HEEL PAIN / PLANTAR FASCIITIS / HEEL SPURS

Heel pain is a condition that is usually caused from Plantar fasciitis and/or Heel spurs. Excessive, constant abnormal pulling and stretching of the fibrous bands that support the arch, causes the heel bone to become inflamed and painful. This constant irritation can sometimes lead to a heel spur (bony growth) forming on the bottom of the heel bone.

The patient usually complains of pain with the first step in the morning, some relief following activity, but the pain returning after extended amounts of time standing or walking.

Unfortunately this condition is very common and like many other foot problems are the result of having an excessively pronated foot (the feet become misaligned and combined with poor posture roll inwards to gain ground contact, the arches become flattened).

Certainly the first line of defence for this condition is good supporting shoes which have a wide toe box and a low heel. Useful treatments for Plantar fasciitis are anti-inflammatory medications such as aspirin and Ibuprofen gel / tablets. Cold ice-pack compresses can be useful in reducing any swelling with stretching exercises and massage both being beneficial.

In conjunction to these treatments, medium to high density orthotics are the most effective means of treating this condition.

Useful treatments for Heel bursitis are anti-inflammatory medications such as aspirin and Ibuprofen gel/tablets. Cold ice-pack compresses can be useful in reducing any swelling.


The orthotics which we recommend for this condition are the DFO FootSupports™ orthotics.
