Plantar Fasciitis and Cryotherapy

Plantar Fasciitis and Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy is a cutting-edge treatment option that harnesses the power of freezing temperatures to effectively address pain and inflammation throughout the entire body. This non-invasive solution offers a safe and natural way to alleviate discomfort externally, targeting various areas of the body. With the help of cryotherapy, individuals can experience relief from a wide range of conditions and enjoy the benefits of reduced pain and inflammation.

In a recent study, researchers conducted a randomized control trial to examine the effectiveness of combining cryotherapy with conventional physiotherapy for treating plantar fasciitis. The study group, known as Group A, received this combination treatment while the control group, referred to as Group B, did not. The results showed that Group A experienced significant relief from plantar fasciitis symptoms and improved function compared to Group B. In addition, both pain levels measured by the NPRS scale and functional disability measured by the FFI scale showed notable improvements in Group A as compared to Group B. This trial highlights the potential benefits of adding cryotherapy to standard physiotherapy in the management of plantar fasciitis.

Pain Relief

For thousands of years, cryotherapy has been utilized as a natural remedy for alleviating a wide range of pain-related issues such as muscle aches and strains. This therapeutic technique involves the use of an advanced device by a certified podiatrist, which emits an intense cold temperature to effectively target and treat the root cause of your distress.

Extreme cold effectively soothes nerves while simultaneously reducing inflammation for as long as the treatment remains in effect. Furthermore, this procedure is pain-free and noninvasive; completed within just one appointment.

Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the thick tissue lining the bottom of your foot that results in painful foot or heel conditions when walking or running, especially at its base or heel.

Plantar fasciitis can be treated in various ways, from medication and physical therapy, to cryosurgery as an innovative approach. Cryosurgery offers long-lasting relief when combined with other therapies.

Increased Flexibility

Your feet help you get around, but when the bottom of your heel hurts after getting up or doing light exercises, it can make life harder than necessary. Weight-bearing activities – which will strengthen bones – become particularly challenging to undertake.

So keeping your feet fit is essential to an active lifestyle – even as we age. And it is advisable to begin practicing plantar fasciitis stretches and exercises immediately in order to minimize discomfort and speed recovery.

Stretches can also help increase flexibility and make muscles, tissues and ligaments more pliant to better withstand strain when running or walking. Speak to your physical therapist about which stretches would best meet your needs.

Reduced Inflammation

Plantar fasciitis affects millions of people each year and is caused by repeated stretching and stress on the plantar fascia.

Symptoms may include pain on the bottom or behind your heel. Your plantar fascia connects your heel bone to each toe bone.

Cryotherapy uses a cryo-needle to rapidly cool an area where inflammation exists, quickly relieving its symptoms. By quickly cooling this sensitive spot, cryotherapy reduces inflamed tissues, relieving pain.

Procedure is generally safe and usually provides good results for patients suffering from chronic plantar fasciitis, with minimal risks and side effects compared to surgery.

A 2018 small study demonstrated that cryoablation reduced pain scores associated with plantar fasciitis by 50% when combined with steroid injections and compensatory fascial strain reduction treatments, though additional research will need to be conducted in order to understand its real effectiveness in alleviating chronic plantar fasciitis or fascia fibromas-related inflammation and pain.

Faster Healing

Cryosurgery for neuromas is an effective, minimally invasive solution that safely destroys nerves causing foot pain. There is minimal risk for major complications.

Cryoprobe therapy uses a small device with a thin tube that creates temperatures below -70 degrees Celsius to place a small “ice ball” within neuromas that kills nerves while stopping their growth.

Neuromas are an extremely painful condition with high levels of pain and inflammation, making traditional therapies such as surgery or cortisone injections ineffective at providing relief. A pain management method called Acupuncture offers an effective yet minimally invasive solution when other therapies have failed.

Healing processes differ depending on tissue type, oxygenation levels, lifestyle factors and wound location. Knowing which factors impact your recovery will allow you to plan accordingly and stay on course. Furthermore, taking measures like orthotics for plantar fasciitis reduction or stretching muscles and ligaments around arches, feet and legs may make an enormous difference to recovery.
