Spinal health week

May is Spinal Health month and this is when Chiropractors at Complete City Health come together and focus on educating the public about the importance of good Spinal health.


Many of us do not seek help until we have pain or injury, however seeking advice from a Chiropractor for preventative care can prevent many months of pain and treatments.
The spine plays a vital role in our health and wellbeing and according to the recently published Global Burden of Disease study, musculoskeletal conditions have the fourth greatest impact on the health of the world's population.
But how do you know if there is some concern that needs to be addressed and looked at by a
Chiropractor? Well, spinal health problems manifest as headaches, poor posture, neck pain, lower back pain, hip pain and more. So having any of these issues can be a cause for concern.
The increase in spinal health problems can be attributed to sedentary lifestyles, increase use of digital devices and lack of activity at work.


So this May, book your Free Check up with one of our Chiropractors now and prevent spinal issues from occurring.

Heel Spurs? Heel Pain? Plantar Fasciitis?

A study conducted in Australia showed that 66 percent of people included in the study suffered from foot pain. One of the most common areas of the foot to suffer pain is the heel.  I am sure that you are familiar with the term Plantar Fasciitis? Most of us have all had a friend, family member or colleague suffer from this condition.

Heel spurs are rarely the causes of heel pain but allow Podiatrists to understand a little bit more about how your foot functions. When something pulls on bone, the bone will grow. This is exactly what is happening in the case of a heel spur. This new growth of bone rarely causes pain but we can see that there abnormal forces going through your feet!

 

Where does the name come from?

The plantar fascia is a thickened band of connective tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot, starting at the heel bone and heading towards the toes. When we see Itis after a word it means inflammation. So Plantar Fasciitis means inflammation of the Plantar Fascia.

 

Why causes Plantar Fasciitis?

Research has found numerous causes of Plantar Fasciitis such as:

-          Poor biomechanics ( rolling in excessively, High arches, Low arches etc.)

-          Poor Footwear

-          Changes in weight

-          Changes in exercise intensity

-          Changes in exercises regularity

-          Tight Calf muscles

 

How do we treat Plantar Fasciitis?

 

The key for treating plantar fasciitis is determining the cause and fixing the root problem. This is why you can hear varying stories from friends/family/colleagues about their Plantar Fasciitis treatment.  Everyone’s treatment plan can be significantly different. The key is early treatment! Plantar Fasciitis becomes more difficult to treat the longer you have the condition. The good news is that with our individually tailored treatment plans you will be seeing significant results quite quickly.
