Understanding Plantar Fasciitis & Heel Spurs 

Treating & Diagnosing Heel Pain Symptoms

Heel pain is a common complaint that can significantly impact your daily activities. At Advanced Foot and Ankle of Wisconsin, we specialize in diagnosing and treating various conditions that cause heel pain. Some of the conditions we commonly encounter include:

  • Plantar Fasciitis: Plantar fasciitis occurs when the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that supports the arch of the foot, becomes inflamed. Plantar fasciitis symptoms include burning, sharp, or aching pain in the heel and/or arch of the foot.
  • Heel Spurs: Heel spurs are bony growths that develop on the underside of the heel bone. They can be associated with plantar fasciitis or occur independently. You may have heel spurs if you experience sharp, stabbing heel pain when walking or standing.

When it comes to managing heel pain, we believe in a personalized approach tailored to your specific needs. Our treatment options include: 

  • Physical therapy to strengthen and stretch the affected areas, 
  • 3-D printed orthotics for customized support, 
  • Pain relief modalities to alleviate discomfort, 
  • Targeted exercises to improve flexibility and mobility
  • Corticosteroid injections for temporary relief
  • Surgical intervention for severe cases where conservative treatments have been unsuccessful.

If you're suffering from heel pain, our dedicated team of specialists is here to help you find relief and regain your mobility. Schedule an appointment with us today to start your journey towards a pain-free life.
