Heel Pain

Don’t Let Plantar Fasciitis Stop You!

It’s the first few steps in a morning, it’s standing up from the sofa, it’s while you’re running…and the thought is always the same - when will my heel pain get better? This is the eternal question wondered by anyone with heel pain that wants it to go away!

The road or path to recovery starts by stop wondering - as we have all the answers and we are going to lay it out in a few simple steps. We’ll explain the condition so that you understand what it is, what we can do to help you and how you can also help yourself.

Plantar fasciitis has been a problem for a long time and unfortunately, in the past, it hasn't been as well managed as it could have been by health professionals. This was simply because the research on the topic wasn't as advanced as it is currently.

Now we have the latest research, the latest technology, and the experience to help manage this problem quickly and more effectively than ever before. Take a look below as we educate and guide you through all the knowledge and the options available to you, to get rid of your pain and get you moving again.

What can be done?

As we touched upon at the start, changes in technology and research mean that treatment of heel pain is now extremely effective.

At MSK Sports Injury Clinic in Newcastle, we have a state of the art shockwave machine which is effective in the management of plantar fasciitis (check out our shockwave blog). This treatment involves a shockwave current (which are high energy sound waves) being placed through the heel to help stimulate healing of the injured tissue, which can sometimes be stubborn and need encouragement to heal!

Typically, treatment for this will take a few sessions to have the best impact and reduce your symptom level. Your shockwave treatment will be part of a course of therapy including a rehab plan with education and self-treatment measures which you can perform at home.
