Heel pain is a very common occurrence for many of our patients who come in to see us. In fact there are more patients who need to see us for heel pain treatment in Martin County than for any other foot problem. Heel pain is also called plantar fasciitis. Heel pain generally involves inflammation of a thick band of tissue that is called the plantar fascia. This tissue runs across the bottom of your foot, and it connects the heel bone to the toes. At our practice we now offer a non-invasive treatment for this inflammation problem called EPAT. Other causes of heel pain can be heel spurs. A heel spur is a protrusion that extends forward on the underside of the heel bone. It will show up on an x-ray and so can be easily diagnosed. Heel spurs are the result of strains on the muscles and ligaments of the foot. This can be caused by running, biomechanical imbalance, obesity, or even by wearing excessively worn shoes. Other treatments for heel pain can include wearing more comfortable shoes, and prescription of custom foot orthotics. Heel pain can also be caused by a patient walking in a specific way that causes over pronation. This results in putting too much pressure on a certain area of the heel.
