Heel Pain

foot_problems_heel_pain_imgHeel pain is usually caused by acute or chronic inflammation of the plantar fascia, a ligament-like structure located on the bottom of the foot. Inflammation of the plantar fascia can be caused by a heel spur or by arthritis, obesity, and other local and systemic diseases.

Heel pain can frequently be treated by such conservative methods as orthotic foot supports, cortisone injections, oral anti-inflammatory medications and physical therapy.

When conservative treatment fails, surgical intervention may be necessary. In most cases, the surgical treatment can be performed using minimal invasive surgery in our office.
