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
The symptoms of heel pain can be triggered by sudden increases in activity, poor biomechanics, increased weight gain or particular training surfaces. The pain can be located under and around the heel as well as at the back of the heel on one or both feet. Often the pain can develop insidiously or can be very acute.
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
Next, we formulate a thorough rehabilitation strategy to help you resume the activities you enjoy.
