Heel pain in adults
…also known as Plantar fasciitis
Have you ever wondered why your heel hurts when you first get up in the morning?
Or the first few steps you take really hurt your heel especially after you’ve been sitting down for a while?
You are probably suffering from a condition called plantar fasciitis, or you may have a heel spur. This very common problem can be effectively treated by our Podiatrists using a range of current modalities to subside the inflammatory process. If your foot function is one of the causes of your heel pain, then it can be addressed. Our Podiatrists may use a computerised gait analysis system to assist in this process. We also have a Swiss Doloclast shockwave machine which enables this therapy to be used in conjunction with other measures specifically targeted at resuming function.
