Plantar fasciitis: a condition in which repetitive weight-bearing stress irritates and inflames the tough connective tissues along the bottom of the foot. It is characteristic of a sharp heel pain that can be felt along the bottom of the inside of the foot. This can occur with runners or other athletes who repetitively land on the foot. Another susceptible group is middle-aged people who have spent a lot of time on their feet. Proper diagnosis and treatment is necessary to ensure patients get back on their feet.

Nick Catlin from Jen Reviews discusses and demonstrates 30 ways to stretch, relieve, strengthen and prevent lower back pain.

Instrument adjusting techniques in the chiropractic setting are used to focus on adjusting specific spots or areas of the body with special tools. Targeting these areas can be a workout for practitioners because of the squatting, bending and reaching it may involve. That is where PHS Chiropractic comes in to save the day (along with your back and energy!).
