Plantar fasciitis is a type of heel pain that can cause significant discomfort and make it difficult to stand, walk, and run. Without proper treatment, it can last for long periods, negatively impacting your ability to move and do the things that you need and want to do.

At Paragon Integrated Medical in Lake Elsinore, California, skilled chiropractor Patrick Connolly DC offers many innovative treatments to ease chronic pain. Supported by his experienced and friendly staff, Dr. Connolly provides diagnostic services and effective treatment options to ease your plantar fasciitis pain and get you moving freely again.

Defining plantar fasciitis

This uncommonly-named malady gets its monaker from the plantar fascia, a thick band of fibrous tissue that runs along the bottom of each foot. Plantar fasciitis is the inflammation of this band of tissue. It can cause intense, stabbing pain that can make it difficult for you to stand, walk, run, or complete any other movements on your feet.

Common causes of plantar fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis can be caused by a number of activities and conditions that put extra stress on your heel, including:

  • Obesity
  • A job that keeps you on your feet
  • Age-related changes
  • Exercise that places extra stress on your heels
  • Flat feet or high arches on your feet

Your plantar fascia supports the arches in your feet and absorbs shock when you are moving. Repeated stress on this tissue can cause tears, irritation, and inflammation, causing you pain.

Easing your plantar fasciitis pain

At Paragon Integrated Medical, our staff have special expertise in treating chronic pain to allow you to get back to doing the things that you need and want to do. Dr. Connolly and his staff provide innovative, effective treatments that ease your pain and allow you to move freely and without discomfort.

The care that we provide you is personal and tailored to your exact needs. At your first appointment, Dr. Connolly reviews your medical history, discusses your current concerns and symptoms, and completes a physical examination. He orders any needed diagnostic tests that help provide more information about your condition.

Once Dr. Connolly provides you with a diagnosis, he then develops a treatment plan that takes into account any past history you have with effective or ineffective treatments for your condition. Drawing from a wide range of chiropractic and alternative medicine options, Dr. Conolly develops a plan to ease your discomfort and restore your freedom of movement.

As a result, the inflammation that is causing your discomfort is reduced, allowing your body to heal more effectively and efficiently. Your function improves, allowing you to get back to the things you want to do. Dr. Connolly provides ongoing monitoring of your condition to ensure that you are getting effective treatments that help you heal and avoid reinjury.
