Commonly, heel pain occurs at the bottom of the foot. Patients initially report the most acute discomfort when initially placing weight on the foot. Your discomfort can present as sharp or tearing, and throbbing or radiating discomfort can occur as the condition progresses. To diagnose heel pain and heel spurs, we use a thorough patient history and exam, with the possible use of x-rays for accurate diagnosis. Treatment for heel pain occurs in stages and may include aggressive calf muscle stretching, anti-inflammatory medications, suggested arch supports, or heel cushions. Treatment continues with continued exercises, night splints, cortisone injections, and orthopedic taping. Other treatment options include functional foot orthodontics or corrective surgical treatment.
