Hi everybody it’s Doctor Blake Kalkstein from
Doctors Adolph and Kalkstein Chiropractic, got a really cool case for you. Middle-aged woman, athlete was working out,
felt a pop pull in the bottom of her heel, and we’re gonna actually co-manage this case
with an orthopedic and I wanted to show you our setup for it. We’re going to some stim and some ice and
some ultrasound, and it’s just unique case that we don’t see very often. So I want to give you guys a little sneak
peek into that. So Megan our intern is helping us out, and
so the pain is, the pain is felt mainly here in the heel. She was bouncing around kind of doing toe
raises and felt a burning pulling sensation here. So we did a brief exam on her, we’re going
to show you how to set up the treatment. We’re going to do a stim pad here, and a stim
pad here, and shoot the stim straight across, ice bag underneath, and then afterwards we’re
going to show you how we do ultrasound for a heel like this. So Megan go ahead and set it up. So it’s a unique case, you know most people
think we’re neck and back pain specialists, but this particular patient has had come to
us with left-sided plantar fascia from running and we helped her. She was going to PT, she was going to podiatrist,
ortho, and no result. She came over to see us and we fixed her pretty
good, so she’s had the most results ever with coming to see us. So now we’ve got her setting up for just a
unique case, you know, we’re good at necks, we’re good at backs, but with our sports medicine
background being the chiropractor for the Orioles we see a lot of cool little like sports
injuries. I’m a running doctor so I will treat a lot
of runners and athletes that way. And so it’s cool, you know, how many chiropractors
get to see some of this cool stuff. And we’re able to help out a lot even people
than just you know your typical neck pain back pain stuff. So that’s the setup we’re going to do right
now here for some ice and stim. We’re going to pause the video and we’ll be
back to show you the ultrasound. Thanks guys
Alright we’re back we just finished 15 minutes of stim an ultrasound and now, where’s that
goop, here we go, so we’re doing some ultrasound right over the heel. And ultrasound is a deep heat modality. The sound waves go into your body and bounce
off the hardest substance, which is usually bone, the sound waves going down me the sound
waves coming back up. Say more up here, yeah. And they rub together to create internal heat. And this is a great way to bring fresh blood
to the area, help promote the healing process, can be a deep heat source which can be relaxation. So right now we’re working, working diagnosis
on this case is inflamed bursitis of the heel, so its just bursitis, so we did ice and stim
to kind of reduce some inflammation locally and then we’re using some ultrasound for some
deep heat treatment. And so this will go on for five minutes and
the patient’s not going to feel much just the wand moving over with the ultrasound gliding
over the heel. You shouldn’t feel a lot when you do ultrasound. You might feel a little burning or a warm
sensation, that’s not uncommon. And so we’re going to pause here and we’ll
come back and we’ll show you how we adjust the foot and ankle for this type of treatment. Bye. Hey guys welcome back. So we did ultrasound we did stim, we’re dealing
with little heel bursitis, a unique case that not many chiropractors get to see but being
our sports medicine background and the chiropractor of the Orioles, all the runners that I work
with, we can just see some cool he’ll stuff. So you saw stim and ice, you saw ultrasound,
Amy how’d that feel? Good, real good. Ya, and so we’re going to show you how we
adjust the foot and ankle. I’m also going, I missed the trash can, I
also like to when I’m dealing with the lower extremity issue I also like to adjust the
pelvis and the knees and the hips. You know everything’s lined up biomechanically
we have an easier gait when we’re walking, there’s less pressure on that heel. So we’re going to adjust the mid-foot and
do, we do a little mobilization on the calcaneus. Relax this for me Amy. Good. Squeezing ya? When you squeeze, that’s when you, ya. Not there though but just on that heel part. So we went in, and we’re just doing a little
calcaneus mobilization and I guess you were too much pressure on the heel foot. She barked at me. Good. Right through there hunh? Yeah so we adjusted mid-foot and the talus
joint and we just mobilize the calcaneus. So that’s a treatment we’re going to do for
her. We’re also going to adjust her low back in
her knees and her hips but you guys have seen that a thousand times. So if you have any questions about heel pain,
if you’re runner or an athlete, leave a comment to this video and I’ll see you guys on Wednesday. Thanks for watching.

  1. I find myself continually looking forward to these videos. Keep up the great work! Do you have any contacts in Sydney or San Diego?

  2. when I roll my shoulders around they make loud cracking sounds and feel as though they are moving quite a lot, what do you think is responsible for this?

  3. I did a cartwheel and landed on my left heel. I've been in pain for 3 days now. I was drunk and my nephews and nieces were doing cartwheels so I thought I'm 10 years old and indestructible but no I'm 40 years old and don't bounce back like I used to.

  4. what parameters do you use for ultrasound? For subacute and acute tendinopathy?
    Why do you do ice, and then heat modality? It contradicts each other.

  5. Every time I get done running long distance, and sit down my heels ache extremely bad very deep. I'm 15 years old and run regularly 2 miles a day. Any suggestions?

  6. i have a broken ankle i never got surgery for(doctor recommended i didnt) want to go to more rehab for it because its still big

  7. If I run any longer than 20-25 minutes I get sharp pain in the bottom of my foot. Not in the heel, but about halfway between the heel and big toe.

    I have flat feet and I've been wearing orthotics for about a month but I haven't noticed any difference. Any suggestions?
    Edit: not sure if this also adds to it, but my right foot has been pointed about 45 degrees outwards my entire life.

  8. It's probably plantar fasciitis if her pain is on the medial tubercle of the calcaneus. Plus seems to have a shortened longitudinal arch

  9. Plantar fasciitis happens a lot. The cure is to stretch as soon as you wake. Do this for 5 minutes on each foot by pushing against wall and dropping foot down flat and stretching. I also don't walk around with bare feet in the winter, seems to hurt more in the cold. Calve raises also help, this coming from a guy that is 57 and still trians 4 to 5 times a week in weight lifting and cardio.

  10. I broke my right foot before and when I walk for good amount of time my foot will hurt bad and it gets hard to walk but my parents or my brother never broke there foot and it tacks them longer for their foot to hurt after walking for awhile should I go to a chiropractor or what should I do
