What will happen if I ignore my heel pain?

Heel painIf you don’t treat your heel pain early in its onset, it is much harder to resolve. The affected tissues become chronically inflamed and don’t respond as well to treatment. When you seek a remedy right away, we can usually cure heel pain with appropriate shoe choices, stretching, and custom orthotics. If you do put off getting help, however, don’t fret. Conservative treatments can still resolve your discomfort, though it may take longer and be more involved. Very rarely does anyone need surgery for heel pain—more than 95% of patients with the problem are healed using noninvasive measures.

Don’t wait to have your heel pain resolved. Contact Podiatry Associates, P.C. for an appointment or more information on how to take care of your feet. You can reach our Castle Pines, Cherry Creek, and Parker locations by visiting our online contact page or calling (303) 805-5156.
