Heel Pain

At Foot Foundation, we specialize in addressing heel pain, a prevalent issue that can significantly impact your daily life.

Understanding Heel Pain

Heel pain often presents as a stabbing sensation or persistent ache, especially after periods of rest or increased activity. Conditions such as plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, Achilles tendonitis, or stress fractures can contribute to this discomfort. One of the primary causes of heel pain is plantar fasciitis, characterized by inflammation in the band of tissue connecting your heel bone to your toes.

Treatment Options

At Foot Foundation, we offer a range of treatments tailored to alleviate heel pain effectively:

  1. Orthotic Solutions: Customized orthotic inserts or footwear modifications provide targeted support and relieve pressure on the affected area. These solutions help in redistributing weight and reducing strain on the heel.

  2. Manual Therapy: Our skilled therapists employ specialized techniques to alleviate muscle tension, improve flexibility, and reduce pain in the affected heel.

  3. Therapeutic Exercises: Tailored exercises and stretching routines help strengthen muscles, reduce inflammation, and enhance flexibility in the feet and calves.

  4. Strapping and Compression Sleeves: Utilizing strapping techniques and compression sleeves can offer support and reduce discomfort during daily activities.

  5. Footwear Modifications: Advising on appropriate footwear and making modifications can significantly reduce heel pain. Proper footwear ensures optimal support and comfort.

  6. Medical Intervention: In certain cases, anti-inflammatory medications or corticosteroid injections might be recommended to alleviate pain and reduce inflammation.

  7. Surgical Options (if necessary): Surgery is considered only when conservative treatments fail to provide relief. Procedures aim to release tension or repair damaged tissue causing the heel pain.
