Our Caring Doctor Helps Relieve Your Pain
If you’re experiencing heel pain, it may be due to a heel spur. A heel spur is a protective, bony growth that forms on your heel oftentimes associated with plantar fasciitis. Heel spurs can make every step you take painful, so it can be a massive disruption to your life. Our experts offer heel spur treatment in Flagstaff, AZ, to relieve your pain and let you live your life freely!
Diagnosing a Heel Spur
If you’re experiencing heel pain, you may need X-rays to rule out a heel spur. Though many doctors don’t take the time to fully understand any underlying causes of your heel spur, that is not the case with us. We work collaboratively with you so that we can fully understand your condition and what the root cause of it is.
The conditions that most often cause heel spurs include:
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Ankylosing spondylitis, chronic inflammation of the spine
- Reactive arthritis, also known as Reiter’s disease
- Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis, also known as DISH or Forestier’s disease
Of course, not every case of heel spurs are related to these conditions, but we believe in creating a treatment plan based on fully and completely understanding what is causing your pain.
Treatment for Your Heel Spur
If you have a heel spur, our doctor may recommend non-surgical treatment options first. If these don’t work to relieve your pain, you may be presented with the option of surgery. Typically, rest may not be the best way to deal with plantar fasciitis and heel spurs. If you walk after a prolonged period of rest, your plantar fascia elongates, which pulls on the heel, causing pain.
Using a combination of tried and true treatments along with the latest technology, our physicians are better able to treat your heel pain than ever before. One of the newest advancements in podiatric technology is EPAT (Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology), also known as shock wave therapy. EPAT is a non-invasive method to treat both acute and chronic heel pain — it works hand-in-hand with other regenerative treatments and effectively relieves pain caused by connective tissue disorders, such as heel spurs.
Letting your symptoms and needs guide us, along with state-of-the-art diagnostic tests, we will craft a customized treatment plan for your heel pain together.
