"Plantar Fasciitis is a painful condition of the foot which can develop from a morning annoyance into an all-day torment. While many popular treatment methods include surgery, needles, medications, and other non-natural approaches, no sufferer is limited with these choices. Regular massage therapy has proven to help overcome the long-term pain and discomfort associated with Plantar Fasciitis."

The Health Benefits of Plantar Fasciitis Massage Therapy

What exactly is Plantar Fasciitis? 

This condition represents one of the most common causes of heel and foot pain. The bottom of your foot has a band of specialized tissue that connects your heel bone to your toes - the plantar fascia. In the onset of Plantar fasciitis, stabbing pain may begin to occur in this area with your first steps in the morning and even progress to times later in the day. This condition is one of extreme and chronic tissue irritation in the foot.

Symptoms

The symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis are troubling, mobility-limiting, and painful. In the least severe cases, those experiencing this problem may experience some very temporary pain, stiffness, and inflammation first thing in the morning or upon waking up. As it progresses, however, so does the magnitude and frequency of these symptoms.

You may begin to feel the onset of these symptoms at later times in the day, as opposed to just upon waking. The symptoms may also become much stronger, with increased pain, inflammation, stiffness, and even nerve-twitching and muscle fatigue.

Causes

For such troubling symptoms, one would surely assume that there must certainly be some obvious reasons for this particular foot condition. That hypothesis is correct as science has indeed identified many of the causes of this painful ailment.

Foot experts have identified excessive stress as the culprit in most people. The plantar fascia is supposed to be highly resilient, functioning as a spring and support apparatus for the foot. When it gets inflamed, it hurts to stand or put weight on the feet. Not all cases are a result of stress and overuse, as some experts believe genetics must play a role too. The following are some of the primary risk factors for Plantar Fasciitis development.
  • Age
  • Bad Foot Mechanics
  • Strenuous Exercises on the Foot
  • Primarily Standing, Upright Job
  • Obesity

 Non-Holistic Treatments

Most medical doctors will apply a variety of non-holistic options before anything else. These treatment options depend on many factors, but will typically include pharmaceutical medications for pain relief and Cortisone injections. Surgery may result if the condition persists. 

Doctors may also recommend use of special orthotic devices or night splints. Night splints are worn to stretch the calf and keep the foot and ankle anatomy aligned in a more favorable position for the Plantar Fasciitis. Orthotics are shoe inserts that can be purchased over the counter or by prescription via a custom-fitting process.
Holistic Massage Treatment

On the more natural, holistic side of the treatment of this foot condition is the option of targeted and holistic massage treatment. Massage therapy for Plantar Fasciitis can lead to excellent results and takes place in two forms: holistic and targeted. While targeted massage approaches work the particular problem area and nearby locations, holistic massage technique is applied to the entire body with the intention of increasing blood flow and immune response, the release of many missing feel-good body chemicals, and more.
