Heel Spur Adelaide
North Adelaide & Eastwood
A Heel Spur coincides with the pain inflicting condition: Plantar Fasciitis which affects the ligament-type structure in the sole of the foot that usually cause pain in the heel and/or arch. The Plantar Fascia becomes inflamed and irritated and may sometimes cause small tears in the ligament belly (arch) or where it attaches in to the heel bone. Heel Spurs maybe present, but these are not the cause of heel pain. “Heel Spurs” is a misleading diagnosis that has been used for over 30 years. The Heel Spurs don’t cause the pain, but the inflammation of the Plantar Fascia attaching the spur, does.
At Adelaide Podiatry Centres we have our Heal your Heel system which treats the underlying factors which lead to stress and strain of the plantar fascia.
The heal your heel system comprises of three components:
1. 5 step heel pain relief regime
2. Extracorporal shockwave therapy
3. Addressing biomechanics
