Heel Pain

Heel pain is extremely common and rarely requires surgery.

Here at Louetta Foot and Ankle Specialists, we conduct thorough heel pain evaluations aimed at helping heel pain sufferers avoid becoming chronic sufferers.

Some common conditions that cause heel pain:

Plantar fasciitis – Caused by inflammation in the tissue bands, or “fascia,” that run along the bottom of the foot. Plantar fasciitis is the proper name for what we commonly call “heel spurs.” Nonsurgical care includes custom orthotics, injection therapy, state-of-the-art shockwave therapy, personalized stretching programs, night splints and physical therapy.

Bursitis – Runners, athletes and others who spend a significant amount of time on their feet may develop bursitis where the Achilles tendon inserts into the heel bone. A thorough exam will help our foot and ankle specialists determine whether you have also developed a heel spur.

Neurologic causes of heel pain – Nerve entrapment can be the cause of heel pain. Patients feel a burning sensation on the heel that is aggravated by daily activities and may even persist at rest. The same conservative modalities that are used to treat plantar fasciitis are effective in treating this condition.

Our foot and ankle specialists perform comprehensive diagnostics, including ultrasound and sensory testing to get to the root of your heel pain problem. About 95% of our heel pain patients do not require surgery, and most enjoy pain relief after just one treatment.

After just 2 treatments with the MLS Laser for my ankle injury, I felt a significant decrease in pain and swelling.  I am very active in the gym so it was very important for me to heal quickly.  Each treatment is quick and painless as well which is a definite plus!  I would recommend this treatment to anyone in pain!

I wanted to thank you for being so tender with Hallie yesterday.  She was eager to tell me that you thought she was "99.9% perfect."  Although her psoriasis/arthritis in no way defines her, I know she is aware of her health versus her three sisters.  You were the best part of her day and it meant the world to me.

After having a severe case of Plantar Fasciitis, we tried all procedures and treatments to reduce pain and inflammation.  Nothing worked.  I was told by Dr. Bachmann of a new procedure, a laser treatment (MLS) that was new but very effective.  I tried it and after treatment #1 I already felt an improvement.  I'm on treatment 9 of 10 and can honestly say it has relieved the pain and constant irritation I was experiencing for the past 9 months.  I would recommend this treatment and the excellent service of Dr. Bachmann's team of health care professionals.

Dr. Bachmann, You did a great job on both my toes. I am healing well on this last one. It feels good to mark it off my "to do" list. Now I can start my step aerobics class again. Thank you for taking good care of me.

Dr. Walsh has been phenomenal! She had an awesome bedside manner with me as well as my children. Always talking them through every step of the way. You know you have found a lifelong doctor when you entrust your children's care to them. I have recommended Dr. Walsh to many of many friends and all have loved her.
