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.
At Melbourne Podiatry Clinic we deal with a high volume of cases of heel pain and have a proven track record in providing relief. Our podiatrists are specifically trained to diagnose the exact type of your heel pain to tailor a specific treatment plan to best suit you! Over-the-counter treatments simply do not provide long lasting relief if you want to prevent the pain from returning.
Treatment for Heel Pain
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.
