Let’s start with how different health professionals can have their place; Exercise physiologists and Physiotherapists are a prime option for exercise prescription and treating load related issues. Physiotherapists can diagnose and treat your heel pain with many adjunct therapists such as soft tissue work, dry needling, shockwave and exercise prescription. Exercise physiologists specialise in the art of exercise as a form of rehabilitation through functional movements.
