Heel Pain

Pain in the heel is a common and often debilitating complaint that may be caused by a number of different reasons. Heel pain may occur in one foot or both and may be worse at certain times of the day, such as in the morning, or during certain activities, such as walking, running or playing sport.


Heel or rear foot pain may be due to:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Heel spur
  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • Bursitis
  • Calcaneal (heel bone) stress fracture or bruise
  • Sever’s disease (in children)


In order to accurately diagnose your problem your podiatrist will conduct a thorough physical examination, observe your gait and may require you to get x-rays or an ultrasound.


The staff at Toorak Village Podiatry see new cases of heel pain on a daily basis and can provide effective treatment on your first visit.
