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
Symptoms of heel pain often arise from abrupt changes in physical activity, incorrect biomechanics, weight gain, or specific types of training grounds. This pain may present itself underneath or around the heel, or at the heel's back, affecting either one or both feet. The onset of the pain might be gradual or quite sudden.
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.
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.
