Effectiveness Of Prescription Orthotics And Shockwave Therapy In Winnipeg In The Treatment Of Plantar Fasciitis
In our Winnipeg chiropractic clinic, plantar fasciitis is a frequent cause of pain and disability in the foot of adults, it mainly affects the population between 40 and 60 years of age and can suffer from sedentary people to people who run marathons.
People who are diagnosed with plantar fasciitis usually localize the pain in the anteromedial area of the calcaneus.
Both prescription orthotics and Shockwave Therapy are two effective treatments to treat plantar fasciitis, Shockwave Therapy by Connect Chiropractic in Winnipeg is most effective in reducing pain, while for improving foot function, long-term prescription orthotics have proven to be a very effective method.
Currently, the adult foot represents the highest percentage of orthotic prescriptions, and within them, plantar supports.
But What Are Orthotics And How Do They Work In Winnipeg?
These orthotics can be a correction (flexible foot), support, or accommodation (rigid or inflexible feet).
The objective is to achieve with them the correct posture of the feet and reduce pain during the time a person is standing and while walking. In adults, foot pain, whether mechanical or inflammatory in origin, is very common and is the cause of numerous sick leave and social disorders.
There are prescription orthotics tailored according to a specific pathology, since the human foot is a complex three-dimensional structure, made up of 28 bones and 57 joints, with complex biomechanics.

What Are The Risks Of Not Treating Plantar Fasciitis?
- Plantar Tears: If plantar fasciitis remains untreated, inflammation and stress on the plantar fascia can result in small tears.
- Plantar Rupture: Plantar rupture can occur if plantar fasciitis is not treated correctly, and you continue to participate in activities that place a high impact on the plantar fascia. These activities can include running, sports, or even standing for long periods of time in inappropriate shoes.
- Plantar Fibromatosis: Nodules that usually grow slowly at first and are undetectable, followed by rapid and sudden growth. As time passes and the nodules grow, walking can become uncomfortable and painful.
- Heel Spurs: Pointy protrusions that dig into the fat pad of the heel, causing great pain with each step.
