Heel Pain / Plantar Fasciitis
New to the clinic - an ultrasound scanner. We are one of the few private clinics in the UK to have one.
As there are over 40 causes of heel pain it is important to arrive at the correct diagnosis as not all heel pain is plantar fasciitis! An ultrasound scanner is an invaluable tool because it enables us to actually see inside your foot. Ultrasound scanning brings diagnosis firmly into the 21st Century and is ideal for investigating heel pain, plantar fasciitis, policeman’s heel, Baxter's nerve entrapment and many other causes of heel pain.
Once we have arrived at the correct diagnosis we can devise a custom treatment program which may include stretches, strengthening, orthotics, and injection therapy.
All plantar fasciitis injections will be ultrasound guided for pin-point accuracy.
For very painful heel pain / plantar fasciitis please contact Central Reception on 01493 301226 as we may have a cancellation or have an urgent reservation available.

I came to the Podiatry Clinic after 6 months of chronic plantar pain. I had just retired and was very worried as the pain never went away......I tried everything; exercises, stretches, icing, but nothing worked. But thank goodness I came here - Graeme was my saviour: he was professional, supportive and very knowledgeable. He designed a treatment plan for me that has worked fantastically well........I am almost pain free now, and walking 10,000 steps a day with no twinges. Highly recommended!!!
