NO MEDICATION. NO PAINFUL INJECTIONS.
Relieve your heel pain and get back to doing the things you love without discomfort. Work one-on-one with our expert Doctors of Physical Therapy for proven results and an improved quality of life.
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.
Get the care and focus that you need to heal with our one-on-one, hour-long sessions. While other physical therapists take on multiple patients at the same time, our team knows that your health should be
our only focus during your appointment. Get the most out of your time and money with a personal treatment session with a trained physical therapist.
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.
