Foot Problems

Is foot pain holding you back?

Advanced Integrated Medicine can help…. AND provide you with a better chance of healing by getting to the cause of the foot problem.

Dr. Drew Czerminski explains, “Subluxation of the lumbar spine can lead to disc pathology, resulting in weak foot muscles, i.e., Collapsed Arch of the Foot. This causes the muscles to stretch beyond the norm which threatens to tear off the calcaneus bone of the foot. The body’s natural response is to bind the muscle to the bone which we see as an evident calcaneus bone spur.”

The plantar fascia is a thick, ligamentous connective tissue that runs from the heel bone to the ball of the foot. This strong and tight tissue helps maintain the arch of the foot. It is also one of the major transmitters of weight across the foot as you walk or run. Thus, incredible stress is placed on the plantar fascia, often leading to this condition— an inflammation of the plantar fascia that causes stabbing or burning pain in the heel or arch of the foot. Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain.

Plantar fasciitis can feel like stabbing pain that typically occurs with your very first steps in the morning. Once your foot limbers up, the pain often decreases. However, it may return after long periods of standing or after getting up from a seated position.
