You do not have to suffer with heel pain! Heel pain is one of the most common foot and ankle injuries and you may start to experience symptoms either gradually or slowly. It is important to know that heel pain is not normal and can be treated successfully in most cases. We have created this website to provide you the information you need to take control and eliminate your heel pain.
Heel pain is usually cause by activity. It is a commonly seen running injury or sports injury. Sometimes people will also feel heel pain after walking more than usual. It is commonly felt beneath the heel and is known as plantar fasciitis. It can also occur as achilles tendonitis on the back of the heel.
Heel pain is usually secondary to a combination of activity, foot structure, and shoes worn. It is commonly seen in athletes, teachers, factory workers or anyone else who is on their feet a lot. For that reason, both the inflammation and the mechanics must be addressed for the quickest resolution of pain and best long term results.
The Heel Pain Center of Central Virginia has been formed within Blue Ridge Foot and Ankle Clinic to offer the most advanced treatments available to effectively treat your heel pain. This site will provide you with information, but be sure to call for an immediate appointment if you are currently experiencing heel pain.
