When you get out of bed in the morning, do you experience foot pain? Does this foot pain also come on when you get up after sitting down for a long period of time? Are you a competitive athlete, a "weekend warrior", or someone with a physically demanding job?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then you may have or are at risk for having a common foot pain condition known as plantar fasciitis. At Davison Chiropractic, our Tualatin chiropractor, Dr. Davison, has worked with hundreds of Oregon natives struggling with this condition which fortunately can respond very well to chiropractic care.
Go ahead and touch the arch of your foot. What you're feeling is a long ligamentous tissue called the plantar fascia, which runs from your forefoot to your heel. This fascia is important for creating stability and mobility in your foot and helping to absorb forces imposed on your body during weight-bearing activities (like walking, running, stair-climbing, etc.).
Sometimes, this band of tissue can become inflamed and irritated, leading to a variety of uncomfortable symptoms described below. When this happens, a person can be said to be suffering from plantar fasciitis.

These services are completely non-invasive and drug-free, delivering the maximum potential benefit with an extremely low risk of adverse reactions.
