If you suffer from heel pain, you are not alone. Approximately one in four Americans experience heel pain that is serious enough to prevent them from walking and enjoying their favorite activities.
Heel pain can develop for many reasons, and understanding the root cause of your pain is essential to finding lasting relief. Here are some of the most common causes of heel pain and what you can do to find relief.
Other forms of treatment might include prescription orthotics to provide the necessary support, stability, and cushioning to relieve pain in your heels and feet. We also carry a line of high-quality medical-grade supports that provide significant heel pain relief for patients with mild-to-moderate symptoms. These devices give the foot structural support and can be adjusted to further balance the foot, alleviating the strain on the plantar fascia and Achilles tendon. Do not make the mistake of simply buying “orthotics” at the pharmacy. These inserts are designed for cushioning instead of support, and at best will only provide temporary relief.
For more severe cases of heel pain, prescription orthotics may be recommended. These custom devices are made specifically for your feet to provide the best support and protection possible.
Surgery for heel pain only comes into play for rare and extreme cases. Most heel pain can and should at first be treated without surgery. However, if conservative treatments fail, surgery might be the best option.
