Here at McGregor Chiropractic we utilize these typical approaches as well as a unique insight due to Dr. Peterson's past as a long distance runner. Aside from the typical treatment regimen, our office also focuses on the underlying muscles of the arch.

It is also very important to discuss footwear choices, the possibility of orthotics, as well as a long term game plan to limit the chances of the condition returning.
