Heel Pain In New York, NY

Heel pain is one of the top reasons people come into our office for treatment. Our team here at FootDRx see this problem all the time. While it might not seem like a big deal, early intervention and treatment are crucial to preventing that pesky little pain from turning into a long-term problem. Here’s what you should know about dealing with heel pain,

Causes of Heel Pain

Heel pain is most often caused by a condition known as plantar fasciitis, in which the band of tissue known as the plantar fascia becomes inflamed. The plantar fascia runs the length of the feet from the heel along the soles of the feet to the toes, providing support for the arches. If you experience stabbing pain under the heel first thing in the morning and pain that radiates to the arches of the feet, then you are most likely dealing with plantar fasciitis.

Risk Factors for Heel Pain

If you spend a lot of time on your feet, you may be at an increased risk of developing heel pain. Runners, athletes and those who are overweight are also prone to heel pain. The good news is that it is easily treatable with conservative home care such as rest, ice, anti-inflammatory medication and stretching.

When to See a Podiatrist

The key to treating your heel pain is to start treating the problem right away when pain first sets in. It’s also important to recognize when heel pain may require professional care.
