What causes 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
Heel pain symptoms can emerge due to sudden spikes in physical activities, improper biomechanics, an increase in weight, or training on certain surfaces. This pain may be felt under the heel, around it, or at its back, and can affect either or both feet. The pain can develop slowly over time or appear suddenly and acutely.
At Melbourne Podiatry Clinic we deal with a high volume of cases of heel pain and have a proven track record in providing relief. Our podiatrists are specifically trained to diagnose the exact type of your heel pain to tailor a specific treatment plan to best suit you! Over-the-counter treatments simply do not provide long lasting relief if you want to prevent the pain from returning.
Treatment for Heel Pain
We've crafted a proven programme that emphasises a methodical approach rather than a quick remedy. Initially, we conduct a detailed analysis of your pain's location and source, accompanied by a gait analysis to determine biomechanical aspects of your heel pain. Following this, we work in close partnership with you for a period of four weeks, focusing on symptom treatment to alleviate pain and facilitate healing:
- Soft tissue therapies
- Shockwave therapy
- Self stretching/strengthening programs
- Dry needling
Following that, we devise an in-depth rehabilitation plan to enable you to get back to doing what you love.
