Dr Dolan of Dolan Family Chiropractic in Aurora, IL specializes in the treatment of foot pain like plantar fasciitis.  Plantar fasciitis is comes from the inflammation of the connective material on the bottom of the foot called the fascia.  Trauma and overuse are the most common causes but it is a very common condition experienced by runners and athletes.  Hallmark signs of plantar fasciitis are foot pain first thing in the morning or at the beginning of exercise.  The pain is usually localized in the medial arch of the foot or in the heel.  The pain is relieved by rest or stretching but flares up again with activity.  This injury can become chronic and remain for months or can go away within days of onset.  Dr Dolan has been treating plantar fasciitis for years and gets great results using therapeutic ultrasound, soft tissue massage, stretching, and custom-made foot orthotics to support the arches.  The orthotics help to support all 3 arches of the foot to relieve stress from the fascia and allow the foot to heal while still allowing activity.
