Plantar Fasciitis


Patient: Woman 55 years
Occupation: Mother
Pain: 5/10

Complaint: Low Back and Right Leg Pain – The pain was around the sacroiliac area, groin, inner knee and arch of foot.

This pain was the result of dropped arches, with the left foot taking more load than the right foot.

Treatment: Initially deep Massage and Spinal Manipulation to ease the muscle shortening and pain.

This Lady was referred for Biomechanical assessment and had Orthotics specially made.

Prognosis: Excellent – The Orthotics maintain the arches of the foot.

David Drysdale has worked as an Osteopath in the West End of Glasgow since 1996. David combines a wide range of techniques when treating a patient, ranging from Osteopathic Manipulation, Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Cranio-Sacral Therapy, Nutrition and Exercise. Treatments are tailored for the Patient. It is understood that some people simply do not like osteopathic manipulation, while others like Deep Tissue Massage, or benefit from Cranio-Sacral Therapy. There are different ways of treating people who are in pain, and providing the treatment that works for you is very important. Osteopathy is well known for treating Headaches, Neck & Back Pain, but many other conditions such as migraines, frozen shoulder and arthritis can all respond well to good Osteopathic treatment.

Many Thanks…………….. Davy Drysdale
