Plantar Fasciitis Medical Massage

Wellness Organix in Fort Wayne, IN, offers a series of massages dedicated to healing plantar fasciitis.  Plantar fasciitis is a painful inflammatory foot condition that can be difficult to treat.  Surgery is often recommended.  Fortunately, there is a natural form of healing at Wellness Organix.

People who are on their feet a lot and runners are especially prone to getting plantar fasciitis.  Some medical professionals believe that dieting and losing the wrong type of fat can cause or increase the pain of plantar fasciitis. 

People who have plantar fasciitis often experience pain at the heel or instep of one or both feet.  The pain can be very intense upon the first steps in the morning.  And it gets worse after walking or standing as the unhealed plantar fascia gets more torn and inflamed. 

The plantar fascia is a ligament that runs from the base of the toes to the heel. The plantar fascia connects with the Achilles tendon on the calf of the lower leg.  This specialized medical massage therapy works on the calves as part of the massage series and loosens up the ankle joint as well as the plantar fascia on the bottom of the foot.

This specialized massage usually takes 3 – 6 sessions for the pain to diminish.  Equally important are staying off the injured foot or feet as much as possible, elevating the affected foot, proper fitting shoes (no flip-flops), natural anti inflammatories, soaking the feet, and stretching. Wellness Organix will give your instructions along the way.

Getting well from plantar fasciitis is a process that can be healed, with dedication, perseverance, and specialized plantar fasciitis massages.
