Melbourne Podiatry Clinic assists a large number of patients suffering from heel pain, and have a proven track record of success in helping to provide relief. Individuals of any age and any fitness level can experience heel pain, and it is one of the most common conditions presenting in podiatry clinics.
Heel pain may develop quite suddenly, or slowly over time, and may be experienced under and around the heel, as well as at the back of the heel on one or both feet. Symptoms of heel pain are often triggered by factors such as a sudden increase in physical activity, significant weight gain, poor biomechanics, or training surfaces which are unsuitable.
There are a number of causes of heel pain including heel spur syndrome, plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis/tendinosis, bruising of the calcaneus, bursitis, stress fractures, and nerve compression.
Melbourne Podiatry Clinic have developed a very successful ‘Return To Run’ program which provides pain relief and enhances healing. Following a comprehensive assessment of the location and cause of your heel pain and a gait analysis which helps to determine the contribution of biomechanical factors, we work closely with you over a period of 4 weeks to treat the symptoms.
Therapies within this time include massage, mobilisation, and dry needling.
