Heel pain is typically caused by plantar fasciitis, which is an inflammation of the tissue between your heel
and your toes. When a spur is present, it is sometimes also called heel spur syndrome. You may also be
at an increased risk of Plantar Fasciitis if you have an unusual walk, flat feet or high arches, tight Achilles
tendons or heel cords, or often wear high heels or shoes with thin or worn-out soles. Kesler Podiatry
offers quality treatment of heel pain and plantar fasciitis to patients in Hawthorne.
The most common cause of heel pain is plantar fasciitis, but it may also be due to other conditions such
as a stress fracture, Tendinitis or arthritis, nerve irritation, or a cyst. Because there are several potential
causes of heel pain, it is important to have it properly diagnosed. We may use diagnostic ultrasound
studies, x-rays, or other imaging modalities to distinguish the different types of heel pain. Once a
diagnosis is made, we will recommend the appropriate treatment.
Often, plantar fasciitis will go away on its own after a few months. Conservative treatment options for
plantar fasciitis include rest, ice, over-the-counter pain medication, stretching, exercises, splinting at night,
orthotics, or even athletic tape. It can also be helpful to choose supportive footwear to absorb the shock
of walking, maintain a healthy weight to avoid putting more pressure on the plantar fascia, replace highimpact aerobics or running with low-impact exercises, and even untucking bed sheets to avoid forcing
your feet into a pointed position. If the pain does not go away after a few months, we may recommend
steroid shots, physical therapy, or surgery. Kesler Podiatry offers a range of treatment options to clients
all over northern NJ.
