So, what exactly is plantar fasciitis? It's a condition that causes pain and inflammation in the thick band of tissue that runs along the bottom of your foot, called the plantar fascia. This can happen from overuse, improper footwear, or even just standing or walking for long periods of time. Athletes, especially runners and dancers, are at a higher risk of developing plantar fasciitis due to the repetitive stress put on their feet.

So, how can our physical therapy clinic help? Firstly, our doctors of physical therapy will work with you, one-on-one, to identify the root cause of your plantar fasciitis. By analyzing your gait and foot mechanics, we can determine if you have any imbalances or abnormalities that may be contributing to your pain. From there, we'll develop a customized treatment plan specifically tailored to your needs.

A Different Treatment Approach for Plantar Fasciitis

So how is the treatment approach different at Breaking Through than from a traditional physical therapist or what you would find on YouTube? Many approaches you will find on the internet, or at traditional physical therapy for plantar fasciitis, are an attempt to treat the symptoms. Things like iontophoresis, ice, stretching, rolling your foot on a frozen water bottle, Kinesio Taping, orthotic, etc… These may decrease the pain, but will not address the root cause of the problemThe plantar fascia is completely dependent on the performance of muscles that are above the ankle that control motion of the ankle and foot. The doctors at Breaking Through are going to assess how you are moving and restore motion and control of your ankle, knee, and above to reduce the stress impacting your plantar fascia.  

Our private practice physical therapy clinic is here to help you overcome this common condition and stay in the game y treating the root cause, instead of the pain.
