Heel pain is generally caused by overuse of the foot – not by an injury. Pain often is a result of faulty biomechanics of the foot, which can be treated using prescription orthotics. Heel pain can also be caused by a heel spur or plantar fasciitis. This condition occurs when there is an inflammation of the ligaments that join the heels and toes. There are many different types of conservative, nonsurgical treatments, for heel pain. These treatments include night splints, orthotic devices, pain medications, and physical therapy. Arthroscopic surgery is reserved as a last option, when heel pain is resistant to these different types of treatments. Sometimes it helps to wear shoes that provide your foot with more support. If you are having a problem with your weight, weight loss may also help to ease the problem. Diagnosis may include x-rays or MRIs, as well as examination by our podiatrist.
