What leads to 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.
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've crafted a proven programme that emphasises a methodical approach rather than a quick remedy. Initially, we conduct a detailed analysis of your pain's location and source, accompanied by a gait analysis to determine biomechanical aspects of your heel pain. Following this, we work in close partnership with you for a period of four weeks, focusing on symptom treatment to alleviate pain and facilitate healing:
- 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.
