There are many different heel pain causes and it can be difficult to diagnose your problem on your own.
You’ve probably heard of the phrase “sticking out like a sore thumb” to indicate someone or something that is different. When your thumb doesn’t hurt, you don’t think much about it, but when it does, it is pretty much all you can think about and you get a keen sense of just how important it is. The same goes for when you have foot pain, particularly heel pain. Suddenly, walking becomes labourious and each step makes you suck in your breath and may bring tears to your eyes.
At Abbott Foot & Ankle Clinic, we understand how challenging it can be to continue your normal day in the Owen Sound, Ontario area if you have heel pain. It can be weighing on your mind wondering what is causing it and what you should do. Since there are so many different heel pain causes and it can be difficult your problem to diagnose on your own, we recommend scheduling an appointment. We’ll assess the situation and let you know the best course of action to get you back on your feet (pun intended!).
Some of the heel pain causes we look for include plantar warts, plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, calcaneal apophysitis, bursitis, and posterior calcaneal exostosis. We also look at what has caused your condition so we can help you prevent a recurrence. With such options as MLS laser therapy, insoles, and orthotics, we can help you put foot pain behind you. Foot pain is never normal, so if you are experiencing pain, please reach out to us to begin an effective treatment plan.
At Abbott Foot & Ankle Clinic, we can help determine heel pain causes for residents of Collingwood, Wasaga Beach, Owen Sound, Stayner, Meaford, Thornbury, Creemore, The Blue Mountains, and surrounding areas in Ontario.
