Why We Treat Plantar Fasciitis

Finding that you can’t walk or run normal, healthy distances without pain is frustrating at best, seriously scary and life-limiting at worst. The ability to walk and run comfortably forms a big part of our most basic sense of physical freedom. If you are suffering from plantar fasciitis you probably know what we mean.

Our entire lives are based on the ability to move… life is movement. The inability to move comfortably through your day and week can make happiness and enjoyment of life a big challenge. The knowledge of these facts is what drives us to do everything we can to help get you out of pain in a way that is comfortable, stable and long-lasting. Your quality of life is what drives our processes!

Plantar Fasciitis FAQ

What is the Process of treatment necessary to relieve my plantar fasciitis pain?

Treatment of the pain aspect in plantar fasciitis cases is really a matter of systematic trial and error. Find practitioners who will work their way through different treatment methods until they find those that work best for you. At that point you should decide whether you also want to rehabilitate any of the underlying weaknesses in your feet and legs that caused you to have pain in the first place.

What is the best treatment for plantar fasciitis?

The best treatment for plantar fasciitis is ultimately the one that works for you, unfortunately there is no way of knowing which that is without trying them out. The treatments with the best track record at our clinic are scar tissue scraping (guasha), acupuncture, deep tissue release, stretching and vibration massage.

Does Ibuprofen help with Plantar Fasciitis?

We take pain killers because they often give great (if temporary) relief from chronic pain conditions like plantar fasciitis. If you are looking to take a more serious look at resolving your condition take painkillers as you need them but also look deeper into the topic of actually healing the issue.  Seek some treatment that prioritises managing pain and scar tissue build up, and that then moves on to restoring strength and support to the foot.
