There are many reasons you might have heel pain, and it’s important that you find out what’s causing it so you can treat it properly.
One of the most common is plantar fasciitis – which is a painful condition caused by repetitive strain of the plantar fascia (the band of soft tissue connecting your heel bone and toes).
It helps to reinforce the arch of the foot and acts like a ‘bow string’ to stiffen your foot when you walk.
Plantar fasciitis usually responds well to treatments such as exercises, strapping and orthotics (shoe inserts). But sometimes the pain still continues; for stubborn cases at Advance Podiatry we can offer steroid injections or Shockwave Therapy.
