Heel Pain

Symptoms, Treatments and More!

Heel Pain is generally the result of faulty biomechanics (gait abnormalities) that place too much stress on the heel bone and the soft tissues attached to it. It may also result from an acute injury, chronic repetitive stresses, wearing worn footwear, or being overweight. Once diagnosis has been established by x-ray findings and symptoms, treatment can begin. In severe cases, a cortisone injection is very effective in relieving the pain. Milder cases can be treated with physical therapy modalities and taping. Oral anti-inflammatory medications may be prescribed as well. For chronic heel pain due to abnormal walking, orthotics are very effective in eliminating pain and preventing recurrence once the pain has subsided. We now use Radiowaves to eradicate heel pain which is persistent. Call our office today for more info from Dr. Dunetz
