Heel Pain

Heel pain can become a chronic disabling problem if not accurately diagnosed at an early stage and the appropriate treatment implemented. It is usually a multifactorial complaint where the pain is a symptom in combination with others, not a stand alone condition.

Heel pain is common and will invariably be due to a combination of factors. Various conditions affecting the heel area include: Heel Spurs, Plantar Fasciitis, Calcaneal Apophysitis (Sever's Disease), Achilles Tendonitis, Myofascial Trigger Point pain, Sciatica, Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome, Entrapment of the Lateral Plantar Nerve, Rupture of the Plantar Fascia, Fracture and Soft Tissue Trauma.

Plantar fasciitis and heel spurs are often blamed for most heel pain. In our experience, true plantar fasciitis is only relevant to a small percentage of cases and most heel spurs exist with no symptoms for many years and may or may not be implicated in the actual pain.
