Here at the office of Family Footcare, P.C., one of the most common reasons that patients visit us is for Southfield heel pain treatment. Heel pain occurs in many people of all ages and situations. Heel pain often is a result of a condition called plantar fascilitis, or heel spurs. This condition is characterized by inflammation of the band of tissue that extends from the heel to the toe. Plantar fascilitis often occurs in people who have issues with the arches of their feet, such as if they have flat feet, or feet with too pronounced of an arch. Wearing footwear that does not properly support your feet can also lead to symptoms of plantar fascilitis. Some basic symptoms to be on the lookout for include: pain in the bottom of the foot, pain around the arch of the foot, pain that increases once you begin walking or when you first stand up, and pain that increases over time rather than getting better. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you should schedule an appointment with us so that we can determine if you are in need of our Southfield heel pain treatment. We will tailor a treatment strategy to your individual needs so that we can provide the most effective treatment for you. Some examples of treatment techniques that might encompass your Southfield heel pain treatment include: stretching exercises, lifestyle changes, medications, shoe modifications such as the use of orthotics, padding and strapping, injection therapy, and more.
