You don't have to live with pain. We're here to help.
Heel pain and chronic heel pain send millions of Americans to the doctor every year. Many are diagnosed with plantar fasciitis, a common cause -- but if you are misdiagnosed, those same treatments can make the problem much worse by not addressing the underlying condition. The wrong treatment can cause more pain, affect your ability to walk and run, and negatively impact your quality of life.
Our multidisciplanary center provides nonsurgical care and diagnosis of heel pain conditions and injuries. Our experts come from a wide range of specialties including podiatry, physiatry, sports medicine and pain management. Their experience and collaboration, combined with our state-of-the-art imaging and radiology techniques, offers unparalleled expertise and care for patients. If you have chronic pain, sudden acute pain, or would like a second opinion, our team can help diagnose the cause of your heel pain and provide treatment.
Some other causes of heel pain include:
Not treating or receiving the wrong treatment could trigger and make worse serious health issues, including cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes, obesity, osteoporosis, and depression.
