Plantar Fasciitis Pain Treatment
Plantar fasciitis is a relatively common condition with symptoms of heel pain and inflammation. Symptoms also occur in the foot's sole. The condition can be debilitating and impacts mobility and the quality of daily life. While various treatment options are prevalent, massage therapy shows promise in relieving plantar fasciitis pain
and consequently promoting healing.
A massage therapist will target impacted tissues and muscles and provide relief by improving circulation and creating flexibility.
Massage Therapy for Plantar Fasciitis
Massage therapy for the condition of plantar fasciitis emphasizes specific techniques addressing the tension/tightness in the plantar fascia and near muscles. The licensed massage therapist uses myofascial release, deep tissue massage, and stretching techniques for targeting affected areas. The application of pressure and the manipulation of tissues releases tension and breaks down adhesions. When blood flows freely to the impacted areas, there is relief felt.
Among the primary advantages of massage therapy for plantar fasciitis is relief from pain. The direct manipulation of affected tissues reduces inflammation. Regular sessions help to manage pain and improve comfort, letting people engage in daily activities without any hindrance.
Additionally, massage therapy improves circulation in affected areas. With increases in blood flow, massage therapy forces oxygen and nutrients delivery to tissues, helping in healing. Enhanced circulation also helps the flushing out of metabolic waste and the reduction of inflammation.
Another main benefit of massage therapy by a licensed massage therapist, for plantar fasciitis, is support in flexibility and motion. The tightness in the plantar fascia and near muscles may limit movement and add to the pain. Through focused manipulation, massage therapy loosens tissues, improves flexibility, and restores normal motion.
Get All the Benefits
With the physical benefits, the psychological advantages you get with massage therapy are immense. It alleviates chronic pain which can be an emotional drainer. With pain reduction comes the release of endorphins that play a role in the reduction of stress, leaving people calm and relaxed at the end of a therapy session. Using massage therapy with other medical treatments goes a long way to relieve the negative symptoms of plantar fasciitis.
