Planter fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain and could be very hard to treat. Plantar fasciitis caused by overuse, and the resulting strain placed on the fibers close to the plantar fascia attachment to the heel bone. Traditional treatments of this condition consist of rest/ice, night splints, exercise, and medication. These treatments don’t always work and often take a long time. There is, however; a treatment that does work effectively and quickly…..called Graston.
Graston Technique® is a unique evidence-based form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization used by more than 22,650 clinicians worldwide. It is successful and effective at treating all soft tissue conditions, whether they are chronic or cute. Utilizing the Graston technique decreases overall time of treatment, faster rehabilitation/recovery, reduces the needs for anti-inflammatory medication and resolves chronic conditions thought to be permanent. Most plantar fastiistis cases will feel a difference with six to eight sessions being seen 2 times a week.
