Heel Spur Treatment Klemzig

Heel Spur Treatment Klemzig

At Heel Pain Clinics of Adelaide, we have people come in daily from Klemzig believing a Heel Spur is causing pain that limits what they want to do. However, a Heel Spur does not cause the pain.

The condition in question, Plantar Fasciitis, impacts the fibrous band in the bottom of the foot, typically manifesting as discomfort in the heel and arch areas. The affected Plantar Fascia exhibits signs of inflammation and may show minute tears either in the midsection (arch) or at the point where it connects to the heel bone. While a spur may also be present, it is not the root of the heel discomfort. The term “Heel Spurs” is an outdated and misleading term that was used over three decades ago.

People who experience Plantar Fasciitis often report sensations similar to that of a bruise under the heel, which can vary from sharp pangs to a persistent ache. The discomfort is commonly felt during the initial steps in the morning or possibly in the later hours of the afternoon or evening.

If you’re a resident of Klemzig dealing with any stage of Plantar Fasciitis, Heel Pain Clinics of Adelaide is available for consultation. Acting early can simplify management and potentially reduce the need for surgery. Our 5 Step Heel Pain Relief Regime suggests prescribed exercises and the use of ice for alleviating mild conditions. However, ignoring initial symptoms like tightness and a lingering ache could lead to more complicated issues. For those experiencing moderate to severe levels of discomfort, we recommend coming in for an assessment. Should there be a partial or complete rupture in more severe cases, surgery might become an option.

Mild Plantar Fasciitis:

  • Bruise-like feeling under the heel
  • Dull aching in the heel
  • Ache in afternoons/evening following being on their feet for long periods
  • Tightness in the arch
  • Intermittent pain and may not be every morning or afternoon

Moderate Plantar Fasciitis:

  • Rather than feeling tightness it is genuine pain
  • Pain every morning
  • It takes 1-5 minutes for morning pain to subside
  • Pain after sitting down and getting up

Severe Plantar Fasciitis:

  • Excruciating pain for most of the day
  • Shooting, throbbing and stabbing sensations at rest
  • A possible tear or rupture of the plantar fascia which may require surgery
Contributing factors for Plantar Fasciitis are:

  • Poor/soft footwear
  • Tight calf muscles
  • Poor Foot Function, particularly flat feet
  • Sudden increase in body weight
  • Recent increase in sporting activity or poor training methods/technique

At Heel Pain Clinics of Adelaide we have our Heal Your Heel System which treats the underlying factors which lead to stress of the plantar fascia.
