HEEL PAIN


Pain and discomfort can occur in any part of the feet or ankles, but it is particularly common in the heel area. Heel pain can flare up frequently, as you put weight on your heel with every step you take, so it's important to seek treatment before the condition worsens.

Heel pain can be caused by a number of different things, such as:

  • A bruise on the heel from stepping on a foreign object, which should heal on its own given time.
  • Plantar fasciitis, wherein the band of tissue that connects the heel to the front of the foot is strained.
  • A heel spur, or calcium deposit, which can be caused by long-term untreated plantar fasciitis.
  • Other nerve or tendon problems.

No matter the cause of heel pain, a trained foot and ankle specialist can conduct a thorough examination to determine a proper course of treatment. In some cases, conservative treatments like stretches or orthotics can help. In more severe cases, medication, immobilization or even surgery may be necessary.

If you suffer from heel pain, the podiatric physicians and surgeons at Ankle & Foot Care Centers can help. Call today to schedule an appointment.
