Helpful Advice For Your Heel Pain
Heel pain is not usually caused by a single injury, such as a twist or fall, but from repetitive stress and pounding of the heel. Often the soft tissue becomes inflamed because of ill-fitting shoes, a running injury, gait, specific diseases, or obesity.
Pain behind the heel is common, with 1 in 5 people in the community suffering from it. You might notice swelling, warmth, tenderness when you put weight on the foot, or it might hurt to rise to stand on your toes. If these persist contact an experienced podiatrist.
When you run, your feet absorb as much as 4 times your body weight. And over time this continuous impact causes plantar fasciitis, which accounts for about 10% of all running injuries.
Heel pain can range from mild to disabling. However, 95% of treated customers can walk better or can stand longer without pain within the first 6 months when they follow a comprehensive treatment plan with stretches, ice, rest, orthotics and more. See your podiatrist today!
