Managing Heel Pain in the New York City Area
Heel pain is most commonly the result of strain on the muscles, plantar fasciitis or Achilles tendinitis. Bursitis, arthritis and minor stress fractures may also be responsible for pain in your heel or lower ankle. At Foot & Ankle Restoration, we offer practical and positive solutions for patients in Co-Op City in the Bronx and in the surrounding neighborhoods in New York City. Our podiatric team will work with you to determine the best way to address heel pain for maximum relief and mobility.
Diagnosing Heel Pain Accurately
The podiatrists at Foot & Ankle Restoration will examine your heel carefully and may take X-rays of the affected area to determine the precise cause of your pain. We can diagnose and treat a range of conditions that can affect your ankles, heels and feet. Some of the most common heel issues we see in our Co-Op City office include the following:
- Plantar fasciitis is caused by an inflammation of the tissues that provide support for the foot. Left untreated, it can cause severe heel pain and loss of mobility for patients with this problem.
- Achilles tendinitis is caused by stress to or overuse of the Achilles tendon, which connects the muscles of the calf to the heel and foot. This can occur because of improper footwear choices or changes in the way you exercise, especially if you have recently altered the length or intensity of running activities.
- Fractures of the heel are less common than either plantar fasciitis or Achilles tendinitis. These injuries can be painful and may require an extended period of time to heal effectively.
The podiatric professionals at Foot & Ankle Restoration can provide you with the practical help you need to resolve these issues quickly and effectively. Our team is committed to the highest standards of excellence in the medical profession and to relieving pain and protecting the continuing mobility of our patients in the New York area.
