Heel/Arch pain

Do you often wonder why you get pain in your heel or your arch when you get up first thing in the morning or even after you have been sitting for a while?

Pain in your heel and arch can be the most common foot complaint and is often an indication that there may be a compromise to the long band of fibrous tissue found under the foot called the plantar fascia. It often presents as sharp pain on the inside of the heel or even it the mid area, but can also be found in the mid region of the arch.

Treatment options are usually guided towards rectifying the cause of this problem, which inevitably could be mechanical. A proper physical examination is required first and management may include stretching, orthotic devices, a change of footwear, massage and strapping

Achilles Pain

Are you experiencing pain in the back of your heel along the tendon when you walk or run?

Pain in the Achilles tendon is often an overuse injury of the band of tissue that connects the calf muscles at the back of the lower leg to your heel bone. Although it is commonly seen in athletes, it can affect people of all demographics.

Pain is most often seen in the mid portion and/or at the insertion area into the back of the heel. Treatment options will depend on the diagnosis. A proper biomechanical examination is often required to rule out any underlying mechanical issues, and initial treatments may include simple at-home stretch and strengthening programmes. Further to this, orthotics and footwear modifications may be required for added stability. Self-care strategies are usually necessary to prevent recurring episodes.
