Heel Pain

Looking for Heel Pain relief? We can help!

Heel pain is a generic term used for a variety of musculoskeletal conditions affecting the heel, such as plantar fasciitis, heel spurs and Achilles tendonitis and is one of the most common injuries to the foot that podiatrists diagnose and treat.

One of the key challenges sufferers face with heel pain and in particular plantar fasciitis is that the injury does not improve with time and complete rest. The reason being it’s almost impossible to stay off your feet and not walk.

The earlier you seek advice and treatment for heel pain, the better the outcomes. If you have had heel pain for more than 2 months, we strongly advise you to book an appointment with our clinic. The longer you have had pain, the longer the rehabilitation process can be.

Diagnosing Heel Pain

There are several causes for heel pain, with plantar fasciitis being the most common form of heel pain. These include;

Heel Pad Syndrome

Achilles Tendonitis

Nerve Compression / Entrapment

Distal Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome

Stress Fracture of the Calcaneus (heel bone)



Causes of heel pain can be attributed to (but not limited to):

Unsupportive Footwear
Poor Biomechanics
Sudden Change of Activity
Weight Gain

It is critical to note that it is only with a physical examination and a thorough understanding of a patient’s history by a podiatrist can a proper diagnosis be made, and the correct treatment implemented. Your Podiatrist will then work with you to develop a treatment plan to aid in reducing pain and inflammation, as well as setting long term treatment goals to ensure the pain doesn’t return.
