The staff and medical professionals at Azilda Family Foot Care are dedicated to assisting our patients in achieving improved foot health and comfort. One of the services we offer is heel pain treatment.
Common Causes of Heel Pain
Persistent heel pain can be caused by a number of factors. Most are mechanical in nature, but arthritis and autoimmune conditions play a part in some cases. Running-related conditions, such as Achilles tendinitis or injuries from other physical activities, are fairly common sources of pain. The type of shoes an individual wears can also have a negative effect, especially for those who wear high-heeled shoes on a regular basis.
Sports or accident-related foot traumas can result in inflammation, leading to pain that can affect everyday pursuits. On many occasions, a stress fracture or bone bruise may be the culprit. Heel pain can significantly hinder activity and quality of life, so it’s important to make an appointment with a specialist if the pain is continuous.
Multiple Ways to Treat Heel Pain
At Azilda Family Foot Care, we provide a comprehensive list of services for heel pain treatment. As a medical practice, we start with an initial consultation to learn about your foot-related concerns. At this consultation, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss your symptoms in detail and share how they’re affecting your daily life. After assessing the issues, we can begin treatment right away.
A return appointment will be set to continue care. Because heel pain treatment can be addressed many ways, your specific treatment will depend on your unique set of symptoms. We may offer laser therapy, custom-made orthotic devices, orthopaedic shoes, callus removal, wart treatment, or other types of therapy. Our staff will ensure that your treatment is explained in detail, enabling you to be an active participant in your healing.
