Dr. Brandon Nelson Discusses How to Get Rid of Constant Heel Pain

Heel pain can be one of the most challenging conditions to deal with as a patient. Heel pain can really impact everyday activities including just walking and working. Some of the most common causes of heel pain include plantar fasciitis, plantar bursitis, nerve entrapments and tarsal coalitions. The #1 cause by far is plantar fasciitis, which is usually amenable by conservative measures.

Heel pain usually responds to stretching and icing. However, if you have constant heel pain that is debilitating or painful in the morning I recommend seeing a foot and ankle physician. An x-ray is vital to identifying the pathology that is causing the pain. Often times on the x-ray you can see arthritis or a heel spur. A heel spur can take condition a little more challenging for both the physician and the patient. Issaquah Foot and Ankle Specialists is the #1 referral center for heel pain.
