Often people struggle with chronic pain due to plantar fasciitis, a condition where the bottom of the foot becomes stressed, inflamed, and very painful. Most of the time, conventional therapies do not have a good answer for plantar fasciitis aside from icing the inflamed tissues, doing some rolling on massage balls and such, and then working to keep the area moving and promote blood flow.
At Evo Performance Rehab, we have the ability to find the source of why the plantar fascia has been taking too much stress to the point where it becomes damaged or inflamed. In one individual, we might find the origin of the issue is in other muscles of the lower leg or even up into the hamstrings or quadriceps muscles.
We have successfully treated many plantar fasciitis cases in a wide range of locations with neuromuscular dysfunction. It may seem odd to people with foot pain to consider that the source of their foot pain may be under-functioning hamstrings. But through the neurological soft tissue therapy process, we can help discover the true origins of the issue quickly and work to remedy them just as quickly.
Another injury to the lower leg that is commonly a very big struggle for people is an Achilles tear. People are typically put in an immobilizing boot for a number of weeks. And while this is necessary to help the surgically operated areas knit back together, it often creates large amounts of atrophy in the involved muscles and sets the person up to have a lasting limp in their walking gait.
At Evo Performance Rehab, we can do work and even send a stimulator device with people to completely halt any muscle atrophy that they would undergo if they need to get their Achilles repaired. And then as soon as they are cleared for range of motion exercises, not even load bearing.
We can work with that person's nervous system to regain the ability to fire and control muscles to a high degree. So by the time they're cleared to start walking again, without the boot they're already hitting full range of motion with confident muscle contractions.
I have had clients go from being cleared to be out of their boot to shooting a jump shot on the basketball court within nine days. Commonly, we are able to shorten the recovery timeline in to 1/3 to one half of the normal time and also create a much higher level of outcome.
Recently a client I worked with nine months ago reported that her injury side Achilles feels stronger and more stable than her non injured Achilles after having gone through the therapy process.
