Do you suffer from heel pain?
While you may not give much thought to your heels, they’re actually quite a complex structure, made up of the largest bone in your foot, as well as ligaments, tendons and a fat pad underneath.
As such, heel pain, also known as Plantar Fasciitis, can be intense and debilitating, requiring detailed assessment and diagnosis. It can occur at any time, whether you’re walking, exercising or even at rest, and should be checked immediately.
Treating Heel Pain
Fortunately, there are many treatment options available for plantar fasciitis. At Solihull Podiatry clinic, we can perform a diagnosis after assessing your heel bone and ligaments. Once we have determined the cause of the problem, our team can help you relieve your pain using taping, orthotics or injections to relieve the pain.
There are a variety of reasons this may happen. Your Chiropodist will be better able to diagnose you after your initial assessment.
Wearing unstable or inappropriate footwear.
If you are obese or overweight.
If you have recently increased your levels of physical activity.
Standing for long periods of time, eg. at work.
Being flat-footed or pronation.
Other reasons include:
Inflammatory conditions such as Bursitis and Arthritis
Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
Typical signs include:
Pain when walking
Throbbing in the heels
Inflammation around the heels
There are a number of options for people who suffer from Plantar fasciitis such as foot massage, cushions/pads, injections, and custom orthotics or insoles. We can also provide better footwear advice to help you in your daily life.
