Pain Free is an Option

Are you one of the many individuals suffering from chronic heel pain? Any pain that lasts more than a few consecutive days should be treated by a professional. Don’t let the fear of treatment sway you from coming to see us. No matter the extreme or cause Carolina Foot Specialists will make sure you have the knowledge you need to make the best decisions for your route to being pain free.

What are some options?  

Padding and strapping.
Placing pads in the shoe softens the impact of walking. Strapping helps support the foot and reduce strain on the fascia.

Orthotic devices.
Custom orthotic devices that fit into your shoe help correct the underlying structural abnormalities causing the plantar fasciitis

Injection therapy.
In some cases, corticosteroid injections are used to help reduce the inflammation and relieve pain.

Removable walking cast.
A removable walking cast may be used to keep your foot immobile for a few weeks to allow it to rest and heal.

Night splint.
Wearing a night splint allows you to maintain an extended stretch of the plantar fascia while sleeping. This may help reduce the morning pain experienced by some patients.

Physical therapy.
Exercises and other physical therapy measures may be used to help provide relief.
