Some common causes of heel pain include sprains and strains, tendonitis of the achilles tendon, plantar fasciitis, fractures, and even arthritis. Because the causes of chronic heel pain can be so varied and nuanced, it is always best to seek the help of an experienced podiatrist who understands the inner machinations of the foot and can provide knowledgeable insight into your heel disorder.

Sprains, strains, and fractures that occur in the foot or heel can range from minor to severe and are typically the result of a single traumatic incident, though repeated stress can aggravate these conditions and make them worse. Treatment for these types of conditions can range from over the counter medication and rest to surgical intervention for severe fractures. It is always best to seek immediate diagnosis by a professional if a fracture is suspected, as these types of injuries require urgent treatment.
Achilles tendonitis is typically caused by overuse of the achilles tendon that results in inflammation and pain. As with tendonitis in other parts of the body, rest and anti-inflammatory measures in conjunction with physical therapy may be the best solution. Our experienced podiatrists can help you understand your treatment options, so you can make informed decisions regarding your therapy and recovery.
Plantar fasciitis is a relatively common heel disorder that manifests when the plantar fascia ligament is damaged. This is often the result of repeated stress in conjunction with lack of recovery or effective stretching and can cause stiffness and pain. Physical therapy can help patients with plantar fasciitis learn how to properly strengthen and stretch this ligament, as well as the leg muscles and tendons in the lower leg to help prevent future re-injury. Anti-inflammatory medication or steroid injections can provide relief while you rest and recover.
