Dr. Rajnish Manohar, a Podiatrist in Brandon, can help you with heel pain. The majority of heel discomfort goes away in a short time, either by itself or after treatment. Without treatment the pain will generally spread out around the heel. Treatments that are used to minimize heel discomfort are only slightly more effective than no treatment at all. Dr. Manohar advises some simple exercises such as stretching workouts. The discomfort in your heel could possibly go away by itself with time. However, until then you might want to seek treatment for the discomfort. Treatment of heel pain begins with resting the foot. Conservative treatment of plantar heel discomfort: long-term follow-up.
There many orthotic shoe supplies for individuals experiencing heel discomfort. These inserts serve as support for the treatment of plantar fasciitis, frequently described as heel spurs or heel pain syndrome. The clear polymer gel self-adjusts to fit your distinct foot shape. This absorbs the painful foot shock that can make heel pain worse and also stimulates the heel. If, after numerous months of non-surgical treatment, you continue to have heel pain, you may want to discuss the situation with Dr. Manohar. Your heel discomfort may be caused by other issues and surgery might be an option.
Before you see a Podiatrist in Brandon
There are some things you can do to prevent painful heel syndrome. First, take a look at how you walk. A simple adjustment to how you apply pressure to the feet in your strides can make a world of difference.
You should be proactive about your heel pain and take care of a painful heel right away. Many times, heel pain can be overcome without surgery. However, swelling of the heel is not common. When associated with painful medial-lateral compression of the calcaneus, may suggest a tension fracture. It is suggested that you get in touch with our Brandon office if you see some swelling.
The heel spur itself is asymptomatic and isn’t the source of the pain. The discomfort arises from the inflammation of the plantar fascia. A real heel spur tends to be painful throughout its early development, when little or no x-ray evidence is present. Dr. Manohar advises that you get an over-the-counter orthotic that supports the arch of the foot.
