Another common form of foot pain in adults is pain in the heels. It can occur as a result of activity, such as strenuous exercise, repeated jumping motions, or prolonged standing. It can also be a symptom of a number of foot conditions, including
Periostitis – an inflammation of the tissue surrounding the heel bone
Bone spurs – growth of new bone as a result of repeated strain, pressure or rubbing
Gait abnormalities which cause inflammation of the structures attached to the heel bone
Misalignment caused by structural issue
How Physiomed Can Help
Most heel pain can be successfully treated using a combination of custom orthotics to correct structural abnormalities and improve your gait, taking the pressure off affected areas and soft tissue therapy.
