Heel Pain

Precision Footcare Service ImageHeel pain is most often caused by plantar fasciitis, which is also known as heel spur syndrome. Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of a ligament that extends from the heel to the toes. When this ligament becomes inflamed, heel pain results.  Inflammation of the achilles tendon often causes pain at the back of the heel. Heel pain can begin very intermittently, but can become progressive and can even spread to other parts of the foot.  Therefore, it is best that heel pain be treated as early as possible, before the pain becomes worse. Abnormal mechanics and overpronation of the foot is the most common cause of plantar fasciitis and achilles tendinitis. Having flat feet or high-arched feet increases the possibility of developing plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis is generally successfully treated with conservative non-surgical methods. These include stretching exercises, medications, padding and strapping, orthotic devices, injection therapy, night splints, and physical therapy. If conservative treatment fails, a small percentage of people will undergo surgical correction.
