Foot Conditions

Foot Pain

If you’re experiencing foot pain, schedule a meeting as soon as possible for a proper diagnosis and suggested treatment plan.

Pain on the inside of your foot’s arch or heel can affect your gait, preventing you from moving or walking around freely.

Plantar Fasciitis

Heel or arch pain on the bottom of the foot is most commonly caused by an inflammation of the connective tissues between the heels and toes (plantar fascia), a condition called Plantar Fasciitis. The pain is most noticeable after getting out of bed in the morning.

Achilles Tendinitis

Achilles Tendinitis is an irritation or inflammation of the tendon that attaches to the back of the heel bone. The condition can be caused by poor biomechanics, injury, over-training or improper warm ups.

Haglund’s Deformity

Haglund’s deformity is a bone enlargement at the back of the heel in the area where the Achilles Tendon inserts in the heel bone. The deformity generally is caused by poor biomechanics, which increases friction of the heel bone against the back of the shoe.

Heel Spurs

Heel spurs are growths of bone that develop on the underside of the heel bone, usually diagnose through radiographs. Heel spurs can occur with or without pain.
