Painful heelHave you ever felt pain along the inside heel of your foot? A throbbing searing or piercing pain that is just on the heel of your foot? It might feel like your heel is walking on a stone or you have a bruising heel pain.

Has your pain gradually worsened but now is especially bad when you take your first steps in the morning and then fades after about 30-45 minutes of activity?

If so you may have Plantar Fasciitis (heel-pain syndrome.) It is caused by degeneration of plantar fascia as a result of persistent overuse injury.

Poorly managed plantar fasciitis can significantly worsen your quality of life by interfering with your ability to do day-to-day activities.

The good news is that with the correct conservative management, the vast majority cases of plantar fasciitis resolve within a few months.

The bad news is that, the longer you experience plantar fasciitis pain or delay seeking treatment, the less likely you will improve from conservative treatment.

Diagnosis of Plantar Fasciitis

How to diagnose Plantar Fasciitis.

First and foremost, the diagnosis of Plantar Fasciitis is a clinical one. Further investigations should be tailored depending on the clinical picture.

Conservative Treatment

For mild cases of plantar fasciitis, conservative management is usually effective in controlling the pain and reversing the damage (without needing any further treatments).

BUT the longer you experience plantar fasciitis pain or delay seeking treatment, the less likely you will improve from conservative treatment.

Non surgical procedures

Non-surgical interventions and procedures are very effective as the second line of treatment after the failure of conservative treatments. For chronic or persistent Plantar Fasciitis, we perform a few different types of ultrasound guided procedures, which are effective in getting you back on track quickly.
