Heel pain is one of the most common forms of foot pain in adults. It often occurs as a result of daily activities and exercise.
The heel absorbs the impact when your feet hit the ground when walking and running, and it springs you forward, ready for the next step. While walking, the stresses placed on your feet can be one-and-a-quarter times your body weight. So it is not surprising that heel pain is common.
Treatment of heel pain depends entirely on the cause of the problem. Therefore, it is of utmost importance that you understand the cause of your symptoms before embarking on a treatment program.
Our Podiatrists can manufacture custom orthotics to correct any biomechanical abnormalities that may be causing your heel pain.
