Chiropractic Care with Alan at Wolke Chiropractic

Plantar Fasciitis, or inflammation of the tissue along the bottom of the foot, is one of the most common causes of heel pain. It is usually caused by repetitive stress and is characterized by sharp pain in the heels, which is worse in the morning and may subside after stretching and watching. Potential causes of plantar fasciitis include

  • Tight Achilles tendons
  • Weak foot muscles
  • Flat or high arches
  • Sudden increase in physical activity
  • Improper shoes
  • Obesity

Physical Therapy for Plantar Fasciitis


Treatment to restore flexibility and range of motion

First, our physical therapist will address and treat the painful symptoms. Then, you will strengthen the muscles in the foot and ankle and work to restore the flexibility and range of motion to the muscle structures around the heel and arch. Physical therapy for plantar fasciitis also involves correcting your gait to prevent further symptoms.

Long-Term Treatment for Plantar Fasciitis


Wolke creates comprehensive treatment plans

Plantar fasciitis patients can return to a healthy pain-free lifestyle after following a customized rehabilitation program. In addition to physical therapy, our physical therapists may prescribe additional activities as part of your treatment plan:

  • Rest and avoidance of extended running, jumping, standing, and walking
  • Ice therapy
  • Medication prescribed by your primary care physician
  • Orthotics and well-fitted shoes with proper arch support
  • Taping to distribute stress away from inflamed tissue
  • Strengthening and stretching exercises such as a Gastrocs stretch, Soleus stretch, and Intrinsic Muscle stretch


At Wolke Chiropractic & Rehabilitation we have chiropractic care, therapeutic massage, physical therapy, and acupuncture for pain relief, spine correction and structural restoration.  Additionally, we offer wellness plans for those looking to continue to remain healthy once their problem is corrected.
