Walking with heel pain can be a serious challenge. So can even standing if it's bad enough. At Tower Podiatry, we understand just how frustrating that is and how much it interferes with your life. Treating heel pain is one of our specialties. There's no cause for you to suffer any longer than you have to.
The two most common reasons for seeking our heel pain relief Central Park South are to address plantar fasciitis and/or heel spurs. When inflammation and even small tears develop in the band of tissue that connects your heel to your toes, that is what is known as plantar fasciitis. Heel spurs occur when calcium deposits form on the underside of your foot. In both instances, risk factors include flat feet, high arches, ill-fitting footwear having feet that roll inward when you walk, and being overweight. Spending a lot of time on your feet is also associated with heel pain, particularly if any of the other conditions are also present. When you come in for our heel pain relief Central Park South, you can expect an examination and x-rays taken to reach a conclusive diagnosis about what the reasons are for your pain. The good news is that safe, effective, non-invasive treatment is available. In the majority of cases, fitting you for custom-made orthotics will be sufficient to promote healing. These shoe inserts are fashioned from molds taken of your feet. They are designed especially for you, and redistribute how your weight sits on your foot, as well as giving you additional cushion. This will give your heel pain a chance to subside. Other treatments may be considered in more severe circumstances, or if you experience recurring bouts.
Our heel pain relief Central Park South is exactly what you need so that you can walk comfortably once more. Reach out to our office to book an appointment.
