What the foot?

March 21, 2018

Our feet are very important. They move us throughout our day and take us to new places, but they can also cause poor movement patterns and pain. I’m not just talking about foot or ankle pain either - our feet can result in pain anywhere along the movement chains in your body - knees, hips, low back, and even neck and shoulder pain.

With 26 bones, 33 joints, and over 100 soft tissue structures in each foot, there are a lot of things that must work together properly to move us throughout our day pain free. When any one of these bones, joints, or soft tissues don’t function properly, it can lead to a chain reaction of events resulting in foot pain and pain throughout the body. One of the most common causes of foot pain is plantar fasciitis. Typically plantar fasciitis causes pain in the heal and along the bottom of the foot (medial arch). Pain is usually severe in the morning and gets a little better as we move around.

Plantar fasciitis can be caused by a variety of factors including sudden increase in activity, obesity, rapid weight gain, improper footwear, work-related stress, and of course, faulty foot and ankle biomechanics. Limited ankle dorsiflexion (movement at the ankle) is one of the most common risk factors for plantar fasciitis. Ankle mobility can be improved easily with foot and ankle adjustments and routine stretching of the calf (gastrocnemius and soleus) muscles. Not all plantar fasciitis cases are as simple as limited ankle dorsiflexion. For the more complicated cases, there are a variety of other treatment options available.

Plantar fasciitis can be treated effectively, without the use of medication and surgery. Keep reading to learn how we can help you get rid of your foot pain!

Mouse Trap

February 28, 2018

Ever feel tightness or knots in that big muscle between your neck and shoulder? Do you have neck pain or headaches? Is it worse on your right side? Is that pain and tightness worse at work or at the end of a long day? If this sounds familiar, you, along with thousands of other desk workers, may be suffering from mouse trap.

96% of people use their computer mouse with their right hand. As you move the mouse around and scroll, your right shoulder elevates slightly. When you do this for multiple hours a day, your trapezius muscle, or trap, (the big one running from the base of your skull, out to your shoulders, and down between your shoulder blades) gets overworked, becomes tight, and starts to develop painful knots or trigger points. These nasty knots and trigger points can cause localized pain, shoulder pain, headaches, and even affect posture. (Try it! Move your mouse around and feel how much that trap moves!)

So amazing! I've been looking for a good chriropractor in KC for years (after having great chiro care in Houston and South Dakota), and haven't been impressed with the couple I've gone to. Dr. Swickard and his staff are fabulous - thorough, efficient, knowledgable, and talented. Dr. Swickard was awesome! So happy to have found chiro care in KC!!!
