The old song “The ankle bone connected to the leg bone, the leg bones connected to the knee bone etc.” is a great lyrical illustration of how everything works together.

Mechanical issues of the knee is what chiropractors specialize in. Chiropractors work with the structure of the skeletal system to make sure the body is working as a unit and not as individual parts.

These are the areas that have the biggest impact on the knees immediately.

What is Plantar Fasciitis and do I have it?
My foot hurts what is the problem? How come the bottom of foot hurts when I walk on it?
In order to best answer these questions we must first understand the basics terminology.
Anything that ends in “itis” indicates some kind of inflammation in the body.
Plantar means foot
Fascia means connective tissue that surrounds a muscle group, nerves, blood vessels etc. and can bind these groups together creating a moveable group that can move your finger, toes or other parts as one.
Plantar fasciitis is a very painful inflammatory condition that effects the bottom of the foot. Because the feet carry the weight of our bodies they can get stressed and tweak especially if we are favoring one foot of the other. By shifting your weight more to one side we create stresses in other parts of our body. We shift our weight by compensating due to pain. For the feet this pain can originate in knee issues, hip issues or lower back issues in addition to foot pain as well as other places. Wellness Solutions Chiropractic looks at all these issues and determines the best treatment for your foot pain. We will do a complete exam including X-rays if necessary to determine if there are any underlying causes to your foot pain.
Dr. Amy Wood has personally had plantar fasciitis and was even on crutches for a short time due to the pain. Dr. Amy Wood discovered that by using rock tape, ultrasound and a few other techniques her plantar fasciitis was gone in a few weeks. Wellness Solutions Chiropractic has been treating patients with this debilitating condition and getting great results for many years.
