Plantar fasciitis treatment in Beaverton, Oregon
Catalyst Chiropractic and Rehabilitation offers effective treatment of plantar fasciitis in Beaverton, Oregon through specialized chiropractic care. Plantar fasciitis is an injury to a thick band of connective tissue on the sole of your foot called the plantar fascia. This fascia connects to the inside part of your heel bone, the calcaneus, and spans the length of your foot to your toes. The pain caused by plantar fasciitis often originates from the attachment of the fascia on your heel. When it is injured, usually from a repetitive overload, it becomes inflamed and can cause severe pain.
Chiropractic care is an excellent choice for non-surgical, drug-free treatment of plantar fasciitis. Chiropractors are trained to properly diagnose this condition and specific treatments to aid in recovery. The keys to effectively treating it are to relieve pain, decrease inflammation, stimulate soft tissue healing, and correct biomechanical faults that contribute to repetitive stress on the plantar fascia.
Dr. Kip Thompson has multiple years of experience successfully treating plantar fasciitis in Beaverton using cutting edge chiropractic and rehabilitation techniques. Dr. Thompson uses modalities such as ultrasound and cold laser to decrease pain and inflammation. He also utilizes a technique called Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) to provide a type of deep tissue massage to the plantar fascia to stimulate the body’s natural healing response. Using a hands-on chiropractic evaluation, he will examine the joints of the foot and all the way up the kinetic chain to the spine, as even subtle dysfunctions in any of those joints can lead to a repetitive stress injury such as plantar fasciitis. At Catalyst Chiropractic we also employ slow motion video gait analysis deficiencies in the gait cycle that can lead to your injury.
