 30 years, but this took the cake!! I LOVE you all !!!
