Plantar Fasciitis and Heel Pain
Heel pain can range from a mild occasional pain to debilitating pain causing you to limp. It is 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
- Plantar fascial tear
- Achilles Tendonitis
- Nerve entrapment
- Tibialis posterior tendonitis or dysfunction
- Heel Spurs
- Tarsal tunnel Syndrome
Diagnosis will be made by the podiatrist 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.
