FLORIDA PODIATRIST DISCUSSES HEEL PAIN

 

PODIATRIST, DR. ERIC WEINSTEIN STATES, "HEEL PAIN IS PROBABLY THE MOST COMMON PROBLEMS PODIATRISTS SEE.  PEOPLE WITH TIGHT CALVE MUSCLES AND FLAT FEET ARE AT GREATER RISK FOR SUDDEN HEEL PAIN.  THER'S A LIGAMENT THAT MAKES YOUR ARCH CALLED THE PLANTAR FASCIA, AND WHEN THAT PULLS, IT'S THE WEAKEST LINK THAT CAUSES INFLAMMATION.  STRETCHING THE CALF MUSCLE, ICING THE AREA, AND TAKING ANTI-INFLAMMATORY MEDICATIONS CAN HELP.  IN SOME CASES CORTISONE SHOTS ARE NECESSARY.  SOMETIMES ONE INJECTION IS ENOUGH AND VERY RARELY, IF EVER , DO I NEED TO DO SURGERY ON IT.  IF IT HURTS TO STEP OUT OF BED IN THE MORNING OR AFTER RESTING, IT'S TIME TO SEE A PODIATRIST.  EARLY INTERVENTION CAN HELP KEEP HEEL PAIN FROM BECOMING A CHRONIC PROBLEM."
