Plantar Fasciitis is an inflammatory condition causing pain on the underside of the foot near the heel. The pain is commonly intense in the morning and reduces to a dull achy pain as the day progresses. This is commonly caused by abnormal gait, excessive supination or pronation, leg-length inequality, obesity, bad shoes, running on irregular surfaces, standing for long periods, or a shortened calf muscle.
Active Release Technique is extremely effective in treating this condition and restoring the normal function of the foot. In addition, chiropractic adjustments help to restore the proper biomechanics of the foot and leg. Rehab and orthotics are also recommended in treating this condition.
