Your heel bone bears a lot of pressure supporting you each day, so it is not uncommon to experience heel pain due to a variety of reasons, from stepping on something hard to abnormal growths or tendon problems. Thankfully, at New Jersey Foot and Ankle, our board-certified physicians are experienced in treating a wide range of problems that could affect the heel, including:
- Achilles tendinitis – Inflammation of the Achilles tendon that connects the calf muscle to the heel bone
- Heel spurs – A bony growth on the underside of the heel bone
- Plantar fasciitis – Inflammation of the area of the fascia of the foot
- Bursitis – Swelling of the fluid-filled sac (bursa) at the back of the heel bone
- And many more
At New Jersey Foot and Ankle, we emphasize non-operative treatment whenever possible. Many times, our treatment for heel pain involves a combination of conservative and alternative methods such as medication management, acupuncture, and physical therapy. If these methods are unsuccessful, your doctor will speak to you about the range of minimally invasive surgeries we offer.
