Heel Pain & Plantar Fasciitis

Heel pain is a common condition that we enjoy being able to help you with, getting you back to the activities you enjoy!

There are many common causes of heel pain, all of them can be frustrating because they generally get worse over time.

Heel pain is an umbrella term used to loosely describe pain in the heel area, usually associated with standing, walking and getting out of bed in the morning.  Pain is generally present in the heel or arch area. Often pain is worsened when you are on your feet for long hours at work or at home.

Here are some of the common heel pain conditions our Podiatrists treat:

  • Plantar fascia tear

  • Plantar fasciitis (acute – just started recently)

  • Plantar fasciosis (chronic – been there for a while!)

  • Achilles tendinosis

  • Achilles tendinopathy

  • Achilles tendonitis

  • Distal tarsal tunnel syndrome

  • Baxters nerve entrapment

As heel pain Podiatrists we will video you walking and use clinical assessment to diagnose the specific cause of your heel pain. We may also refer you for x-ray, ultrasound or MRI of your heel if required.

We will then create a management plan specific to you to:

  • Help settle the heel pain

  • Address the causative factors

  • Get you back to the activities you enjoy!
