Heel Spur Treatment Tusmore

Heel Spur Treatment Tusmore

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

Affecting the fibrous tissue on the sole of the foot, Plantar Fasciitis typically manifests as unease or discomfort in the heel and/or arch. The Plantar Fascia in question often shows inflammation and minor tears, either in the arch or where it anchors into the heel bone. Though a spur might be visible, it’s not the underlying cause of the discomfort in the heel. The nomenclature “Heel Spurs” is both outdated and misleading, having been used inaccurately for more than three decades.

For those dealing with Plantar Fasciitis, the sensation is commonly described as akin to having a bruise beneath the heel. This sensation can vary from sharp to aching and is often most apparent during the first steps of the day or potentially later in the afternoon or evening.

For residents of Tusmore, Heel Pain Clinics of Adelaide is experienced in managing a variety of Plantar Fascia conditions, from mild discomfort to severe ruptures. The sooner the condition is addressed, the more straightforward it is to manage and the likelihood of requiring surgical intervention may be reduced. Our 5 Step Heel Pain Relief Regime often recommends exercises and icing for milder cases. It’s not uncommon for people to ignore initial symptoms, holding out hope that the unease in the heel will simply fade. For those with moderate to severe Plantar Fasciitis, a clinic assessment is recommended. Severe cases involving ruptures may necessitate surgical procedures.

  • Bruise-like feeling under the heel
  • Dull aching in the heel
  • Ache in afternoons/evening following being on their feet for long periods

Moderate Plantar Fasciitis:

  • Rather than feeling tightness it is genuine pain
