Heel pain that is present for more than four weeks and has not responded to changes in support or anti-inflammatory medications are signs it is time to seek help. According to Jason Miller, DPM, FACFAS, a Pennsylvania foot and ankle surgeon and Fellow member of ACFAS, if the heel pain is interfering with normal daily activities, work, or recreational activities, then it's time to see a foot and ankle surgeon. When visiting a foot and ankle surgeon, patients need to be honest about how their pain developed, their level of activity, what type of shoes they wear and what type of treatment they've completed, if any.

Foot and ankle surgeons will look to conservative treatments first – such as stretching exercises, icing, modifying footgear and activity and sometimes physical therapy. They may also recommend using a night splint or a cortisone injection for patients who experience chronic pain in the morning. "A lot of patients will get better with conservative therapy if done correctly," said Dr. Miller. "The good news is that, for patients who don't respond well to conservative approaches, we have more treatment options than ever before."
