Nonsurgical Treatment of Heel Pain Q & A

When should I see a doctor about heel pain?

Heel pain is an extremely common condition. And it’s no surprise considering how much pressure we put on our feet throughout the day. 

Heel pain often develops over time as a result of this ongoing burden, slowly worsening. Because it comes on gradually, all too many people ignore it. But if your heel pain is affecting your ability to go about your day without discomfort, it’s time to talk to the team at Precision Podiatry. Generally, if you’ve been feeling pain in your heel for more than a week, even with ample rest, it’s time to see a doctor about it. 

What causes heel pain?

At any of their offices, a Precision Podiatry provider can help you find relief from your heel pain. They start by diagnosing the cause of your discomfort. Some of the most common causes of heel pain include:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • Tarsal tunnel syndrome
  • Heel spurs
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Stress fractures

Plantar fasciitis is the leading cause of heel pain. If your heel pain feels sharp and stabbing and is most noticeable when you first put weight on your foot — like when you get out of bed in the morning — it’s most likely plantar fasciitis. 

No matter what’s causing your heel pain, the experts at Precision Podiatry offer nonsurgical treatment. 

What are my options for nonsurgical treatment of heel pain?

When you have heel pain, you want to find relief — but often not at the cost of an invasive procedure with a lengthy downtime. That’s why Precision Podiatry offers a wide range of nonsurgical treatment options. 

To help you find relief quickly without surgery, your provider personalizes a treatment program for you. It almost always includes home care, including keeping weight off the area and icing it. In addition, your treatment may include:

  • Physical therapy and specific stretches to do at home
  • Orthotic inserts in your shoes
  • Anti-inflammatory medications
  • Cortisone injections
  • Bracing or taping
  • Night splints 

In short, the Precision Podiatry team has a wealth of treatment options from which they can use to help you find heel pain relief without surgery.
