Treatment Heel pain

Request an appointment

    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.

    Treatment Of Heel Pain

    In Orlando Medical Center “Touch of Health”, the examination is carried out according to specific plan of heel pain treatment. The doctor asks in detail about the complaints, specifying their nature, type and localization of pain. Furthermore, he examines the affected area. 

    Operational treatment quickly and permanently removes the cause of heel pain. Modern surgery is based on minimally invasive outpatient techniques with minimal trauma and a short recovery period.

    In case of injuries, as a rule, conservative treatment is carried out with help of bandages, correctors of blood microcirculation, correctors of bone and cartilage metabolism. For autoimmune causes of heel pain, basic therapy drugs, NSAIDs, glucocorticoids are recommended.

    Operational treatment of heel pain is used for fractures of the calcaneus with displacement, as well as in severe cases of diseases of the musculoskeletal system. The indications are:

    • Tendon rupture;
    • Neglected heel spur;
    • Bursitis that could not be treated conservatively.
