Heel and Arch Pain Treatments


Heel Pain and Arch Pain may be caused by Plantar Fasciitis, Heel Spurs, Achilles Tendonitis or other soft tissue inflammatory conditions.

 

Often associated with pain upon rising in the morning these conditions are treatable with specific, prescribed physical therapies, education regarding activities or other factors exacerbating the condition, footwear technical advice, and prescription orthotics for certain cases can also help. Non-invasive physical therapies include ExtraCorporeal Shock Wave Therapy and Ultra Sound.

 


If you have heel or arch pain, you may find it extremely painful when you take your first steps in the morning. If this is the case, you may be suffering from the condition called Plantar Fasciar, which is due to an overstretching of the plantascia of the foot.  Conservative treatment is typically rest, ice and elevation of the foot.  For chronic problems, comprehensive treatment is needed including ultrasound therapy, taping and extracorporeal shockwave therapy.


The Wilson Foot Clinic specializes in shockwave therapy treatment. Once the pain and inflammation is under control, the long term management can include a custom orthotic device.  If you have heel or arch pain, come in for a visit before it becomes chronic.
