Effective NW Calgary Planter Fasciitis Treatment

At Shephard Health, we use a combination of NW Calgary Planter Fasciitis Treatment modalities to effectively treat Plantar Fasciitis. In order to effectively relieve pain from planer fasciitis, the biomechanical complications must be corrected in order to reduce the chronic strain of the fascia. We use Active Release to treat the soft tissues of the foot, calf muscles, the muscles in the leg, and the hips as these areas are all related to Plantar Fasciitis. We use Cold Laser Therapy to treat Plantar Fasciitis on a cellular level. Cold Laser Therapy helps cells to produce more energy, in turn promoting healing. As light energy is transformed into biochemical energy in the body, the blood supply to damaged cells is increased and the healing process is stimulated. Shockwave Therapy and Custom Orthotics also treatments we use for planter fasciitis, here at Shephard Health!
