Heel pain, also known as Plantar Fasciitis, can involve extreme discomfort or pain in or around the heel area. As the heel is the largest bone in the foot the pain can be significant and should be checked immediately.
At Birmingham Podiatry Clinic we can perform a diagnosis after assessing your heel bone and ligaments. Once we have determined the cause of the problem our team can help you relieve your pain.
Plantar fasciitis can occur when walking and running, doing exercise or even when you are stationary. Depending on the cause of your pain we can provide different treatments including taping, orthotics or special injections to relieve the pain.
