Reflexology is different from traditional massage therapy. According to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, massage works on the muscles to help relax tension, and therapists use kneading, rubbing and other techniques to loosen the muscles so that they don't pull as tightly on the joints. Reflexology takes it further by working the pressure points in the feet that are associated with the body. Those who believe in reflexology find that it is effective for relieving the symptoms of painful conditions in the feet and heels, such as heel spurs. Plantar Fasciitis is an inflammation caused by unnecessary stretching of the plantar fascia The plantar fascia is a wide band of fibrous tissue which runs all along the bottom surface of the foot, attaching at the bottom of the heel bone and extending to the forefoot. When the plantar fascia is much stretched, this can source plantar fasciitis , which can also direct to heel pain, arch pain, and heel spurs Persistent pain. Even if a patient displays plantar fasciitis symptoms, pain in the heel may not result from plantar fasciitis Hence, even after successful surgery for plantar fasciitis , some people may have continued pain. A lot of essential oils have properties that can be really helpful for treating many foot ailments or discomforts. Some oils have disinfectant, antibacterial and antifungal properties that can help with problems like nail fungus or athlete’s foot. Others are anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic and analgesic which can help with sore feet, arthritis and plantar fasciitis. We can also find oils that are antiperspirant which can help with foot odor and sweaty feet. Others can help repair cells and moisturize for those who have cracked heels. Bacterial Vaginosis is one of the most common infections caused in the vagina. It is an overgrowth of bacteria in the vaginal part of the body. Of all the conditions that we treat Plantar Fasciitis (PF) , is one of the most common. In fact, between the running community and the general public I see new cases of Plantar Fasciitis almost every day. This can be a very frustrating condition for a lot of people who previously have achieved only minimal or no results. Exercise and lifestyle recommendations can be implemented before, during, and after treatment. Besides restoring the quality of the tissue by breaking up any restrictions it is important to become stronger and more flexible, and to build more power. This will help insure that the Plantar Fasciitis does not return. The mode of surgery is mostly open. An incision is made through the heel pad and the part of the ligament is cut to relieve the tension. Any damaged tissues or heel spurs are also removed during the surgery. Endoscopic mode of the surgery involves locating the damaged area of the ligament by the means of various endoscopic instruments, that are inserted inside the body.
