Although it is painful, there is actually no need for worries, as it is a treatable condition which does not require surgery.
You just need to relax, until you get the necessary information for the most appropriate recovery.
In one video, the famous Dr. Donald DeFabio has shared how he diagnosed this condition and the way he treated it in his patients. Also, he will provide some valuable chiropractic advice on the proper treatment at home.
But, before you see the video, first we are going to explain this condition more briefly to you.
– What is plantar fasciitis?
It is a common condition which affects people who put a bit more stress on their feet, such as runners, athletes or overweight people.
Those people suffering from this condition describe the pain as a severe and stabbing, which starts even in the morning. This pain happens when the plantar fascia or the tissue which connects the heel to the toes becomes inflamed.
If you experience some similar pain, remember to consult your doctor as soon as possible, as they can most certainly treat.
Here is the way in which Dr. DeFabio treats this common condition.
First of all, a proper diagnosis is the root of every successful treatment. Then with an interdisciplinary approach, Dr. DeFabio reduces the inflammation in the foot and provides the patient some relief.
For this condition, DR. DeFabio uses an intracell stick, which is a tool that patients can safely use at their homes. If this is not helpful, he applies the Graston procedure.
In that procedure he uses a stainless instrument to break down scar tissue and provide elasticity in the foot. In this way, he drives blood into the foot and stimulates healing. This same technique is also used for promoting flexibility in the calves.
This is actually one very important technique which prevents the feet from curling in the wrong way.
Further on, the doctor also wraps the foot with two types of tape thus taking the pressure off the plantar fasciitis.
So, if you know some person suffering from this condition, recommend him this article, as it will help him a lot. You just need to consult your doctor, and apply this technique as well.
