Relief from Heel Pain: Specialized Care at Our Clinic

Heel pain is a common complaint that can significantly impact mobility and quality of life. At Our Clinic, we specialize in diagnosing and treating heel pain with expertise and compassion, offering comprehensive care to help our patients find relief and get back on their feet.

Understanding Heel Pain

Heel pain can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

Plantar Fasciitis : This is one of the most common causes of heel pain, characterized by inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot, connecting the heel to the toes.

Achilles Tendonitis: Inflammation of the Achilles tendon, the large tendon that connects the calf muscles to the heel bone, can cause pain and stiffness in the back of the heel.

Heel Spurs: These are bony protrusions that develop on the underside of the heel bone, often associated with plantar fasciitis or other foot conditions.

Stress Fractures: Hairline fractures or small cracks in the heel bone can cause localized pain and tenderness.

Symptoms of Heel Pain

The symptoms of heel pain may include:

Pain or tenderness in the bottom or back of the heel, especially with the first steps in the morning or after prolonged periods of rest.

Swelling, redness, or inflammation around the heel area.

Difficulty bearing weight on the affected foot.

Sharp or stabbing pain with activity or pressure on the heel.

Comprehensive Treatment Options

At Our Clinic, we offer a variety of treatment options for heel pain, tailored to each patient’s specific needs and the underlying cause of their condition. Treatment may include:

Rest and Ice: Resting the affected foot and applying ice packs to the heel can help reduce pain and inflammation.

Stretching and Exercise: Gentle stretching exercises for the calves, Achilles tendon, and plantar fascia can help improve flexibility and reduce strain on the heel.

Orthotic Devices: Custom orthotic inserts or shoe modifications may be prescribed to provide support and cushioning for the heel and arch of the foot.

Physical Therapy: A structured physical therapy program may be recommended to strengthen the muscles of the foot and ankle and improve overall biomechanics.

Medications: Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or corticosteroid injections may be prescribed to reduce pain and inflammation.

Shockwave Therapy: Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) may be used to stimulate healing and reduce pain in chronic cases of heel pain.

Surgical Intervention: In severe cases of heel pain that do not respond to conservative treatments, surgical procedures such as plantar fascia release or heel spur removal may be considered.
