We treat heel pain every day at Lower Limb, Belfast. The most common types are Plantar Fasciitis and Achilles Tendonitis (mid-portion & insertional)
We have invested in training such as steroid injection therapy and technology including ultrasound, shockwave, force plates, 3D gait analysis and our own in-clinic fully 3D custom orthotic manufacturing (game changer!).
NOT ALL HEEL PAIN IS THE SAME - You need an in-depth assessment first of all to design a bespoke treatment plan for YOUR condition!
If you are an athlete you may want to be assessed via Run3D Gait analysis in the first instance, this will help rule out any underlying biomechanical/running style issues first of all.
If you are not a sports person then a 'Lower Limb Injury Assessment' should be your assessment of choice.
Once your heel pain had been assessed we can plan out your treatment using the latest evidence-based approach.
We have all the latest tools to assess and treat. Our skilled staff members regularly attend CPD updates and will provide you with the best care and advice.
