Whether you are experiencing pain on the bottom of your heel(plantar fasciitis),or behind your heel ( Achilles Tendonitis), it is important to understand the nature of the deformity in order to appropriately treat the symptoms
Heel pain is usually present with the first step in the morning or when rising out of a chair after sitting for a long period. It can also be present after walking long periods of time and at the end of the day. Usually a bio-mechanical alteration of normal gait, heel pain is easily and effectively controlled without surgery.
Orthotic management and control is the most important treatment for long-term success in reducing pain and controlling the mechanics of the altered walking pattern. Additional treatments include ice, stretching, anti-inflammatory medicine, and cortisone steroid injection therapy.
