How Long Does Plantar Fasciitis Last?

If you are asking the question, “How long does Plantar fasciitis last?” you might already have a diagnosis or you might suspect you have plantar fasciitis. Either way, you can expect to have plantar fasciitis for up to eight months. For some people, the recovery time is six months and for some others, it takes less time. However, the quickest way to recovery is to see a specialist, follow instructions, and try not to rush the healing process. Although the pain usually subsides within a few weeks, it takes months for the fasciitis to reattach to the heel. If you have not seen a doctor for this condition yet, visit the MultiCare Health Clinic today.

Diagnosing Plantar Fasciitis

One of the primary symptoms of plantar fasciitis is heel pain. Pain is almost always an indication that something in the body is not right. Our chiropractor may take an imaging test to confirm the diagnosis. This condition is often caused by repetitive use, prolonged standing, and intense running or jogging. Although a physician can diagnose this condition, the most successful treatment lies in the hands of a professional and knowledgeable chiropractor.

Chiropractic Treatment

A chiropractor, unlike a regular doctor, treats your entire body. Our chiropractor will focus on the problematic area, such as plantar fasciitis, and develop a treatment plan. The treatment plan will focus primarily on getting your foot to heal with the use of medication. Chiropractors believe that under the right circumstances, and given an adequate amount of time, the body can heal itself. Over time, chiropractic adjustments will eliminate your pain, restore your range of motion, and reduce your likelihood of being injured again.
