What causes heel pain?

There are many causes for heel pain. They range from simple mechanical issues to complex metabolic diseases.

One of the most common reasons for heel pain is faulty foot structure. For example, flat feet or high-arched feet, wearing non-supportive footwear on hard, flat surfaces, or even obesity can cause heel pain. Plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, arthritis, or a stress fracture can all be contributing factors for heel pain.

Because there are many different causes, it is recommended that you visit Gotham Footcare so that we may properly evaluate your condition, diagnose its exact cause, and provide you the best treatment.

What is the treatment for heel pain?

Most people suffering from heel pain recover with conservative non-surgical treatments. At Gotham Footcare the following techniques can be used for treating heel pain.

  • Plantar Fascia-Specific Stretching Techniques.
  • Anti-Inflammatory Medication.
  • Physical therapy to calm the inflammatory process.
  • Recommended shoe gear (both dress and athletic) that we individually match to each patient’s foot type, body type, and activities.
  • Custom orthotic devices are made using a state-of-the-art laser scanner.These devices are made to fit either your dress or athletic shoes to help distribute pressure across your feet more evenly and correct the underlying structural abnormalities.

In some cases, injection therapy is used to help reduce the inflammation and relieve pain.
