Plantar fasciitis (PLAN-tur fas-e-I-tis) is one of the most common causes of heel pain. It involves inflammation of a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of each foot and connects the heel bone to the toes (plantar fascia).
Plantar fasciitis commonly causes stabbing pain that usually occurs with your first steps in the morning. As you get up and move, the pain normally decreases, but it might return after long periods of standing or when you stand up after sitting.

At ChiroPlus we combine traditional treatments like dry needling, manipulation, stretch and strengthening exercises with the latest technology.
Shockwave Therapy works by initiating repair of damaged tissue.
Shockwave Therapy carries far less risk than invasive procedures such as surgery. It can therefore be a safe, cost effective approach to the treatment of stubborn, persistent, chronic plantar fasciitis and pain under the foot.
At ChiroPlus we offer a comprehensive solution for plantar fasciitis by combining traditional therapies, including stretch and strengthening, taping, and joint mobilisation, with the latest Shockwave Therapy technology. This ensures that we not only get you out of pain quickly, but keep you pain free for longer.
Studies in 2009 and 2013 both found progressive, ongoing improvement in pain and function following just 4-5 shockwave treatments of Plantar Fasciitis. Symptoms continued improving further up to a year after treatment.
