Helping You Manage Your Heel Pain

How your podiatrists in Woodstock and Jasper, GA, can help with heel pain

If you are suffering from heel pain, you may not want to get up off of the couch! Even standing and walking around can be painful. Fortunately, your podiatrist can help you manage your heel pain, so you can live your active, busy life.

Dr. Bret Hintze and Dr. Andrea Cass at Foot & Ankle Reconstruction of North Georgia offer a wide range of podiatry services, including treatment of heel pain. They have two convenient locations in Woodstock, and Jasper, GA, to help you and your feet feel better.

Runners and joggers often suffer from heel pain caused by plantar fasciitis. This condition is the result of the thick band of tissue on your heel, known as the plantar fascia, becoming inflamed.

You don’t have to be an athlete to suffer from heel pain. You can also develop heel pain from:

  • Stepping on sharp stones, causing a heel bruise
  • Excess calcium deposits on your heel, causing a heel spur

No matter what has caused your heel pain, you can try a few simple tips to get relief. You can try:

  • Icing your heel several times each day
  • Taking over-the-counter pain and anti-inflammatory medication
  • Elevating your feet to take the pressure off your heels
  • Placing inserts or wedges in your shoes to cushion and support your heels

If you have moderate to severe heel pain that doesn’t respond to home therapies, you need to visit your podiatrist. Common professional treatments for heel pain include:

  • Custom footwear or orthotics to provide support
  • Physical therapy and stretching exercises to keep you flexible
  • Extracorporeal shock wave treatment (ESWT) to break up calcium deposits

To learn more about the management and treatment of heel pain, call Dr. Bret Hintze and Dr. Andrea Cass at Foot & Ankle Reconstruction of North Georgia. You can reach them in the Woodstock, GA, office by calling (770) 999-0703, or in Jasper, GA, by calling (770) 999-0804, so call now.
