Traditional heel, foot and ankle stretches could actually be the cause of pain.

May 5, 2014

Heel stretches could be the cause of heel pain, pain blamed on a bunion or plantar fasciitis that impacts a runner’s training program.

Frequently this pain can be abolished with a few simple exercises and the runner is able to return to running within days of their first visit.  It can be that fast.  Plantar fasciitis, bunions or Achilles tendonitis might have been the original cause of pain and inflammation but when the pain becomes chronic there is often another structure that the present pain arises from.  These structures are the nerves in the area of pain.  Come see us at CHC Physical Therapy.  We specialize in Neuro-Musculoskeletal Physical Therapy. 

With most insurance providers, a doctor’s order is not necessary for physical therapy.

Plantar Fasciitis Anatomy

Plantar Fasciitis

The nerves in the foot cannot be ignored when treating foot pain.  Traditional stretches can cause nerve entrapments and more pain.

The physical therapists at CHC Physical Therapy successfully treat pain caused by nerve entrapments.

Medial Plantar Nerve

Bunion Pain

The Medial Plantar nerve going around the edge of the great toe most often is the cause of pain blamed on the bunion.  The cause of pain is the entrapped nerve at the bunion.  This pain is a much quicker and easier fix than surgically repairing a bunion.  And there is no downtime.
