Heel pain is one of the most common foot problems seen in our clinics. Patients will complain of pain with the first steps taken in the morning or after sitting for a period of time. After walking for a while the pain seems to reduce. Because there are many potential causes it is important to have this condition examined and diagnosed early.
Heel pain, whatever the cause, really interferes with you everyday activities. Commonly patients come to our clinics weeks or months after the pain has begun and only after they have tried their own therapies. This makes this condition a chronic condition (long term).
If examined and diagnosed early, then treatment options such as wearing supportive shoes, and custom fitted orthotic insoles can manage this condition with a high success rate.
If you feel you are experiencing heel pain, please don't hesitate to contact us today.
