Plantar fasciitis/ Heel pain

Sydney Wide Podiatry Treatment of Plantar fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is a common condition that affects the heel and arch of the foot. It is caused by inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot from the heel bone to the toes. This condition is often characterized by sharp pain in the heel, especially when standing or walking.

Sydney Wide Podiatry is a trusted and experienced podiatry clinic that provides effective treatment for plantar fasciitis/heel pain throughout Sydney. Our team of highly skilled podiatrists use the latest techniques and technologies to help patients achieve optimal foot health.

At Sydney Wide Podiatry, we understand that plantar fasciitis can be a frustrating and debilitating condition. That’s why we offer a range of treatment options that are tailored to meet the individual needs of each patient. Our treatment plans may include:

  • Custom Orthotics: Orthotics are custom-made shoe inserts that are designed to provide support and relieve pressure on the plantar fascia. Our podiatrists use advanced 3D scanning technology to create orthotics that are specifically tailored to each patient’s foot.
  • Shockwave Therapy: This non-invasive treatment uses high-energy sound waves to stimulate the healing process and reduce pain and inflammation in the heel.
  • Stretching and Exercise: Our podiatrists will work with patients to develop a stretching and exercise program that can help to strengthen the muscles in the foot and relieve tension on the plantar fascia.
  • Medication: In some cases, medication such as anti-inflammatory drugs or corticosteroids may be prescribed to help manage pain and reduce inflammation.

At Sydney Wide Podiatry, we believe that education is key to preventing plantar fasciitis and other foot conditions. That’s why we work closely with our patients to provide them with the knowledge and tools they need to maintain optimal foot health. Our podiatrists are always available to answer questions and provide guidance on foot care.
