Plantar Fasciitis in Rock Hill

Plantar Fasciitis in Rock Hill SC

Have you ever felt a sharp, stabbing pain in your foot? Is it worse in the morning or after prolonged periods of sitting or standing? Do you have flat feet, high arches or tight Achilles tendons? Doctors in Rock Hill could diagnose you with Plantar Fasciitis.

Plantar Fasciitis is an injury which occurs due to inflammation of connective tissue (fascia) that runs across the sole of the foot. The plantar fascia works like a rubber band. If the band is short, you have a high arch. If the band is long, you have a low, or flat, arch. A pad of fat covers the tissue and helps your heels to absorb shock put on your feet. Damage to the plantar fascia can cause heel swelling and pain. Ignoring plantar fasciitis may result in chronic heel pain that hinders your regular activities, change the way you walk and can be a contributing factor to developing calcaneal heel spurs.

The negative effects of plantar fasciitis go far beyond your feet. A sort of domino effect is liable to wreak havoc in other parts of the body, especially the spine. The feet play a pivotal role in balance. Plantar fasciitis disrupts balance, causing you to compensate with other parts of the body. This means the hips or hamstrings may be taking a greater share of the load. In turn, you’re more likely to have poor posture habits as compensation for the poor balance. This domino effect can lead to multiple spinal issues, including:

  • Subluxations (misalignments in the spine)
  • Kyphosis (spinal deformity)
  • Pelvic rotation or translation
  • Slipped, herniated, bulging, or cracked discs
