Plantar Fasciitis / Heel Pain - TRCC Total Rehabilitation and Chiropractic Centre

Please wait...

The plantar fascia is a band of fibres that run from the heel to the base of the toes. Plantar fasciitis occurs when these fibres become irritated, partially torn, or over-stretched. Most commonly over-pronation results in a constant tugging of the plantar fascia attachment site (at the heel). Inflammation results from this constant irritation and scar tissue begins to repair the site of injury. Pain and tightness occur in the arch or heel upon weight bearing. Pain is typically worse in the morning with the first steps as the foot assumes a flexed position during sleep and the plantar fascia contracts. The pain gradually improves with activity and eases throughout the day.

A number of factors contribute to the development of plantar fasciitis including: a leg length difference, overpronation, a supinated foot, inappropriate footwear, muscle tightness, overtraining and overuse. Because the condition is caused by repetitive microtrauma, most athletes experience plantar fasciitis as part of an overuse syndrome following changes in their training regimen.

Treatment Goals:

  • Breaking down the scar tissue and pain control with Targeted Soft Tissue Therapy, Acupuncture and/or Physiotherapy
  • Correcting poor biomechanics (over-pronation) with Orthotics and/or proper shoe selection
  • Modifying the training program to allow proper rest and repair to the injured tissues
  • Prevention of re-occurrences

Here's an example of what just one session of Fascial Remodeling can do! This before & after are an hour apart.

RMT Asha started working with this client to prep her for breast reduction surgery. They did 2 prep sessions prior to the reduction, and this treatment was their first one since the surgery 3 weeks ago.

The client reported feeling more breast congestion on her left side post op, but as you can see her entire torso was congested (1). Her whole right side was pulled up (3) and rotated (2), and most of her weight was on her left leg (4). After the treatment, the torso girth reduced, her rotation relaxed (see the belly button position), and her weight was evenly distributed on both legs.

Breast work was modified according to the client's current activity level, surgeon's recommendation, and scar quality.
