Don’t suffer with heel pain – contact us for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.
Heel pain is not normal. Ever. If you are experiencing heel pain that is severe, starts suddenly, keeps you from walking normally, or is resulting in redness and swelling, you should seek help. Here at Abbott Foot & Ankle Clinic, we proudly serve The Blue Mountains, Ontario area with quality solutions for foot pain. We don’t have a one-size-fits-all treatment plan because there are many different heel pain causes, and what the best course of action is depends on an accurate diagnosis. Here are the most common heel pain causes that we look for:
- Bursitis – The fluid-filled sac called bursa located between the Achilles tendon and heel bone can become irritated and inflamed.
- Plantar Fasciitis – The plantar fascia ligament can become damaged from too much pressure on your feet and become inflamed. This is the most common of heel pain causes.
- Achilles Tendonitis – The Achilles tendon attaches the calf muscle to the heel. It can become injured and inflamed due to overuse.
- Sprain or Strain – Physical activities can cause anything from a minor to severe sprain or strain.
There are also rarer heel pain causes, such as reactive arthritis, osteochondrosis, and fractures that we will address if we feel these could be involved. Whether your heel pain is moderate or disabling, you can count on us to provide you with a correct diagnosis and a treatment plan so you can get back to your daily activities without pain as soon as possible. Contact us today to schedule an appointment for any foot issues you are having.
