Foot and heel pain is quite a common presentation.  Your bone, heel fat pad, ligaments, tendons or muscles can be the culprit.  Heel pain can also be referred by irritation of nerves in your lower back.

Having your foot and heel pain thoroughly assessed ensures any subsequent treatment and advice is targeted at the source of the problem.  An Osteopath is qualified to assess and treat your foot and provide all important evidence-based advice.

Some of the more common conditions we see in the clinic are:

  • Osteoarthritis of the foot
  • Radiculopathy
  • Sciatica
  • Fat Pad Syndrome
  • Calcaneal Spur
  • High Ankle Sprain
  • Stress Fractures of the long bones
