Plantar Fasciitis causes a stabbing pain to occur in your heels. What causes the pain? A thick band of tissue that connects your heel to your bones in your toes becomes inflamed. You may feel it when you first arise in the morning after getting out of bed. This is because your muscles and tissue are stiff from inactivity during the night. As you move around, the muscles in your feet warm up and you may notice less pain. The problem is that every time you relax, the pain returns. You may be sitting down watching television and notice the pain return when you get up to walk around.


Plantar Fasciitis is common in runners and athletes who engage in either intense sports or high-impact aerobic activity. In addition, people who are overweight who wear shoes with low support may also suffer from Plantar Fasciitis.

What Are the Symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis?

The most noticeable symptom of Plantar Fasciitis is severe pain near the heel of your foot. You may not notice the pain when you are walking or exercising. However, when your muscles have cooled down after exercise, you may start experiencing pain that gradually gets worse. You may also feel tightness in your heels that leads to a slight lack of mobility.


Plantar Fasciitis occurs when there is too much tension and stress on the tissue around the arch of your foot. The stress causes tiny tears in the area of the tissue known as the fascia. Over time, repetitive stretches or stress can lead to additional tearing. This leads to inflammation, which inevitably leads to more pain.

How Can Chiropractic Treatment Help You?

●        Stress reduction. Bomberg Chiropractic can help you take some of the stress off the ligament to allow the area to heal through chiropractic adjustment.

●        Injury mitigation. Chiropractic care can help mitigate certain misalignments that are caused by both an adjustment in your gait (due to other conditions) and your intense activity.

●        Supplemental treatment. If you are currently seeing a podiatrist or orthopedic specialist for your Plantar Fasciitis, chiropractic treatment can act as an effective supplement to your other treatment because it is non-invasive. It is a great form for physical therapy.
