HEEL PAIN IS ONE OF THE MOST COMMON CONDITIONS THAT WE TREAT IN MY FOOT CLINIC.  IT IS MOST OFTEN ASSOCIATED WITH A CONDITION CALLED PLANTAR FASCIITIS WHICH IS USUALLY DUE TO IMPROPER FOOT MECHANICS AND/OR OVERUSE.  IT IS COMMON IN PEOPLE WHO ARE ON THEIR FEET ALL DAY, RUNNERS AND PEOPLE INVOLVED IN JUMPING SPORTS SUCH AS VOLLEYBALL AND BASKETBALL.

WITH OUR PATIENTS WHO HAVE HEEL PAIN OR PLANTAR FASCIITIS WE EDUCATE THEM IN RICE (REST, ICE, COMPRESSION).  WE HAVE THE COMPLETE GAMMIT OF PHYSIOTHERAPY DEVICES SUCH AS ULTRASOUND, INTERFERENTIAL CURRENT, LASER AND SHOCKWAVE.  ALSO ALL OF OUR FOOT SPECIALISTS ARE TRAINED IN ACTIVE RELEASE TECHNIQUE (ART) WHICH IS A VERY EFFECTIVE PROCEDURE FOR TREATING SOFT TISSUE INJURIES.  THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THE TREATMENT IS TO ADDRESS THE UNDERLYING CAUSE, WHICH IN MOST CASES IS IMPROPER MECHANICS OF THE FOOT DUE TO OVERPRONATION.  IN ORDER TO CORRECT THIS WE PRESCRIBE CUSTOM MADE ORTHOTICS.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE ARE SUFFERING FROM ANY TYPE OF FOOT CONDITION AND WOULD LIKE HONEST, COMPETENT ADVICE OR FOOT CARE, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT US AT 416-465-8737.
