What Is it?
A common condition which is caused when the soft tissue on the sole of your foot becomes inflamed. The pain can be present anywhere from the toes to more commonly the heel of the foot, although can affect anywhere in between. This can cause immense pain when you stand up or take those first few steps after being sedentary.
What triggers it?
Having Osteopathic treatment for plantar fasciitis is beneficial. Your osteopath will get to the bottom of why you are susceptible and if there is anything you can change in your lifestyle to prevent reoccurrence. Massage and mobilisation of the foot and lower leg to improve the muscles and biomechanics help the recovery too. Sometimes there are problems higher up the body, usually the lower back or pelvis which when resolved can really help.
You will be sent away with some ‘homework’ and some stretches to get to the root cause of the issue.
