Heel Pain: Path to Relief and Mobility

What Is Heel Pain or What Causes It?

Heel pain, commonly experienced in Leeds, can manifest as discomfort in the heel or arch area and may even affect the big toe. It’s often felt when standing, walking, or getting out of bed, and may appear as acute pain in the morning that eases but returns later.

Symptoms of Heel Pain You May Be Experiencing

Typical symptoms include pain under the heel or in the arch, often intensifying with first steps in the morning or after prolonged standing or walking.

Treatment Options for Heel Pain

At Indergaard Physiotherapy, we provide a comprehensive assessment to identify the cause, be it plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinopathy, or other conditions. We offer advanced treatments like Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) for effective pain relief and tissue regeneration.

Preventive Measures and Lifestyle Changes for Heel Health

Incorporating foot exercises, wearing supportive footwear, and avoiding prolonged standing can help prevent heel pain.

I have used Will previously with another issue that he helped me resolve. He’s lovely to deal with & I was clear when I left about what I needed to do to sort out this new problem. Very knowledgeable & I felt a lot happier when I came out than when I went in! Always recommend him. Thanks Will 😊

Will was a very knowledgable practitioner and gave clear and concise verbal information about my condition and treatment techniques.Great that he read through all the documentation. I sent him and his assessment was an enhancement not a duplication of what has happened before.
