How We Can Help

Find the Root Cause of Your Pain

Plantar Fasciitis doesn’t start out of nowhere. In fact, it can almost always be caught earlier if you know the symptoms to look out for.


We examine more than just the foot when it comes to Plantar Fascia pain. In order to improve your symptoms faster we will look all the way up the lower extremity to decrease the time it takes to be pain free. The goal is to get you walking normal to avoid compensation patterns that will create increased pain and slow your recovery. We use manual therapy techniques combined with specific exercise therapy and thermal laser to relieve your symptoms.


While the pain comes from your heel and foot, the source of the injury likely starts somewhere else in your body. Our expert doctors know how to find the root cause of your pain.

Manual Therapy

How We Achieve A Better Diagnosis with Less Discomfort

What is manual therapy? Manual therapy is a method physical therapy that involves the therapist feeling exactly how your body reacts to specific movement and exercises. A lot of pain and discomfort comes from lack of mobility or a small range of motion. Through simple movements and exercises, we're able to get your body used to these motions again, reducing or completely removing your pain.

Manual therapy includes a detailed biomechanical assessment. This means that your therapist will watch and feel how you move in order to make the most accurate diagnosis possible. This leads to faster recovery times and improved outcomes.
