Do you suffer from inflammation along the bottom of the foot? This is called plantar fasciitis. It's painful, but there's no need for surgery. In a YouTube video, Dr. Donald DeFabio shows you the cure to ask your doctor for.
In the Graston Technique, a physical or operational therapist, athletic trainer, or chiropractor uses a stainless steel instrument to breakdown scar tissue and create elasticity in the foot. This method drives blood into the foot and promotes healing. During a session, a clinician will use the same technique on the calves. This is important, because loose, elastic calves prevent the foot from curling the wrong way. Following the therapy, a clinician will wrap the foot in two types of tape with the goal of taking pressure off the plantar fasciitis.
Dr. DeFabio is located in Berkeley, CA. To find a clinician trained in this method near you, use the Graston Technique search bar.
