Heel Pain - Treating the Symptoms

Home > Heel Pain > Heel Pain – Treating the Symptoms

A 2-step approach must be taken to manage your heel pain.  This will include treating both your symptoms and the cause of your heel pain.

The main symptom that people complain of is a sharp, stabbing pain in the heel, especially in the morning when they first get out of bed. The first 10-15 steps are usually excruciating! This pain is your body’s way of telling you that you have an injury – this injury leads to inflammation and swelling. Icing, gel compression sleeve, NSAID’s, cortisone injection, and laser help to reduce inflammation and allow you to feel better.
