Do you suffer from heel pain?
Heel pain, also known as Plantar Fasciitis, can involve extreme discomfort or pain in or around the heel area. As the heel is the largest bone in the foot the pain can be significant and should be checked immediately.
At Central Podiatry Clinic in Birmingham 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.
Treating Heel Pain
Plantar fasciitis can occur when walking and running, doing exercise or even when you are stationary. Depending on the cause of your pain we can provide different treatments including taping, orthotics or special 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
