Heel Pain Treatment near Doncaster
Heel pain is the most common condition we treat here at Melbourne Podiatry Clinic and can be caused by many different conditions. It can occur in people of all ages and fitness levels and may be acute or chronic in nature.
What causes Heel Pain?
- Heel spur syndrome
- Plantar fasciitis
- 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.
Treatment for Heel Pain
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.
We have developed a proven program 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
Then we establish a detailed rehabilitation plan to get you back to the activities you love.
