Heel pain

Heel pain, plantar Fasciitis or heel spur syndrome is caused by an abnormal or excessive pull of the plantar fascia at its insertion. Patients can present with morning pain, pain after periods of rest or chronic pain which progresses to pain all the time.

After assessment of patients’ condition, the treatment is aimed to improve position and function of the foot. This is achieved through strapping, padding, exercises and orthotics. In extreme chronic cases surgical intervention may be necessary.
