<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>A frequently occurring problem in feet is pain in one’s heels. Two causes of this pain are Plantar Fasciitis – this is pain under the heel – or, Achilles Tendinitis – which is pain there the Achilles tendon is joined to the bone of the heel.</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Treatment for heel pain usually involves using a combination of techniques, such as stretches and painkillers, all of which encourages a speedy recovery and pain relief.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__> Most frequently, heel pain is not severe and will often heal on its own. Sometimes, though, the pain worsens or recurs.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>“<span class__equalto____cout__tj-companyname__cout__>__squarer__companyname__squarel__</span>“</strong></em> helps in relieving the pain.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__> The pain it usually not brought on by any injury and frequently begins mildly and slowly. The types of shoes that are worn are often the culprit. Flat shoes such as flit-flops may cause the plantar fascia to stretch and swell.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Post-static dyskinesia (pain after rest) the pain has a tendency to be more intense when one rises in the morning or if a rest is taken at some point in the day.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Usually, the pain lessens after some activity – like walking – and get worse as the day goes on.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>Your doctor will perform an examination of your feet and ask questions to learn of your daily habits such as, how much time you spend walking or standing and what shoes you wear as well as any other pertinent medical history.</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Your podiatrist can easily discern whether plantar fasciitis is your issue by a simple examination of your feet. If the cause of the pain is not clear, it may be necessary to perform additional tests. These tests may be ultrasound scan of the fascia or X-ray of the heel. Ultrasound can quickly disclose any areas of the fascia that are thick or swollen.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>Treatment for plantar fasciitis:</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong> Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs</strong></em></p>
<ul style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>
<li>Corticosteroids</li>
<li>Physical therapy</li>
<li>Night splints</li>
<li>Orthotics</li>
<li>Extracorporeal shock wave therapy</li>
</ul>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>Although most patients with plantar fasciitis respond to non-surgical treatment, a small percentage of patients may require surgery. If, after several months of non-surgical treatment, you continue to have heel pain, surgery will be considered. Your foot and ankle surgeon will discuss the surgical options with you and determine which approach would be most beneficial for you.</strong></em></p>

<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Heel pain is a very common foot problem. The sufferer usually feels pain either under the heel (planter fasciitis) or just behind it (Achilles tendinitis), where the Achilles tendon connects to the heel bone.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Treatment for heel pain usually involves using a combination of techniques, such as stretches and painkillers, to encourage a speedy recovery and relief from pain.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>Heel pain is typically mild and usually disappears on its own; however, in some cases the pain may persist and become chronic.</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Our podiatrist can help in relieving the pain.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Heel pain typically comes on gradually, not caused by any injury to the affected area. It is frequently triggered by wearing a flat shoe, such as flip-flop sandals. Flat footwear may stretch the plantar fascia to such an extent that the area becomes swollen.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>If you have <em>post-static dyskinesia</em> (pain after rest), the symptoms tend to be worse just after getting out of bed in the morning, and after a period of rest during the day.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>After a bit of activity, like walking, symptoms often improve a bit. But they are likely to worsen as the day goes on.</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>The most common causes of heel pain are:</strong></em></p>

<ul style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>
<li>Plantar Fasciitis</li>
<li>Heel Bursitis</li>
<li>Heel Bumps / Haglund’s Deformity</li>
<li>Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome</li>
<li>Chronic inflammation of the heel pad</li>
<li>Stress Fracture</li>
<li>Sever’s Disease (Calcaneal Apophysitis)</li>
<li>Achilles Tendinosis</li>
</ul>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Our podiatrist will physically examine your feet and ask questions about your daily habits, such as how much walking and standing you do, what type of footwear is worn, and other pertinent details about your medical history.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>Our doctor can usually diagnose plantar fasciitis just by talking to you and examining your feet. It may be necessary to perform additional tests if the diagnosis is uncertain, or to rule out other possible causes of heel pain. These can include X-rays of the heel or an ultrasound scan of the fascia. An ultrasound can quickly disclose any areas of the fascia that are thick or swollen, as in plantar fasciitis.</strong></em></p>
