A qualified Chiropractor, Sports Therapist or Physiotherapist will be able to diagnose this problem through examination.

However a diagnostic ultrasound can determine the thickening of the plantar fascia and analyse the extent of the damage.

What are the common reasons for heel pain

Sudden damage, or damage that occurs over many months or years, can cause tiny tears (called microtears) to develop inside the tissue of the plantar fascia (the arch muscles of the foot).

This can cause the plantar fascia to thicken, and that results in heel pain.

The surrounding tissue and the heel bone can also sometimes become inflamed.

How do we treat heel pain

Plantar fasciitis can be self-limiting but will often persist over time.

Rest, stretching, wearing supportive shoes and pain relief can help to promote the healing process.
