Heel Pain

It is normal to experience some aches and pains in your feet, especially if you wear constrictive footwear or engage in a lot of intense activity. Heel pain is a common complaint at our practice, and can range from irritating to debilitating. If your heel pain is bothering you consistently or getting worse, you should see your podiatrist Dr. Daniel Waldman.

Plantar fasciitis is the common heel pain caused by inflammation of the plantar fascia, the thick band of muscle that runs along the sole of the foot. Plantar fasciitis pain tends to be much worse in the morning when you first get up and start moving around, and subsides once your plantar fascia stretches out. Because of this, too many people live with the pain and just stumble through the morning without ever getting treatment, but you don't have to suffer. Your podiatrist can treat the pain and prescribe stretches to help prevent future pain and injury.

When To Be Concerned

You should always contact your podiatrist if you think you have a foot injury or your heel pain is interrupting your daily activities. Some aches and pains in your feet are normal but contact your podiatrist if you are having consistent or worsening pain in your heel. We can treat symptoms like pain while also helping to improve your foot health and keep you active later in life.
