If you have ever experienced heel pain caused by plantar fasciitis, you understand that this is a condition that can be severely limiting in your daily life.  Plantar fasciitis is common in runners due to repetitive, overuse injuries of the fascia, many times caused by poor running technique or improper foot support.  Sharp, debilitating pain is experienced at the front part of your heel bone (calcaneus) where the plantar fascia attaches.

How can Chiropractic help with plantar fasciitis?
Chiropractic takes a whole body approach in the treatment of plantar fasciitis.  We take into account your kinematic chain (how the body works together) to see where your body imbalances are as these imbalances will affect the way you walk and ultimately contribute to plantar fasciitis.  This means we assess your joint mobility and muscular imbalances of your lower back, hips, knees, ankle, and foot as all of these structures can put added stress on the way you walk/run.  Often, patient will notice a significant relief after their first treatment which includes chiropractic adjustments, sports massage, and physiotherapy modalities that help balance your body and speed up the healing process.

Let's face it, auto accidents are never fun!  You're in pain, you're sad seeing your car smashed, and you're stressed dealing with insurances trying to figure out how your car is going to be repaired and how to get your healthcare taken care of.

Here are a couple of tips to make your auto accident claim go as smoothly as possible:

1)  After any accident, get a collision report from the police and get statements from any witness who saw what happened.  This is help protect you in case the person at fault starts to deny their responsibility in the accident when talking to their insurance.

2)  Contact your insurance company and let them know that you have been in an accident.  Make sure you write down your claim number and the name of the adjustor helping you with your case

3)  Get your health taken care of...IMMEDIATELY.  If you are in a lot of pain and discomfort, make sure you go to the emergency room to make sure there is nothing life threatening happening.  After the ER, schedule an appointment with your chiropractor and begin getting your health back.  The most critical time to get care is as early as possible, so don't wait weeks or months until you follow up with your healthcare provider.

4)  Check the coverage of your policy.  Do you have med-pay that will cover your health expenses?  Do you have a deductible you have to pay in order to get your car fixed?  Know your policy inside and outside to avoid any surprises.

5)  If things are not going as smoothly as you would like, contact a lawyer and see if they can help you.  Most personal injury lawyers offer free consultations to see if they are able to help, which means no out-of-pocket expense for you!
