Plantar Fasciitis and Heel Pain

Heel pain can range from a mild occasional pain to debilitating pain causing you to limp. Its a very common complaint we see as podiatrists, and the most important step is to accurately diagnose what the pain is and what tissue is affected.

Only then can accurate treatment and management be undertaken.

The most common causes are: 

Plantar
Fasciitis
Achilles
Tendonitis
Tibialis
posterior tendonitis or dysfunction
Heel
Spurs

A diagnosis will be made after a thorough assessment and history is taken. We may then refer you for further imaging, x-rays, ultrasounds or scans. 

Once we establish the cause and an accurate diagnosis, we will work with you to heal and manage the cause of the injury to prevent future reoccurrence.
