How 1-Spine Chiropractic Relieves Plantar Fasciitis | Chiropractor in Lubbock, TX

Hey, it’s Dr. Greg Marin here at 1-Spine Chiropractic. Today we’re gonna be discussing a condition called plantar fasciitis and how chiropractic relieves plantar fasciitis in our office here!

Adjustments for Plantar Fasciitis

The cool thing about plantar fasciitis is we get results by doing chiropractic care, laser therapy, squash out therapy, soft tissue supported therapy and all sorts of different modalities. So what we want to do is we’re gonna demonstrate how chiropractic adjustments help relief from that plantar fasciitis pain. So what happens with the foot is we want the bones correlated and in the foot working properly so they still function and feel well. What happens is we have a bone that’s stuck or we have an old injury that makes a foot not work the way you need to. This will all be affecting the arches and the heels of your foot. So we’re going to demonstrate how this foot gets adjusted to let things function properly, but more importantly, move the way we need to prevent further injury. Today, we’re gonna be adjusting the ankle joint, and we’re gonna be working on the talus right here. So what we’re gonna do is grab the talus in this position here, slowly pull here and let the patient relax. So getting that ankle joint adjusted, helps everything function better, and move better. Okay, so next month we’re going to work on are gonna be the navicular bone, and the cuboid bone. So these bones are work on the arch of the foot. So a lot of times when the bone drops out of place, the arches don’t function well. So what happens is we have issues at the bottom of the foot with the tendons, which is what’s causing that plantar fasciitis and some irritation. So we’re going to work on the navicular bone right now. And we simply get that in the position where it needs to be.

The Cuboid Bone

All right, so next one we’re gonna be working, like we spoke about is the cuboid bone. There are times when that bone gets misaligned and causes a lot of lateral pressure in the foot and down that lateral tendon there. So we’re gonna get that bone back in place today as well. So let’s go back out here with a little tug. So like we spoke before, when the bones are in place, things function properly, there’s less pain, less injury probability, and more importantly the tendons that go from the heel, down the foot are less irritated. Hopefully that plantar fasciitis pain that you might be experiencing goes away. So what happens at 1-Spine Chiropractic is we go the extra mile, we want to figure out why the foots hurt, it might be a discrepancy in your hips, your gait might be off in your stride. What we’re going to do here as well is we’re going to actually adjust the pelvis. What we’re going to do is evaluate your legs and make sure one leg is not shorter or the pelvis not rotated. So get you adjusted from head to toe here and to assure things feel better and heal better. So it’s going to have the patient go on her tummy for us and then what we’re going to do first of all, we’re gonna do an evaluation to make sure one legs not a little shorter. So we do see a short leg that is telling us the pelvis is rotated. When a pelvis is rotated, your weight favoring one side might be causing some compensation. So we’re gonna get that adjusted by getting these bones back in place here!

Chiropractic care helps with all alignment and specific symptoms you have to reduce irritation!
