Find out how your Marietta podiatrists can help you with your heel pain

The podiatrists at Premier Podiatry in Marietta, GA, are equipped with years of experience and knowledge of how to:

  • examine your feet
  • prescribe the proper course of treatment
  • create a custom plan according to your needs

This is especially necessary when it comes to resolving issues and problems, like heel pain.

Heel Pain Causes

The heel is the largest bone in your foot and, although it has more than 100 tendons, muscles, and ligaments, and 33 joints, this sturdy structure is subject to damage by external forces, according to the American Podiatric Medical Association.

Heel pain is a result of the foot's fascia, a connective tissue that extends from the heel of the foot to the toes, becoming irritated or inflamed. Heel pain is also a result of heel spurs, a growth on the bone that may be painless in many cases but may also result in chronic pain, arthritis, which is swelling of cartilage and lining in joints, or gout, which is the buildup of uric acid salts, a normal byproduct of the diet, in the joints. Other disorders and issues including, collagen disorders, nerve injuries, heel bone abnormalities, and tumors may also lead to heel pain.

Heel Pain Treatment

There are invasive surgical treatments to get rid of heel pain, such as the removal of connective tissue and heel spurs, but before going down that road, consider wearing comfortable shoes made of soft rubber, stretching your feet out daily, and avoiding rigorous sports and exercises.

For more information regarding your heel pain, contact Dr. Trevor Beach and Dr. I. Cristina Verlezza of Premier Podiatry at (770) 971-9820. Their office is conveniently located in Marietta, GA, for when you're ready to schedule an appointment with them.
