Kinesio Tape Treatment for Plantar Fasciitis
Plantar fasciitis is the sharp pain felt on the underside of the heel. It occurs when the plantar fascia, a band of tissue connecting your heel bone to the base of your toes, is inflamed or irritated. The plantar fascia functions as a stabilizer to your foot arch. If it is overly strained, you may experience the sharp pain at the bottom of your foot.
When you have plantar fasciitis, it can disrupt functional activities such as walking or running because of the pain. A chiropractor can help determine the underlying cause of your condition and come up with the right treatment to manage the pain and inflammation.
The Kinesio Tape is one treatment your chiropractor may recommend. It can relieve the pain, decrease the pressure off the plantar fascia, support the foot's natural arch and encourage the muscles around the plantar fascia to provide more support. The KT Tape is a method of taping to give support and stability to your joints and muscles without affecting circulation and range of motion. They are forms of taping to enhance the body’s own natural healing process.
Kinesiology Taping is effective in treating soft-tissue injury. Young athletes who are prone to getting plantar fasciitis due to overused or injured muscles can benefit from plantar fasciitis kt tape.
