How a Deep Tissue Massage Can Provide Relief from Plantar Fasciitis
The plantar fascia is a long flat band of connective tissue (ligament) that connects your heel bone to your toes. If you spend a lot of time on your feet or you have high arches, you could develop plantar fasciitis, a painful inflammation of the plantar fascia. Plantar fasciitis can also be caused by wearing poorly made shoes, poor posture or by other conditions such as being overweight. The pain from plantar fasciitis makes it difficult to do routine activities like climbing stairs or going for a walk, and the symptoms are usually at their worst when you first wake up in the morning. Although rest may alleviate the symptoms it will not treat the root cause of the problem. You may want to take advantage of the services of a massage therapy center in Denver such as Berkley Community Acupuncture and Massage Therapy to help with this painful condition.
