Sofia suffered from Plantar Fasciitis, a condition in which the band of tissue that connects the heel bone to the toes becomes inflamed and causes stabbing pain near the heel and foot.
When we first met Sofia, she was experiencing pain at a level 8 (on a scale of 1-10). Sofia had tried stretches and different exercises to manage the pain but still struggled performing day-to-day activities that required being on her feet. “I was in pain all the time. Even if I was working sitting I still had pain.” Sofia started experiencing gradual weight gain due to the inability to exercise and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Sofia’s Treatment Experience
Following Sofia’s first treatment, we were able to successfully reduce her her pain from a level 8 to a level 3. There can be many contributing factors to Plantar Fasciitis pain so we thoroughly treat the bottom of the foot extending from the heel to the toes as well as the Achilles’ and up to the calf.
When Sofia arrived for her 3rd treatment she reported being completely out of pain!
Sofia considers the results that she’s been able to achieve “magic!” as she is now able to walk, work and exercise as she use to without any pain. “I was in pain all the time but after this, my life is back to normal.” Prior to visiting One Wellness, Sofia remembers the fear she felt waking up in the morning to take the first step out of bed but now she’s able to live the healthy lifestyle she’s wanted without pain.
