Two common conditions treated by this top Helmetta podiatrist are heel pain and sports injuries. Heel pain is most often caused by overuse, instead of an injury. Heel pain as a result of overuse can be due to many things, including wearing shoes with poor support, running too often, especially on hard surfaces, sudden turning of your heel, or landing too hard or awkwardly on your heel. Connective tissue that runs from the toes to the heel bone causes heel pain, also known as heel spur syndrome. There are many types of treatment for heel pain, depending on the severity of your pain, including anti-inflammatory medications, ice packs, stretching exercises, orthotic devices, and/or physical therapy. The most common foot problems caused by sports-related activities are blisters, corns, cellulitis, athlete’s foot, Achilles tendonitis, and heel pain. Preventive measures include using proper foot hygiene which includes keeping your feet dry, wearing clean socks, making sure your shoes fit properly and making sure you do not overstrain your legs, ankles, and feet. If you develop recurring and/or increasing foot or ankle aches and pains, you should make an appointment as soon as possible to avoid causing permanent damage.
