Heel Problems

Get any Foot Pain Evaluated and Treated

heel pain relief

You put a lot of miles on your feet every day and most of the time your feet can take it. Running on hard surfaces during sports or improper fitting shoes can cause foot irritation and heel pain.

Heel pain can have a variety of causes. You should come into our office for a foot exam to find out the cause. We can test for tenderness and swelling and we examine your step to help determine foot conditions involving the heel. Often we find that an X-Ray will identify bone spurs that are pressing on tissues.

Plantar Fasciitis is the inflammation of the tissue band or the fascia connecting the heel bone and the toes. Pain may start mildly initially and then become worse. Often times patients complain of pain when getting out of bed in the morning.

Our practice is to try to treat problems conservatively. We have exercises, medications and other treatment plans that may solve the problem. It is important to get treated early so call us for an appointment sooner rather than later when these issues become harder to treat.
