One of the best things you can do when experiencing painful feet or heels is to have things checked out by a health professional who knows the condition extensively. Attempting to wait it out can result in more damage, while further complicating the symptoms and delaying the recovery process. In many cases, something as simple as having custom orthotics made can serve as a fast, inexpensive and effective solution.
Those who’ve waited longer to have their feet scanned may stand to benefit from additional therapies such as chiropractic adjustment, physical therapy or daily stretching exercises.
Chiropractic for Foot Pain
all cases of foot and heel pain originate in the feet, and even in cases where they do, it’s not always the result of a degrading plantar fascia. Subluxation, misalignment and other spinal conditions can place pressure on nerves that directly affect the feet. If you’re unsure of what’s causing pain in your feet or heels, seeing a chiropractor early in the process can help expedite recovery.
Custom Orthotic Inserts
After having your feet laser 3D scanned, your charts are sent to a lab that creates fully-customized orthotic inserts which provide comfort, stability and arch support by contouring the unique curves and pressure points specific to each foot. Right away, many users report having less pain, in addition to more upright posture and less aching at the end of the day.
Stretching and Conditioning
only thing more important than regularly stretching the muscles and joints of your feet, is making sure that you’re stretching them properly. This greatly increases flexibility and blood flow, both of which are essential for healing and rehabilitating these hardworking structures.
