Home Care Tips To Resolve Heel Pain

We treat many different lower limb conditions and injuries, but one of the leading causes for visits to our offices is heel pain. In part, this can be explained by the fact there are several possible causes for pain in your heels.

More than that, though, your heel endures tremendous force loads while being the anchor for two key connective tissues – the plantar fascia and Achilles tendon. Accordingly, plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendinitis are two of the most common conditions adult patients experience. The good news is, home care for heel pain caused by these injuries might just provide the relief you need.

You are certainly welcome to come in and see us right away if you are experiencing heel pain. We will diagnose your condition and create a treatment plan to address it. However, you may want to try a couple of things at home first. Some of the best tips for relieving heel pain at home include:

Of course, if your home care for heel pain isn’t providing the relief you seek, it’s quite possible you will need professional treatment. Fortunately, you can always find effective foot and ankle care here at Rocky Mountain Foot & Ankle Center.

For your convenience, we have offices in Wheat Ridge, Golden, Evergreen, and Granby, Co. Give us a call at (303) 423-2520 and our friendly staff will answer any of your questions and provide additional information on the podiatric services we offer.
