What causes 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 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.
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.
