Plantar fasciitis

May 23, 2013

Plantar fasciitis is a pain on the bottom of the foot. It is a condition that normally does not respond well to traditional methods of treatment. It causes muscular dysfunction and sharp pain. Very common injury for runners.

The plantar fascia is a band of fibers which runs from the heel bone to base of the toes. Plantar Fasciitis occurs when these tissues are irritated and become inflamed.

Plantar fasciitis can be caused by any number of things from too much standing, wearing unpadded shoes on hard ground, or repetitive stress to a diet low in vitamin C, being overweight, or an increase in activity among other things.

Some of the many different treatments we offer:

Active Release Technique is a patented, active hands-on soft tissue treatment with a movement based massage-stretching technique that treats dysfunctions within muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. 

Graston Technique is an innovative, patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively detect and treat scar tissue, adhesions, and restrictions that affect normal function. Graston is used to break down the scar tissue so it can be absorbed by the body. 

Therapeutic Ultrasound is a form of deep therapy created by sound waves. When applied to soft tissues and joints, the sound waves are a form of micro-massage that helps reduce swelling, reduce scar tissue, increase blood flow, and decrease pain, stiffness, and spasms leading to faster healing times. 

Cold Laser Therapy or Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a treatment that uses specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissues and is thought to help accelerate the healing process. It can stimulate all cell types including muscle, ligament, cartilage, nerves, and bone allowing a number of conditions to be treated. 

Kinesiology Tape is a type of tape that uses a bio-mechanical lifting mechanism to lift the skin increasing the blood flow around the muscle, facilitating the natural healing process.  It is often used with athletes as a way to help joint stability without inhibiting normal range of motion of the joint or muscle being treated. Lyn Lake Chiropractic is Certified Rock Tape Doc Clinic!

Active Release Technique - Lyn Lake Chiropractic

May 4, 2013
ART is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles.
 
How do overuse conditions occur?
Over-used muscles (and other soft tissues) change in three important ways:
  • acute conditions (pulls, tears, collisions, etc),
  • accumulation of small tears (micro-trauma)
  • not getting enough oxygen (hypoxia).
Each of these factors can cause your body to produce tough, dense scar tissue in the affected area. This scar tissue binds up and ties down tissues that need to move freely. As scar tissue builds up, muscles become shorter and weaker, tension on tendons causes tendonitis, Quick read more or view full article and nerves can become trapped. This can cause reduced range of motion, loss of strength, and pain. If a nerve is trapped you may also feel tingling, numbness, and weakness.
 
What is an ART treatment like?
Every ART session is actually a combination of examination and treatment. The ART provider uses his or her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.
 
These treatment protocols - over 500 specific moves - are unique to ART. They allow providers to identify and correct the specific problems that are affecting each individual patient. ART is not a cookie-cutter approach.

Chiropractor Dr Ryan Jones at Lyn Lake Chiropractic is a Certified Active Release Technique Specialist. Lyn Lake Chiropractic is always trying to offer more treatments that may help their patients.
