As spring activities go into high-gear, watch out for Plantar Fasciitis

Chiropractors have a safe, painless treatment for this potentially debilitating condition: Soft tissue therapies and Foot Levelers custom orthotics. Freehold Chiropractor raises awareness how foot stabilization can help heal and even prevent it.
FREEHOLD, N.J. - April 24, 2021 - PRLog -- This condition is under diagnosed and overly painful. And it targets everyone, from those who are hard on their feet to professional athletes. We're talking about plantar fasciitis.

Simply put, plantar fasciitis is inflammation of the tissue in your foot. Toe-curling pain from plantar fasciitis usually presents in the heel area and worst first thing in the morning when you get out of bed and take that first step. One common cause of plantar fasciitis is shoes that don't fit properly. Example: Women are 2.5 times more likely to get plantar fasciitis than men due to wearing high heels.1

An estimated 2 million Americans2 are treated for plantar fasciitis every year. What that 2 million number doesn't consider is the millions of people who suffer in pain every year and have no official plantar fasciitis diagnosis.

Surgery and injections are often prescribed to treat plantar fasciitis. But we offer a safe, drug-free, non-surgical treatment for plantar fasciitis: Foot Levelers custom orthotics.

The Foot Levelers custom orthotics are custom-made specifically for your feet based off a 3D scan. Foot Levelers custom orthotics help treat plantar fasciitis by:
  • Positioning the foot in a proper position for healing
  • Supporting all three arches to help distribute pressure on the feet more evenly. (Foot Levelers is the only custom orthotic provider that supports the three arches of the feet.)
  • Cushioning and protecting the heel from repeated trauma. In In fact, 9% of running injuries in the United States are due to plantar fasciitis.3
From work boots and dress shoes to cleats and running shoes, Foot Levelers makes custom orthotics for all of your shoe types and activities. And when you are at the beach or on the way to the gym, Foot Levelers also makes custom-flip flops!

Whether you are a weekend warrior or have children getting ready for spring sports, help them reduce the risk of and prevent pain from plantar fasciitis through Foot Levelers custom orthotics.
