Are you one of the many people who experience foot or heel discomfort in the morning after taking those first steps of the new day?
Do you experience cramping for no apparent cause in the arch of your foot?
You may have a common condition known as Plantar Fasciitis. Plantar Fasciitis effects the thick band of connective tissue known as the Plantar Fascia. This thick band connects your toes and the ball of your foot to your heel. It functions as a shock absorber and stabilizing component for your arch.
Common causes of plantar fasciitis include sports activities, standing for long hours on hard surfaces, excessive weight and even frequent long walks can be a cause. Wearing certain shoes can also contribute to the condition.
The good news is, there is a treatment offered at Luxe Spa by massage therapist Janet Lambert Smith that can alleviate foot, calf and heel pain—quickly getting you back on your feet and able to enjoy the activities that you love!
Depending upon several factors, including general health, activity levels and severity of the condition, Janet is able to address the cause of your symptoms and release several associated muscle groups that contribute to the condition, offering relief in as few as one treatment. For more chronic or severe cases of foot and leg pain, treatment for Plantar Fasciitis becomes an ongoing focus of treatment which is incorporated into a monthly massage regime. Each individual is seen as unique, and the actual treatment protocol varies from person to person.
If you would like to be seen for symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis, foot, leg or even back pain, request a Deep Tissue appointment at Luxe Spa with Janet Lambert Smith, LMT.
