Be Active Without Heel Pain

Have you ever thought of taking a leap on a flying trapeze? If you live in Dallas, TX you can! Skyline Trapeze welcomes aerial arts enthusiasts of all skill levels—or those brave enough to try—to come out for a session. Whether it is taking to the air, running on the ground in a local 5K race, or even a workout at the gym, it is not easy to stay active if you have nagging heel pain. There are many reasons heel discomfort can develop, but with the right treatment from Dallas Podiatry Works, you can maintain an active lifestyle without it.

Be Active Without Heel PainHeel pain can occur from Achilles tendonitis, bursitis, a fracture, a heel spur, pinched nerve, arthritis, or plantar fasciitis, to name a few of the many causes. Depending on the nature of your condition or injury, it is often wise to take some time off from activity to give the area a chance to heal. Apply ice packs to the area, and we can recommend the right anti-inflammatory medication to control any swelling. With a heel injury, you don’t have to give up an active lifestyle altogether; you just may need to make some modifications. Avoiding high impact activities can keep your discomfort to a minimum and help prevent re-injury. Cross train with swimming and cycling, both of which are great forms of exercise that will boost your heart rate and keep your body lean and strong.

You can reduce the impact on your feet with the use of inserts or custom orthoticsin your shoes, too. They not only work to keep your feet stabilized and supported, but also offer extra cushioning to help absorb shock each time your foot strikes the ground. With plantar fasciitis, splints worn at night can also prepare your feet for the next day’s plans, as well as stretching and strengthening exercises.

We want you enjoying your life to the fullest, so contact Dallas Podiatry Works if you have been suffering with heel pain. Call Dr. Joel W. Brook, Dr. David R. Northcutt, Dr. Irene Arroyo and Dr. John Baca in Dallas, TX at (972) 566-7474 or in Plano, TX at (972) 943-3323 for an appointment today.
