What is one of the most common causes of heel pain? Plantar Fasciitis!
We have all experienced stabbing pain on the bottom of our feet, but what if it stays and nothing makes it better?
Walking, standing, running or anything involving our feet become unbearable.
Luckily though, Graston Technique has been researched and proven to help rid the pain of plantar fasciitis. Personally, I have had plantar fasciitis and had it properly treated with Graston Technique.
The plantar fascia, which is located at the bottom of our feet, acts as a shocker absorber and supports the arch of your foot. When stress and tension become too much, the fascia gets small tears leading to irritation and inflammation.
Plantar Fasciitis is more common in:
People between 40 to 60 years old
ballistic jumping activities
factory workers, teachers, and other professions that spend hours on their feet
An abnormal walk pattern and people that are flat-footed or have high arches could also be prone to get plantar fasciitis. Ignoring plantar fasciitis will lead to chronic heel pain as well as might lead to foot, knee, hip, or back problems.
