Heel Pain Treatment & Management

By far the most common cause of heel pain in patients we see is plantar fasciitis, but the cause of heel pain is frequently misdiagnosedas plantar fasciitis or plantar fasciiosiswhen it is not.We have seen patients who have had long courses of shockwave therapy or orthotic therapy that have made no differences due to an incorrect diagnosis.

There are many allied health professional websites that are overly simplistic about diagnosing the cause of heel pain, that you may have read before reading this.

It is essential to get the condition diagnosed properly so that the correct treatment can be applied. If your current heel pain treatment isn’t working, please contact us so that we can get you diagnosed correctly and then commence the correct treatment for the cause of your heel pain.
