Cure heel pain for good
Plantar fasciitis is a common complaint affecting the bottom of the heel,with pain at times into the arch of the foot. The plantar fascia is a band of tissue which runs along the sole of your foot originating from the heel bone. Poor footwear, overuse and muscle imbalance can cause a build up of tension in the plantar fascia causing a small tear in the tendon. This may develop into a heel spur if left untreated. Weight bearing and walking can be extremely uncomfortable, with pain usually worse on the first few steps out of bed in the morning or after exercise.
How can Physiotherapy help?
Whether acute or chronic this heel pain responds quickly to physiotherapy intervention. The latest technology in the form of advanced Shock wave therapy is now available at the clinic here in Dunboyne, Co. Meath. Shock wave therapy has been proven highly effective in those with long term heel pain. The mechanical waves produced during treatment help break down calcifications and promote healing by increasing blood circulation in the damaged tissue.
Combining shockwave therapy with the correction of muscle imbalances will ensure heel pain in gone for good. You do not need a referral from your podiatrist or chiropodist.
