Suffering from Heel Pain?
Heel pain is a common problem for people of all ages. Heel pain is often a ‘catch-all term’ for any condition that can occur around the heel, often causing chronic discomfort. Conditions such as Plantar Fasciitis and heel spurs can cause pain and inflammation in your foot. This is turn often affects your ability to complete day-to-day activities. Symptoms include pain at the base of the heel, pain when standing up after an extended period of time, or burning and tightness in the arch of the foot.
A Heel Spur is a calcium deposit that develops over time into a sharp bony growth under the heel. The spur develops in the soft tissue in the heel, which becomes irritated and swells, putting pressure on the nerves and causing pain.
Heel spurs are often a result of improper foot movement during walking or running, poorly fitting shoes and excessive body weight. Visit your Podiatrist regarding X-rays and reducing pain and inflammation.
