Client case study: Plantar Fasciitis

Problem client came in for: The client came in with painful plantar fasciitis (inflammation of the heel and sole of foot) 

Treatment plan provided: After the initial consultation, we decided to do 5 shockwave therapy sessions, supplemented by a bespoke strength and conditioning plan targeting the lower leg and foot musculature to build strength and help avoid the injury from reoccurring. 

Treatment plan outcome: We are pleased to report that the client has made a full recovery. They have been able to walk long distances and have also begun running again with no pain.How to avoid this injury: Make sure you do not wear worn-out running shoes or trainers that have lost their integrity and arch support. Regularly stretch your arches and feet if you have been walking for a long period of time, or if you have been on your feet all day.
