Heel Pain Relief from Experienced Podiatrists & Foot Doctors In Wauwatosa, Oak Creek, New Berlin & Mequon, WI
Heel pain is most often caused by plantar fasciitis, also known as heel spurs. No matter how you say it, one thing is certain: heel pain is awful! When pain meets you each time you place your foot on the ground, you want to take fewer and fewer steps. You rest, ice, and rest some more, hoping the pain in your heel will get better on its own. To manage the pain and try to get by, you take pain pill after pain pill. At some point, though, something has to give. You have to get heel pain relief from a Milwaukee podiatrist.
Milwaukee Foot & Ankle Specialists know it can be difficult to admit defeat and be seen by a podiatrist, but there is no shame in getting help for your heel pain. If your child were hurting, or your husband or wife, you would insist that they get the help they need to end their pain. Why should you be any different?
Determining The Root Cause of Your Heel Pain
Too many times, doctors don’t work hard enough to determine the underlying factors that are causing your heel pain. While it may be true that your heel spurs simply are caused by plantar fasciitis (an inflammation of the tendons that run under the sole of your foot and attach at the heel), other underlying medical issues could also be the cause of your heel pain. The diseases that most often cause plantar fasciitis and heel spurs include:
- Reactive arthritis (Reiter’s disease)
- Ankylosing spondylitis (chronic inflammation of the spine)
- Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH or Forestier’s disease)
Not every case of plantar fasciitis and the accompanying heel spurs are caused by these conditions. However, our Wisconsin foot doctors strongly believe that no treatment plan is complete unless we are certain about what is causing your heel pain first.
