Plantar Fasciitis Massage

Edmonton | Sherwood Park

Plantar Fasciitis is inflammation and irritation of the plantar fascia – the ligament that runs from your heel bone to your toes. It can become painful due to long periods of standing, improper footwear, obesity, overuse, or exercise. Your doctor or massage therapist may recommend a Plantar Fasciitis Massage if you have plantar fasciitis. The deep strokes involved in this treatment help to relieve tension, reduce adhesions, and eliminate pain in the foot.

If you have tender, sore feet or are dealing with plantar fasciitis, a Therapeutic Foot Massage is the right service for you.

Your treatment will begin with a short assessment. Your massage therapist will go over your health history and any issues you want to address. You may or may not be asked to partially undress and lie under the linens on the table.

The modalities your therapist may choose to incorporate are; medium to deep tissue techniques, muscle stripping, cross fibre friction, myofascial release, soft tissue release, scar tissue release, and hydrotherapy.

You may feel some discomfort or tenderness during a therapeutic foot massage. It is important to maintain a dialogue on your comfort levels so your therapist can make adjustments with the pressure and techniques being utilized. Please understand that not all issues require deep tissue work or prolonged deep pressure. Your therapist is trained to identify the source of your issue and treat it as needed.

After the massage, you may feel relaxed and rejuvenated. It’s important to drink plenty of water to help flush out any toxins that were released during the massage. Your therapist may also provide you with some aftercare advice, such as remedial exercises, stretching or self-massage techniques to help facilitate your rehabilitation and progress. A return date for your treatment plan will also be suggested to keep you on track.

Other things you should know about your Plantar Fasciitis Massage appointment:

Expect to feel some discomfort as deep tissue and myofascial release techniques are used to help reduce tension, pain, and adhesions. If your therapist has additional time they will provide therapeutic massage to other immediate areas of concern or for relaxation.

If you’re planning on getting a Therpuetic Foot Massage, here are some important things to keep in mind:

  1. Arrive early: It’s a good idea to arrive a few minutes early to your appointment. This will give you time to fill out any necessary paperwork and get settled in before your treatment begins.
  2. Avoid heavy meals: A full stomach can make it harder for you to relax and may interfere with the treatment. However, an empty stomach can leave you light headed. Try to eat a light meal an hour or two before your appointment.
  3. Drink plenty of water: It’s important to stay hydrated before and after your treatment. Drinking plenty of water can help flush out any toxins released and help prevent soreness.
  4. Dress appropriately: Depending on the type of treatment you have scheduled, you may or may not need to undress to some extent. It’s best to wear loose fitting or “athletic” clothing that you are able to move freely in. Your therapist will instruct you on what should be removed to facilitate the best possible treatment. Always undress to your personal comfort level.
  5. Communicate with your therapist: During your appointment, make sure to keep an open dialogue regarding any discomfort or areas of tension you are experiencing. This will help them make adjustments as needed to ensure that you are getting the most benefit from your treatment.
  6. Take it easy after your appointment: It is important to give your body time to rest and recover after treatment. Avoid intense physical activity or exercise immediately after your treatment and allow your body time to relax and recover.
  7. Follow any post-treatment instructions: Your therapist may provide you with specific instructions or stretches to do after the treatment to help with recovery. It is important to follow these instructions to get the greatest overall benefit.

While plantar fasciitis massage is generally safe, some people may experience temporary soreness or discomfort in the foot following a massage session. Additionally, people with certain medical conditions, such as a blood clot or osteoporosis, should avoid massage therapy.
