How do I know if I have plantar fasciitis or heel spurs

Health and wellness are essential components of everyday life. At Multicare Health Clinic, we encompass medical doctors, chiropractors, physical and massage therapists at one facility. This makes it easy for our patients to get the treatment necessary for their pain management without traveling around town. Since 2002, we have been treating patients together, providing them with free consultations with our doctors to ensure that they receive recommendations for optimum care.

Is It Plantar Fasciitis or a Heel Spur?

Plantar fasciitis is inflammation of the tissue on the bottom of the foot that connects the heel bone to the toes. It usually causes a stabbing pain early in the morning with the first step. The pain caused by plantar fasciitis typically decreases over the course of a day, but may return when standing for a long period of time. This is different from a heel spur, which is a calcium deposit that causes a bony protrusion on the bottom of the heel bone.

Our superb chiropractic care team offers chiropractic treatment for both ailments with your comfort in mind. These conditions are very painful, and can only worsen if left untreated. Our chiropractor works well with our medical team who may see patients with this type ailment first. A proper evaluation is necessary to determine the accurate diagnosis as these two issues are similar, and the symptoms are closely related.

Schedule an Appointment for Your Pain Management

Our chiropractor and medical staff are available five days per week to take your calls and get you into the office. Pain does not have to be an overwhelming part of daily living. We are open from 8:30am-6:00pm Monday–Thursday, and 8:30am-2:00pm on Friday. Give us a call today at 712-276-4325. At Multicare Health Clinic in Sioux City, we can help eliminate your pair for good.
