Heel Spur Treatment Linden Park

Heel Spur Treatment Linden Park

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

Plantar Fasciitis is a condition that targets the band-like structure at the base of the foot, generally causing unease in both the heel and arch. Inflammation is noted in the distressed Plantar Fascia, along with small tears either in its arch region or where it joins the heel bone. Although a spur may exist, it should not be mistaken as the origin of the heel’s discomfort. The term “Heel Spurs” is an antiquated and confusing term that dates back more than 30 years.

Individuals with this condition frequently liken the discomfort to the sensation of having a bruised stone under their heel. This can range from sharp sensations to a consistent, dull ache, most noticeable when one starts walking in the morning or potentially later in the day.

If you’re a resident of Linden Park 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

Experiencing discomfort in the heel can become a pressing matter that interferes with your lifestyle. Early attention is often beneficial once the signs become apparent, or ideally, preventive measures can be undertaken.
