Are you looking for treatment for plantar fasciitis in Kitchener and Owen Sound? You'll find it from the whole person chiropractor at Advanced Pain Relief Clinic. Explore the different treatment methods we use for heel spurs and learn how they work together to promote fast healing.
Symptoms and Causes of Heel Spurs
Heel spurs are calcium deposits on the bottom of your heels. Many people who get heel spurs are athletes, who overuse their feet through running, cycling, or other activities. While heel spurs may nor affect your life, most people who have them feel the pain that limits their ability to be active.
Heel spurs frequently co-occur alongside plantar fasciitis or inflammation of the plantar fascia that connects the heel to the foot. Muscle strains or tears on other foot ligaments can also cause heel spurs. By treating heel spurs and any co-occurring conditions together, our chiropractor can help you find relief.
Our Treatment for Plantar Fascitis in Kitchener and Owen Sound
We use chiropractic care, shockwave therapy, and laser therapy to relieve heel pain.
Originally developed to treat kidney stones, shockwave therapy proved valuable for natural pain relief. During treatments, shockwaves penetrate the skin to the cells, ligaments, bones, and joints that are inflamed.
With laser therapy, we apply a cold laser to the skin. The beams of light sink into the skin and go right to the injured tissue, promoting regeneration in a natural and non-invasive manner.
These physiotherapies resolve pain and inflammation, even in severe cases of heel spurs.
We also adjust the bones of your feet using chiropractic care. By adjusting your feet to relieve inflammation and pain, we can improve your quality of life. To help you maintain comfort in between appointments, we will demonstrate leg and foot stretches or make lifestyle suggestions for pain relief.
