Heel pain is one of the most common and debilitating conditions affecting Americans today.  Yes, it is that big of a problem. 

We are specifically referring to plantar fasciitis.  Why is plantar fasciitis such a problem?
 
When you are in pain, you are less likely to be active and exercise.  You are more likely to become depressed.  It can affect your work, personal life and general well being. 
 
We don't often think of a foot problem being so dramatic, but it is and it is quite common.  If you are suffering make an appointment to be evaluated, diagnosed and treated today!

Heel pain is a very common finding in both children and adults. While there are many external factors that can be linked to the cause of the pain,(flat feet and fancy shoes being two of the common culprits), it is important to remember that damage to the underlying bones, tendons and ligaments can occur.

If you or a loved one has been experiencing pain, it is always a good idea to have a podiatrist evaluate you to determine the source of the pain. This is especially true in children who have not yet reached skeletal maturity. Sever's disease, damage to the heel bone growth plate is often the cause of heel pain in a young athlete.

If caught early, the treatment for this type of injury is generally straightforward and tolerated well, however, an undiagnosed injury to a growth plate can have very serious ramifications. The best way to prevent injury is to be evaluated by a podiatrist so that a custom orthotic can be made. Orthotics can restore function and help alleviate your pain.  Stretching splints and physical therapy can also be very helpful.  Call today for an appointment!
