If the plantar fascia is strained, it can become weak, swollen & inflamed, causing foot pain effecting ground contact and the stability in your feet.

And whilst It tends to affect to 40-60 year age group more, it can happen at any age. The greatest population effected by this condition tends to be people with an obesity issue and in sports people.

Specialist Treatment And Prevention Of…

Plantar Fasciitis

Firstly don’t ignore it. Plantar Fasciitis can be chronic and enter a phase of disrepair where the body fails to recover, and then you can struggle to get rid of it. Research highlights  at 10 years after it started 44% still had symptoms when not treated. Reducing the pain does not mean its cured, it simply puts you into a better position to manage and work to a full recovery.

If you do start to develop Plantar Fasciitis or there are signs you think it could be, rest and protect the heel area. Stop any triggers such as the sport or hobby making it worse. Avoid going barefoot, slippers or flip-flops. Wear cushioned, supportive footwear, including trainers.

Keep active – don’t become afraid to weight-bear but equally cut down on long periods of standing and overuse. Practice stretching exercises, taping the ankle and arch of the foot to stabilise the foot.

Anti-inflammatory medication or ibuprofen don’t help much unfortunately.

Don’t use ice unless you have a diagnosis this can be helpful or a hinderance to recovery.

If the pain lingers or does not settle down an assessment with a professional is recommended, along with an exercise plan to create stronger feet.

Knowledgeable practitioner who was able to look at what was the underlying issues related to my back pain, rather than just treating the acute incident. Easy to book and pay online

I turned up quite desperate and in a lot of pain, Francis was able to improve my situation from the first visit. 2 trapped nerves in my back and hip I was definitely at my worst but was treated with care, dignity and patience. I wasn’t fobbed off with poxy exercises to do, my treatment was hands on, my body manipulated to ease pressure on the nerves which had me pretty much pain free after a few visits. I still see Francis but my appointments arnt as regular now, my appointments are more preventative. Would recommend highly 👍

Never really been to of these before. Really friendly nice people who are very professional. Which is what you want when you sitting in your underwear things what's this about. Anyway my back was ridiculously painful. I was unable to walk even a mile without having to sit down. Now it's fine I feel better, sleep better move better. Well worth going well worth the money.

After years of sciatica, 9 months of paralysis and 16months waiting on the hospital Francis mostly fixed me within 5 sessions. Cannot fault the gentleman, caring, knowledgeable and professional. Huge thanks,

When my wife saw Francis for the first time she could barely walk up the stairs to his practice. She left walking normally and was pain free within three visits. We cannot thank him enough. Highly recommended.

I visited Francis a couple of times to treat a hip problem, I ended up having a 3d gait analysis on another visit, it proved to be really helpful and informative. He was really friendly and extremely knowledgeable at what he does. I would definitely visit again and would recommend him to everyone.
