X-ray, MRI and CT scans are the only ways to properly diagnose a heel spur. Although in most cases the pain is caused by inflammation of the plantar fascia or plantar fasciitis at the heel and therefore the treatment is very similar.
After conducting a complete patient history, physical and possible radiological assessment, your podiatrist will recommend a treatment that aims to reduce the pain at the heel, construct a return to activity program and prevent reoccurrence. This may include:
- Rest, ice and anti-inflammatories
- Massage, stretching and dry needling
- Shockwave Therapy
- Shoewear advice
- Running/exercise modification
- Training advice
