heel pain

At Ankle and Foot Specialty Clinic, heel pain is a very common complaint among patients seeking our services.

There are many possible reasons for heel pain including plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, bursitis, nerve problems, heel pad disorders, stress fractures, infection, arthritis (including gout), overuse injuries, sprains, and more. Dr. Sheridan is able to determine what the cause is for your particular heel pain through X-rays, ultrasounds, and diagnostic evaluations.

He will then tailor your treatment to your diagnosis, with a focus on conservative treatment options. In fact, 80% of our patients get healed with no surgery, and most are walking without pain approximately in 5 weeks. This is accomplished through Dr. Sheridan’s vast experience along with the latest in technology to find and treat your heel problem. For example, laser treatments have been very helpful in accelerating the healing process while relieving pain and inflammation. 

If all conservative techniques have been exhausted and surgery becomes necessary, Dr. Sheridan has perfected a very successful minimal incision approach to get you walking the same day of your surgery.   

At Ankle and Foot Specialty Clinic, we have a proven track record of healing our patients’ heel problems. Please contact us for more information and to schedule your appointment.
