Heel Pain Treatment


Heel pain is the general term given to pain experienced in the back and rear of the foot. Pain felt in this part of the foot, is usually a result of an issue elsewhere within the foot. There are many causes, far too many to list, but the most common are; bursitis, blisters, neuroma, plantar fasciitis, leg length difference, tendon tears or ruptures, muscle inflammation, growing pains, and Achilles tendinitis.


Pain in the heel, which does not reduce with movement or massage. The pain can severely affect the patients daily mobility, and quality of life. In younger patients, it often results in withdrawal from sporting activities.


Due to the feet being a complex part of your body, they can not be, and should not be, looked at in isolation. Your feet are placed at the bottom of the skeleton tree. Therefore, any problems within the the lower back, thigh muscles, knee joints, and lower limbs will contribute to your foot pain. Due to this, a condition cannot be solved simply by consultation, and a thorough hands-on assessment is required.

By carrying out a Biomechanical Gait Analysis Assessment, the Podiatrist will consider your foot condition, but also take into account symptoms being experienced further up the skeleton. The assessment will provide an accurate diagnosis, allowing the Podiatrist to prepare a suitable treatment plan, which may include recommended stretches, custom made orthotics, and footwear advice.
