"I spend all day on my feet at my Tulsa Boutique. Dr Marshall helps me take care of the foot pain from plantar fasciitis and keeps me up and working. I highly recommend him."
Marshall Tulsa Chiropractic today announced that it has implemented the latest therapy used to treat plantar fasciitis known as percussion therapy.† Percussion therapy feels like massage therapy on the foot.† The sensation is very comfortable and actually feels good.† Most patients get up after a session and feel much better. After the fascia is loosened up from the percussion therapy Dr. Marshall will administer a chiropractic adjustment to the foot.† After the treatment the patientís foot is in proper alignment and the muscles and fascia associated with the pain are relaxed.†
Plantar fasciitis is a medical condition that can be extremely painful in the feet.† It can manifest pain in one foot or both and is one of the most common causes of heel and foot pain.† Most people complain of pain from walking, running or when first standing up.† Many patients explain to doctors that the pain can be worse in the morning or after sitting for a long period of time. The pain is usually described as sharp and stabbing, but can sometimes feel very tight and hurt with each step.† This condition can come on slowly overtime and is usually not improved until treatment is rendered.
The main cause is when the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue on the bottom of the foot, becomes very tight and inflamed.† Running, exercising, poor shoes and support are just a few things that can cause this fascia to get tight and painful. Many runners are treated for this condition simply because of the repetitive nature of their training program.† Shoes like high heels or older shoes that have lost their support can also inflame the fascia of the foot. New shoes or even arch supports can make a big difference with foot pain and alignment.
The best approach to stop plantar fasciitis is to start with a conservative and non-invasive one.† Sometimes simply stopping the cause can make all the difference in the world.† But when thatís not an option treatment can be administered. Treatments such as stretching and orthotic shoe inserts can sometimes be useful. Many times the best approach is to get help at a physicianís office such as a chiropractor.
Dr. Marshall at Marshall Tulsa Chiropractic has been treating patients with plantar fasciitis for over ten years now.† Adjusting the foot can relieve pain and the pressure that causes foot pain.
