Plantar Fasciitis

Inflammation Along the Bottom of Your Foot Can Cause Heel Pain

One of the most common injuries related to sports that we see at Smith Chiropractic is Plantar Fasciitis. The injury can occur when people run for long periods of time, have high arches, falling arches, or are flat-footed. The most common complaint from Plantar Fasciitis is a burning, stabbing, or aching pain in the heel or foot.

Shrugging and Hamstring Stretching Techniques

Simple exercises for neck pain and tight hamstrings: I was going over some old documents in my office the other day when I came across these.  They were articles I wrote for the Independent Press back in 2001 and 2004.  The advice still applies today, so I hope you’ll take heed and follow some of the information I provide!

What Our Patients Say

Paul G.
auto accident
“I was not a stranger to chiropractic; I had seen two or three doctors previous to the accident. But it was at this time that I had the great good fortune to meet and be treated by Dr. Patrick Smith. Dr. Smith is an extraordinary diagnostician and superb practitioner of his science and art. As pain and stiffness worsened Pat developed a course of treatment that was, and is, most effective in keeping me mobile, flexible and almost, but not entirely, pain free.”
Kay L.
shoulder replacement
“Treatment at Smith Chiropractic has been unerringly professional, kind and so highly intelligent that my 40 years of hospital work has led me to make Smith Chiropractic my first stop whenever I need to consider surgery or medical care or make medical decisions.”
Cindi P. (parent)
sports injuries
“Dr. Smith has treated many of my children's injuries from recovery after broken bones, shoulder tendonitis, pinched nerves, hip flexor problems, and a torn calf muscle. His deep knowledge of how to treat athletes has allowed them to play through their injuries, rather than taking a significant amount of time off from their sport, along with his ability to understand and quickly diagnose a problem, in my opinion, has prevented more severe issues. ”
