Why Do I Have Heel Pain?

 

Hobart heel pain clinic was established with offering an effective treatment for many common and complex heel pain conditions. Heel pain is one of the most common foot complaints experienced by kids, adults, and athletes.  Heel pain is a term that we give to a number of conditions that can cause pain surrounding the heel bone. It is mainly characterised by the location of pain, our patients usually describe pain on the bottom, behind or on the sides of the heel.

Common Conditions Around The Heel:

 

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Achilles Tendonitis
  • Heel Spurs
  • Heel Fracture
  • Nerve Entrapment
  • Joint Impingement

 

 

Plantar Fasciitis

 

One of the most common injuries to the heel is Plantar Fasciitis which is a persistent heel problem affecting people of all ages. 1 in 10 people will develop plantar fasciitis in their lifetime. The plantar fascia is a ligament that runs from your heel bone along the sole of your foot to support your arch. It is crucial to standing, walking and running, and it is under strain a lot of the time which means if something is not quite right it can become thickened, inflamed and degenerative.

 

 

Plantar Fascia Antomy

 

 

Morning heel pain is a very common problem and occurs most often in people suffering from plantar fasciitis and heel spurs. The heel pain is usually at its worst when you first get out of bed or when you get up from sitting/resting for a period of time.

 

 

Heel Spurs

 

A heel spur is a bony growth usually coming from underneath the heel bone, (calcaneus bone). They are often caused by excessive overuse and chronic inflammation where the connective tissue structures attach to the area of the heel bone.  Heel spurs can occur alone but are often related to underlying issues with other problems of the foot such as plantar fasciitis. Often a heel spur can be treated without drugs, injections or surgery. An experienced assessment, diagnosis and correct treatment plan by a podiatrist can quickly get on top of your heel pain symptoms.
