Understanding Different Types of Heel Pain

Did you know that your heel bone is the largest bone in your foot? If you have heel problems you definitely know how painful and debilitating heel pain can be! Your heel takes a beating as it absorbs much of the shock and pressure put on your feet on a daily basis.

Knowing what might be the cause of your heel pain is the first step in finding the right course of treatment. Drs. Joel Brook and David Northcutt, foot specialists in Dallas and Plano, TX diagnose and treat heel pain on a daily basis. Some of the common reasons patients have heel pain include:

Bursitis

A bursa is a small fluid filled sac acts as a shock absorber in your foot. Bursitis develops when the bursa become inflamed due to too much pressure. The fat pad on the bottom of your feet can thin over time also leading the bursa in your foot to become inflamed.

Heel Spurs

When your plantar fascia stretches and pulls away from the heel bone, calcium deposits can form causing a heel spur. People with flat feet are particularly at risk for this condition. Wearing high heels on a regular basis can also increase your risk for developing heel spurs.

Stone Bruise

Blunt trauma or an impact injury to your heel can cause a deep contusion to occur in the tissues of your heel. You may not see it but it is there. The bruise may cause you to feel as though you are constantly walking on a pebble. It can be very painful and require rest, ice, elevation, anti-inflammatories and patience while it heals.

RATED BEST DALLAS PODIATRIST FOR YOUR FOOT & ANKLE CARE NEEDS
"I did 3 EPAT treatments and it gave me tremendous relief from my plantar fasciitis. I highly recommend this for anyone who is dealing with PF. Also, the physical therapist Dr. Brook sent me too is fantastic. I am definitely on the mend and so glad I did EPAT."- All H. 5 star
"Dr Northcutt is a fantastic physician. My first surgery with him (although painful), went very well. A couple of issues (with his staff) needed to be corrected, I appreciated his calm and professional demeanor and he corrected those issues promptly. He sets the bar high (the mark of a great physician), and that is the key reason why I'm coming back to him to correct my other foot. I would highly recommend him."- She B. 5 star

"My experience was a good one from pre-op to post -op. I saw the doctor right before my surgery.He explained the process to me and my husband. The recovery nurse was great. It was neither crowded or chaotic as some day surgery centers. My foot is doing well as I follow instructions. I look forward to my one week progress visit!"- Patricia T.5 star
"I had dealt with a painful foot problem for five months and had seen three different Doctors before seeing an article in D Magazine about Dr. Joel Brook. Dr. Brook took one look at my foot, explained the causes for my pain and set me up on a successful treatment plan. He is very knowledgeable, thorough and exhibits a caring attitude. I highly recommend him."- Ginger W. 5 star
