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.
Melbourne Podiatry Clinic handles numerous heel pain cases and is known for effectively providing relief. Our podiatrists, with specialised training, can precisely identify your heel pain type and create a tailored treatment plan for you. Generic over-the-counter remedies typically fail to offer lasting relief and prevent pain recurrence.
Treatment for Heel Pain
Our approach involves a well-established programme that focuses on a gradual process instead of an instant solution. We start with a thorough evaluation of your pain's location and cause, along with a gait analysis to understand the biomechanical factors contributing to your heel pain. Over four weeks, we collaborate with you to address the symptoms, offering relief from pain and promoting recovery:
- Soft tissue therapies
- Shockwave therapy
- Self stretching/strengthening programs
- Dry needling
Next, we formulate a thorough rehabilitation strategy to help you resume the activities you enjoy.
