Are you suffering from heel pain?

Heel Pain | Healthy Life Foot Clinic

Does this sound like you – “I get out of bed in the morning & can’t put my heel to the ground. Eventually I can stand but I have to really limp. Eventually it feels like the foot loosens up & the pain becomes less. But then I sit down for a while, get up again & my heel hurts all over again. What’s wrong?”

If you have been experiencing heel pain, then you’ve come to the right place for advice on what’s wrong, what to do & how to get rid of your heel pain.So most importantly, if you have heel pain, don’t ignore it. If you’ve had heel pain for more than a few weeks, get it sorted because we know that your pain is probably not going to go away by itself. Now, if you’d like to read more about heel pain, click HERE but you may have developed something called plantar fasciitis – a strained ligament under your heel bone.

So what can I do about it? Great question. Try these two simple steps:
1. roll the arch of your foot over a frozen drink bottle – this helps stretch the ligament & reduce inflammation
2. if your shoes are 12 months or older, replace them to increase support
If this does not resolve the pain over 1-2 weeks, call Healthy Life Foot Clinic or make an appointment now by clicking on the “Make an Appointment” button.

What to expect at your consultation

When you see one of our Podiatrist’s at Healthy Life Foot Clinic, you’ll not only feel welcomed but confident in their care.

We’ll initially take the time to learn about you and your problem and how it’s affected you and what it’s stopping you from doing. We will then take a thorough history and perform a detailed examination to determine what’s wrong and the cause of your problem.

Part of the examination will involve observation of your walking which may also include the use of video or Gaitscan (this measures the pressure applied under your feet). We may also refer you for further xrays or ultrasound if indicated.

Finally, we will give you a plan which will clearly detail what the problem is, why it’s there and what we will do to get you back to doing what you love as quickly as possible. Treatment will vary according to your problem but may include a combination of hands on therapy (foot mobilisation and dry needling), strapping, exercise, footwear advice, laser, orthotic therapy and general foot care.
