Plantar Fasciitis Treatment at InterX Pain Clinic Stratford Upon Avon

Plantar Fascia

I think I have cracked it! Plantar Fasciitis Treatment

I have successfully treated 108 cases of plantar fasciitis over the last 8 months in Stratford Upon Avon. This has been part of a research study with clients ranging from 10 years old to 79 years of age and a average age of 47 with an even mix of males and females.

I have used my 5 step process to develop the medical device protocols and the biomechanical and gait assessment strategies for the fastest pain relief and recovery! I am working on refining my assessment at consultation stage to predict likely treatment package required.

Clients have had a range of treatments of varying time and intensity. The optimal frequency of treatment is 3 sessions within 2 weeks then weekly as required. Clients vary with coping strategies for plantar fasciitis and we have to modify movement and rest and break habits.

The medical treatment has been a significant breakthrough with pain and inflammation reduction in the first sessions then progressing with healing the fascia for lasting results. As the fascia heals pain tends to move around the foot as the complexity of the foot structure means multiple sites of damage.

Depending on how long the client has had the plantar fasciitis, used insoles, had surgery or other foot issues impacts on how the foot moves and can be loaded. This can further hinder the fascia recovery. Walking and standing particularly in the morning is a common theme and walking and standing all clients reported difficulty with.

 All clients needed some gait or walking modifications and in some cases compensation due to plantar fasciitis. As the pain reduced and the fascia was healing then ankle movement improved enabling a better walking movement. This improvement lead to other parts of the foot been painful as alternative muscles tendons and ligaments were been used so front ankle pain and ball/top of foot and big toe increased in discomfort.

The last key area of treatment focus is on the calf muscle, ankle and achilles tendon. The soleus the muscle going into the achilles tendon was of particular focus just above the ankle. This started to have light inflammation when been used more as clients progressed with treatment. The treatment for this area in addition to interX was red light therapy which works specifically on tissue and the mitochondria in muscles. This treatment as highlighted in the video is enhanced when used with interX and helps cells work aerobically with oxygen and gets rid of toxins faster.

As already stated movement was essential once the pain subsided and the clients who moved the most and focused on specific movements progressed the fastest with the greatest magnitude of results.

Specific Plantar fasciitis healing movements are discussed in more detail here

The results are a culmination of lots of reviewing progress and adapting treatments, some experimentation with footwear and movements along with some amazing clients.
