Treatment Options; It can be solved!
We customise individual treatment plans once accurately diagnosed and causes established.
90% of cases of Plantar Fasciitis and heel pain can be treated without drugs, injections or surgery. There are numerous effective treatments available for heel pain & plantar fasciitis, each having their place for different people. What works for one person may not work for another.
A comprehensive assessment which may include diagnostic imaging means we can identify exactly what is causing the pain, sometimes it is not even in the foot! Finding out exactly WHAT is injured and WHY it is occurring is an important step on the road to recovery.
We use safe, effective and natural treatments to address your pain. Our treatment plans are based on ongoing reviews of medical literature and many years of experience treating heel pain conditions.
We often use a combination treatment based on the most appropriate for the person and problem at hand ;
- Offloading Strapping Techniques
- Splints, braces and socks
- Strengthening & Stretching
- Corrective Exercise Therapy
- Footwear Education
- Dry Needling
- Orthotics & In-Shoe Modifications
- Soft tissue therapy
- Joint mobilisation
In most cases 5 – 10 treatments over a 3-6 month period is where we see the best results for our patients.
