The Thomas Protocol
for the treatment of Plantar Fasciitis
2)Trigger Point Stretch
5)Rehab Exercise protocol
Dr. Thomas’s begins with a light massage of the area to help stimulate blood flow and proprioception. He then uses a trigger point stretch technique to increase flexibility and promote optimal joint function. Next, Graston Technique is utilized to assist the body in the breaking down of built up scar tissue. A ice massage is used to decrease inflammation and a rehab schedule is implemented to enhance the healing process. KT taping is then utilized to support the surrounding area. Lastly, a chiropractic adjustment is performed if any restrictions are present.
