Heel Pain – Plantar Fasciitis

Heel pain, Plantar Fasciitis, is one of the most common complaints we see in clinic. There are many different causes for this and one in ten adults will suffer significant heel pain at some point in their adult life. Typically the pain is at its worst following prolonged rest. It is very noticeable for most people first thing in the morning.

Most people will put up with this pain for at least nine months before doing anything about it so if you, or a friend, are struggling with the problem follow these simple instructions to help get yourself better.

Take some time to try and work out why your pain has developed. There is likely to be a change in activity, footwear or lifestyle that has let the problem develop.

Try to either stop doing this activity or modify it to reduce the stress on your heel.
