Why Your Heels Really Hurt, Explains Panama City Podiatrist
|Heel pain is one of the most common complaints that podiatrists hear about from their patients. Most heel pain is caused by plantar fasciitis; the plantar fascia is a very thick band of tissue that has a rubber-band like structure spanning the length of the foot. When it becomes irritated or inflamed, it can result in severe pain. (On x-rays, heel spurs are seen in people with and without plantar fasciitis.)
Plantar fasciitis is most common in the following: people who are between the ages of 40 and 60; women; people who conduct strenuous exercise; obese people; people who work on their feet; and people who wear improper shoeshttp://www.mayoclinic.com/health/plantar-fasciitis/DS00508/DSECTION=risk-factors). It is also common in people who have a short first toe bone (also known as Morton’s Toe), according to Dr. Burton Schuler, a Panama City, Fl podiatrist and author of Why You Really Hurt: It All Starts in the Foot http://www.whyyoureallyhurt.com).
Morton’s Toe has a great impact on the foot’s pronation. The website explains: “Pronation allows the shock of our body weight to be absorbed when the foot meets the ground. Pronation also makes it possible for the foot to adapt to all of the different surfaces we walk on. This adaption (pronation) is only supposed take a moment so the foot can slow down in order to adjust to its new walking surface”
There are new treatments for plantar fasciitis such as Radial Shock Wave Therapy (RSWT). RSWT is an FDA approved non-surgical method for reducing foot pain and getting you back on your feet. It sends shockwaves, also known as pressure or sound waves, through the skin and on to the targeted tissue. When shockwaves make contact with the inflamed tissue they stimulate your body’s natural self-healing process http://free-news-release.com/Plantar-Fasciitis–When-Your-Heel-Bone-Becomes-Your-Hell-Bone-Detail_86246.html). Clearly, if you have heel pain and do not have Morton’s Toe, then any number of treatments–such as RSWT– may be tried. Dr. Schuler prescribes to those with Morton’s Toe and plantar fasciitis a simple toe pad placed under the first toe of each foot; a much simpler and reportedly highly effective treatment.
