There are many conditions causing heel pain, One of the most common is Plantar fasciitis, an inflammation of the plantar fascia. The plantar fascia is a strong band of tissue (like a ligament) that stretches from your heel to your middle foot bones. It helps supports the arch of your foot. Plantar fasciitis will affect about 1 in 10 of the population. The most common symptom is pain on rising after rest, especially after getting out of bed in the morning. We offer an effective treatment plan of laser therapy, strapping to support the fascia and if the cause is biomechanical in origin, orthoses.
Both acute sprains and chronic injury can be improved with appropriate podiatric intervention. Acute sprains can be treated with laser and strapping to reduce pain and swelling. Repeated ankle sprain is often associated with foot instability. We can diagnose the inherent problem and offer solutions to improve the stability and function of your feet and ankles.
