Understanding the Cause Allows You to Apply the Proper Treatment.
The problem begins and gets worse with a lack of movement between the bones of the middle foot. When they don't move properly, it causes a sharp pull on the muscles and fascia in the arch of the foot. The muscles in the calf can also increase tension on the back of the heal limiting the proper motion of the foot.
Once you understand the cause of the pain, you can apply treatment modalities to correct the issue.
In the office this would include Active Release Technique and IASTM to address the issues with the muscles and fascia, in the calf and along the bottom of the foot. This along with mobilization of the joints in the foot and ankle, results in a comprehensive treatment protocol to address Plantar Fasciitis.
