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
Triggers for heel pain symptoms include sudden increases in physical activities, poor biomechanical movements, gaining weight, or training on specific surfaces. Pain may occur under, around, or at the back of the heel, impacting one or both feet. This pain might develop gradually or might be acute and 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
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
We then create a comprehensive rehabilitation plan aimed at returning you to your favourite activities.
