Heel Pain Treatment

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

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • 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.
