Suffering with heel pain?

Story posted on

THEREare a number of causes for heel pain (over 40!) but the go-to diagnosis is plantar fasciitis, which in reality, is a very broad term used to cover all heel pain, explains The  Foot Clinic Frome.

“Plantar fasciitis means inflammation of the plantar fascia.  This can be brought on by a number of factors including a change of jobs which may involve standing for long periods of time, weight gain or pregnancy or very flat footwear.  But at this time of year, the biggest cause is a sudden increase in physical activity.  With lots of people embarking on a new fitness routine following their New Year’s Resolution, we see many people complaining of heel pain.  And this is due to sudden stresses on tissues that simply are not used to it.  The plantar fascia suddenly gets pushed beyond its limits and gets damaged, resulting in areas of inflammation and pain.

“How do you know you have plantar fasciitis?

“The tell-tale sign is rest-to-rise pain. So, if your first steps in the morning make you hobble like a one-legged penguin then it starts to ease off, its likely you are suffering with plantar fasciitis and you need to start treating it as soon as possible. The longer you leave it, the harder it is to resolve. 

“Self-diagnosis can cause more trouble than it solves, as there are some heel pain problems that become irritated with plantar fasciitis treatment plans. So, you need to be sure of your diagnosis. If you’re not sure, or you have tried the Dr Google rehab programme and you are still suffering, then its strongly advisable to let an expert have a look and help you get on track to recovery.  Podiatrists know feet and Pods Heal Heels, so without doubt, they are the best people to turn to when you have foot pain.”
