What are the causes 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
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 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
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
Then we establish a detailed rehabilitation plan to get you back to the activities you love.
