Heel Pain (Plantar Fasciitis)
Heel pain is one of the most common foot complaints we see in our clinic. It is likely that we all experience it at some point in our lives, yet most of us do very little in the form of prevention.
Plantar fasciitis is a condition associated with some heel and foot pain.The plantar fascia is a thick fibrous band that runs from the heel to the base of the toes.
Inflammation of the insertion of the plantar fascia can occur if the band is overstretched or strained due to injury, poor biomechanics or ill-fitting footwear.Many sufferers of plantar fasciitis report their pain to be worse in the morning.
What Causes Heel Pain?
While Plantar fasciitis is a common cause of heel pain, there are other factors that can lead to heel pain. These include:

- Injury or trauma
- Stress fractures

The good news is, that with our experience and expert knowledge we will correctly diagnose your heel pain and get you back to your daily routine, pain-free.
