Is it Plantar Fasciitis?

Is it Plantar  Fasciitis?

Many times, pain in the bottom of the foot or heel can be pushed into a blanket diagnosis of “you have plantar fasciitis”. But is it plantar fasciitis? Could it be another condition like tibialis posterior tendonitis, stress fracture in the heel, radiating pain from the low back? While getting a blanket diagnosis of plantar fasciitis based on zero exam with some basic rehab and soft tissue techniques thrown at it may work, there is a good chance it probably will not. You must know what you are aiming at. And in the same boat, what is causing the plantar fasciitis? Just because there is pain and inflammation in the plantar fascia does not mean that the CAUSE of the pain is coming from that area as well. In fact, it rarely does. This is why seeking out help from sports chiropractor or physical therapist is important to get a proper diagnosis and most importantly find out the main cause of the pain.

Understanding Pain

When patients present with pain, we can usually put each patient in one of two categories: they weren’t doing enough activity, or they were doing too much. Let’s give you two examples. The most obvious is in the springtime, when the weather is nicer, people will take up running; but this is after not running for months because of the season and weather. When the person tries to run the same amount of miles, or as fast as they did prior to their hiatus, is when they get in trouble. This is a simple case of "too much, too soon": the amount of excessive load on the tissues causes strain and will send a signal to the brain for help because something is wrong.

IMG_8971

"Maintenance care” is a moniker used in the chiropractic profession to get patients to be proactive about their health and bodies by scheduling visits in advance even though they are not currently in pain. The thought in doing so would be to mitigate the likelihood of future injuries/presenting in pain by addressing issues prior to them getting to that point.

Home Mobility to Stay Pain-Free!

IMG_F1B7E68F06B9-1 One of Dr. Reals' favorite mobility exercises

Pain often comes on insidiously. You may think it’s no certain cause, but a lot of it can come down to self-care habits. I often tell patients that pain is usually stars aligning with a lot of variables that all added up to finally having the tissue “give out” and sending off a painful signal(s) to the brain: physical inactivity, lack of quality nutrition, constant strain or posture, poor sleep habits, insufficient water intake, etc. This isn’t always the case of course, but a combination of these can definitely be main factors of why you’re in the state you’re in.
