We can help you with your heel pain. Whether it's providing hands-on techniques to improve mobility and reduce pain or empowering you with exercise programs to build strength, our team can be your solution to getting back to pain-free movement.
Here are just a few of the common injuries we diagnose and treat in our clinics.
- Plantar Fasciitis: Plantar fasciitis is a common cause of heel pain and arch pain. Although it's name implies it's an inflammatory condition, the reality is that this condition results from a chronic overuse & breakdown of the plantar fascia. Hands on treatment with interventions such as IASTM or ASTYM in conjunction with exercising, shoewear changes and taping can be very effective in reducing pain.
- Achilles Tendinopathy: The achilles tendon can suffer breakdown at the insertion (attachment) to the heel as well as in the mid portion of the tendon. Exercise and hands on treatment in PT is the first line treatment for this condition.
- Peroneal (Fibular) Tendinopathy: Peroneal tendinopathy is a common cause of pain through the outer calf or ankle. It can be caused by chronic overuse leading to tendon break down or ankle instability resulting in impingement of the tendon when walking. Hands on treatment with interventions such as IASTM or ASTYM in conjunction with exercising, pronation control & ankle stability exercises and taping can be very effective in reducing pain.
