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
Triggers for heel pain symptoms include sudden increases in physical activities, poor biomechanical movements, gaining weight, or training on specific surfaces. Pain may occur under, around, or at the back of the heel, impacting one or both feet. This pain might develop gradually or might be acute and sudden.
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.
Heel Pain Treatment Programme
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.
