When a patient comes to our clinic with heel pain, the most common cause is plantar fasciitis. One in ten people will get plantar fasciitis during their lifetime, and the condition usually strikes in middle age. The pain that plantar fasciitis causes typically is noticed with the first step out of bed which interferes with the enjoyment of daily activities, and reduces the quality of life.
Dr. Hawra Alzamely, BPod, is an experienced podiatrist that provides treatment of foot and ankle problems, including heel pain.
