Heel Pain Specialist in Augusta GA

 

On average, people take 6,000 to 10,000 steps each day. With each step there are normal movement patterns that should be completed. When these patterns deviate from normal, a variety of conditions can often result.

Heel pain is a common complaint for which there are a variety of causes, and most cases of heel pain have a mechanical cause. Heel pain is the leading complaint of many other more serious conditions so it’s important to diagnose the cause of your pain.  Common causes of heel pain include the following:

Heel Spurs

Heel spurs develop when the lining that covers the heel is continuously stretched. When this occurs, pieces of the lining may break off. Heel spurs typically develop in athletes who frequently run or jog. They are also common in people who are obese.

Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis develops when the tissue connecting the heel to the ball of the foot becomes inflamed. Plantar fasciitis also occurs in athletes who frequently run or jog. It can also result from wearing shoes that do not fit properly.

Excessive Pronation

Excessive pronation occurs when the ligaments and tendons at the back of the heel are stretched too much. This condition can occur when injuries to the back, hips, or knees change the way you walk.

Achilles Tendinitis

Achilles tendinitis can occur when the Achilles tendon, which runs along the back of the heel, becomes inflamed. This condition is common in people with active lifestyles who frequently run and jog, professional athletes and dancers.

 

What Are the Complications of Heel Pain?

Heel pain can be disabling and affect your daily movements. It may also change the way that you walk. If this happens, you may be more likely to lose your balance and fall, making you more prone to other injuries.
