Heel pain is a common problem we treat at Redlands Podiatry. It can have a large impact on your quality of life. Heel pain can make going about your daily activities difficult, prevent you from exercising and in extreme cases can make all walking uncomfortable.
Heel pain can be caused by several different conditions. In adults, common causes are plantar fasciitis (heel spurs), Achilles' Tendonitis and referred pain. A common cause of heel pain in children is Severe's Disease.
The first step in treating heel pain is to correctly diagnose the condition and other less common causes of heel pain considered to determine the causative factors of the pain.
Your Podiatrist can then structure a treatment plan to relieve your heel pain and get you back to your activities quickly.
