Common Podiatry Questions
How do I fix heel pain?
Sometimes heel pain can be remedied by footwear changes, including increasing the wearing of footwear, which is important. Also important is to address foot posture problems. We use the latest technology like shockwave therapy, to address your pain and discomfort.
We can treat soft tissue that is damaged and help you be game ready.
Can my heel pain be fixed?
Yes, Your heel pain can be fixed!
Heel pain can be difficult to fix; however, with a combination of therapies, your heel pain can be resolved.
