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
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
Next, we formulate a thorough rehabilitation strategy to help you resume the activities you enjoy.
