Heel pain is a common foot complaint that many of us may encounter at some point in our lives. This becomes increasingly true as we age as the wear and tear on our feet from many miles of walking and running begins to take its inevitable toll. In some cases, heel pain can make any weight-bearing activity from walking to standing for long periods uncomfortable or even agonising. If you have been experiencing heel pain, Shepparton Foot Clinic may be able to help with some of the latest and most effective treatment methods.
One common cause of heel pain is a painful condition known as plantar fasciitis, which is also known as Heel Spur Syndrome. Plantar Fasciitis involves inflammation of the a ligament, the Plantar Fascia, that runs from the heel to the base of the toes along the underside of your foot. This ligament can become strained and inflamed anywhere along its length and therefore cause pain under the heel or arch of the foot, particularly after rest. While the pain caused by this condition can be at times seem unbearable, it can also be easily treated using custom orthotics or even some over the counter pre-made insoles. When you come in for treatment of your heel pain at our Shepparton clinic, we will assess and diagnose your foot pain to help you select the proper course of action. While we are known for making high quality custom orthotics, we also provide some of the latest treatment options available, such as Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy and Low-Intensity Pulsed Ultrasound. Both methods, among others, may be used as a part of your heel pain treatment at our Shepparton clinic.
