Plantar Fasciitis Pain
Is the most common cause of heel pain. The plantar fascia is the flat band of tissue (ligament) that connects your heel bone to your toes. It supports the arch of your foot. If you strain your plantar fascia, it gets weak, swollen, and irritated (inflamed). Then your heel or the bottom of your foot hurts when you stand or walk.
Plantar fasciitis is common in middle-aged people. It also occurs in younger people who are on their feet a lot, like athletes or soldiers. It can happen in one or both feet.
Plantar fasciitis is caused by straining the ligament that supports your arch. Repeated strain can cause tiny tears in the ligament. These can lead to pain and swelling.
Luckily, we can help!
Manual therapy can be highly effective in reducing many types of foot related pain, includingplantar fasciitis, by relieving the stress, tension, inflammation and impingement of the nerves, ligaments and muscles in the feet and lower legs.
Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
Is a pinching of the tibial nerve, which stretches down the back of the leg to the inner ankle. In this area of the ankle, a complex mix of nerves, muscles, and ligaments meet; this makes the tibial nerve prone to entrapment, or pinching.
Symptoms of tarsal tunnel syndrome include foot pain and weakness as well as numbness and tingling in the sole or arch of the foot.
A nerve might get pinched as a result of:
- An injury to the ankle
- Rolling the foot inward when walking or running (pronation)
- A tissue mass or cyst
- An area of inflammation in or around a tendon (tenosynovitis)
Manual therapy can be highly effective in reducing Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome related pain by relieving the stress, tension, inflammation and impingement of the nerves and soft tissues of the pelvis, lower legs and feet.
