When to seek treatment for Plantar Fasciitis?
It's best to begin treating plantar fasciitis as early as possible, because the worse it gets, the longer it takes to get better. I have seen some people's plantar fasciitis pain get so bad that they can barely walk, so this is one that you really want to get under control as early as possible. By the time plantar fasciitis gets to the stage where one can barely walk, it can take a few weeks to resolve, and will require a change of lifestyle pace so that the plantar fascia has more opportunity to heal without applying additional stress to the tissues.
Besides taking longer for the plantar fascia to heal, in the meantime people with a sore foot adjust the way they walk to compensate for the foot pain, and this can lead to knee, hip and back problems. Because Bowen Therapy works differently to other therapies, I have frequently helped clients relieve their plantar fasciitis pain where other treatments have failed.
