Treatment Heel pain
The human foot is very complex. With a unique cushioning mechanism, it provides stability, speed and maneuverability with support on the heels. This is the most important part of the foot, which bears a lot of stress. The special structure of the bone and the thick layer of soft tissue allow us to walk comfortable. But if there is pain in the foot, this is an extremely unpleasant sensation. It can be stabbing, aching, sharp, intermittent or constant. The frequency of heel pain occurrence is difficult to determine. Many people, periodically experiencing pain, prefer to endure it or treat themselves without going to a doctor and undergoing heel pain treatment in the clinic.
