A common question we get asked is can physiotherapy help with heel pain?
The answer is a big fat YES.
Types of heel pain we can help:
Plantar fasciitis is the most common heel pain condition physiotherapists can help with. It is a condition characterised by excessive traction on the thick fibrous tissue at the bottom of the foot that runs from the heel to the toes. In typical cases of plantar fasciitis, physiotherapy treatments are ideal to regain a pain-free foot and resume normal activities of daily living and sport.
Physiotherapy can help in several ways, including:
Assisting to offload the tendon by taping to support the arch
Assisting to reduce compression on the tendon via ultrasonic therapy
Soft tissue therapy and specific strength training exercises
The good thing is conditions involved with heel pain, like plantar fasciitis, can be reversible and successful treated. Early detection and treatment is what will significantly influence the severity and duration of the condition
