heel pain illustrationHeel pain, also known as plantar fasciitis, affects people of all ages and backgrounds. It is seen more frequently among those who play sports, suffer from diabetes, and the elderly. However, it is not seen only among these individuals.

You May Be Suffering Needlessly

When you are affected by heel pain, your whole world is affected. It can become difficult to do even the easiest of tasks such as getting out of bed in the morning. I want you to know that East Penn Foot and Ankle Associates can help!

All You Have To Do Is Come In To See Us

There are many conservative therapies we can discuss with you, such as stretching or applying heat or cold packs. We also are able to talk to you about the newest, state-of-the-art technologies available to help you get back on your feet in no time at all.

There Are New Procedures That Can Help

One option for treating heel pain is Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy which uses sound waves to heal your plantar fascia, the inflamed part of your foot that is most likely causing your pain. Another possible treatment is laser therapy.

The idea behind this painless procedure is that the energy from the laser penetrates about 12 centimeters below the skin, and is able to break up scar tissue in the connective tissues and the plantar fascia and create a healing process for your heel. The process takes about 15 minutes and can be finished in 3 to 6 treatments.

The most important thing for you to know is that you are not alone, and you don’t have to suffer from heel pain. We’ve dedicated our professional lives to helping people just like you to live happy, healthy lives.
