Seattle Chiropractor Helps Plantar Fasciitis

People who suffer from plantar fasciitis know how painful it can be and how disruptive it can be to their daily lifestyle. Fortunately, plantar fasciitis does not typically require surgery for correction. However, many people will try remedies such as icing and resting their feet to alleviate symptoms as well as taking over-the-counter pain relief medications. Although these remedies help reduce their pain, it does not help correct the condition itself.

Many studies have shown that chiropractic care on the ankle and feet joints can aid in the recovery of motion and greatly reduces the pain felt on the bottom of the foot. Since chiropractors aim to address the root cause of symptoms instead of focusing on just the pain relief (which is no doubt a goal), they aim to target the restrictions along the ankle joints that cause the tightness and strain along the foot. By regaining the full range of motion in the free moving portions of the foot and ankle, the symptoms of plantar fasciitis are greatly reduced and the overall function of the feet and ankle are increased.

Why Dr. Walia’s technique is so effective:

Dr. Walia, your Seattle chiropractor, uses the highly researched, low-force and precise Activator technique. Although traditional chiropractic is also effective, Dr. Walia’s technique is very precise and can target the smaller joints that need to be adjusted in plantar fasciitis that is tougher for traditional chiropractic adjustments. Dr. Walia has had success using this technique to treat plantar fasciitis on various patients including marathon runners, golfers and athletes.

Low-Force Chiropractic Treatment for Whiplash Injuries by Seattle Chiropractor

Seattle Chiropractor
You hear a lot about whiplash these days. Some people just assume it is one of those made up injuries that people use after a car accident. The fact of the matter is that it actually can be a very painful injury, which is why whiplash treatment is so important. Many people who suffer from this injury did not even get it from a car accident. The best way to treat this injury is to visit a chiropractor. However, because the severity and cases of whiplash can vary, the exact treatment that your chiropractor will do can be different.

There are different treatment methods that are used more than others, so this can give you an idea of what you can expect. One of the most common whiplash treatment options is called spinal manipulation. This actually realigns your spine so your spinal joints are able to regain their natural movement. This can be done a few different ways. Your chiropractor either will use slow and steady movements of your head toward the direction of the injury or use quick movements. Both work well, but it just depends on the patient and the chiropractor typically.

Another whiplash treatment option is to use muscle stimulation or relaxation. It depends on the type of whiplash injury for which technique will be used. For instance, if your muscle seems weak, then your chiropractor will try to stimulate the muscle. On the other hand, if your muscles are tense, then he will go with relaxation. When they need to be relaxed, this is accomplished by stretching. Getting the right treatment really can make all the difference because you will feel so much better. When your whiplash is not really treated, but covered up, your pain could come back in a few months or even a few years.

Although there are a lot of people who do not believe in whiplash as an actual injury, anyone who has had it before knows otherwise. The pain can be so unbearable if the injury does not receive the proper attention it needs. This is because the muscles continue either tensing or weakening. Receiving whiplash treatment from a chiropractor is the best thing you can do for the situation because it actually will work at curing the injury. Another great benefit is that the treatment is completely natural, which means there are no medications. To schedule an appointment call 206 782-9762 or for more information visit

Why Choose Low Force Chiropractic?

Seattle Chiropractor

With all of the different types of chiropractic methods out there, why choose a low force method? While there are many different types of chiropractic methods, there are countless reasons why you should choose a low force method. The method of chiropractic practiced by Dr. Jas Walia is the Activator Method. This low force method is effective because of its precise and exact adjustments. The Activator only adjusts the vertebrae that need to be manipulated. This is especially important in patients that have recently been injured or in a car accident. After an injury, your body is still fragile and is prone to be re-injured or injured worse. The Activator Method is a very effective way to gently heal an injury.

If you have recently been injured in a car accident or suffer from headaches, back pain or neck pain, call us to schedule an appointment with Seattle Chiropractor, Dr. Jas Walia.
