What is the origin of Heel Pain?
Heel pain is a symptom that can arise from many causes including:
- Plantar fasciitis
- Heel spur syndrome
- Bruising of the calcaneus
- Achilles tendinitis/tendinosis
- Stress fractures
- Nerve compression
Symptoms of heel pain often arise from abrupt changes in physical activity, incorrect biomechanics, weight gain, or specific types of training grounds. This pain may present itself underneath or around the heel, or at the heel's back, affecting either one or both feet. The onset of the pain might be gradual or quite sudden.
At Melbourne Podiatry Clinic, we frequently address a variety of heel pain cases and are recognised for our successful relief methods. Our podiatrists, trained in specific diagnosis techniques, will identify your unique heel pain type and develop a personalised treatment plan. Over-the-counter options often fall short in providing durable relief and preventing future pain.
Heel Pain Treatment Programme
We have developed a proven programme that provides a step-by-step process, rather than a quick fix. A comprehensive assessment of the location and cause of your pain is conducted followed by a gait analysis to assess the biomechanical involvement in your heel pain. We then work closely with you over a 4-week period to treat the symptoms to provide pain relief and enhance healing:
- Soft tissue therapies
- Shockwave therapy
- Self stretching/strengthening programs
- Dry needling
Then we establish a detailed rehabilitation plan to get you back to the activities you love.
