Heel Pain and Arch Supports
Heel and arch pain are two of the most common reasons patients come to a foot doctor. The pain often does not simply go away as so many patients think. The foot takes four times your body weight of pressure with every step you take, and you may take up to ten thousand steps in a day. Wow.
The most common diagnosis for this problem is called plantar fasciitis. This condition is caused by stress and strain to your arch ligament. The good news is that in most cases, surgery is not indicated. In other words, Dr. McQuaid can heal your pain in the office.
On average, Dr. McQuaid can relieve the painful symptoms of plantar fasciitis by up to 75% in just one visit. After the pain is improved, heel pain and arch stress often is controlled with foot inserts called orthotics. Orthotics can cure a variety of foot ailments as well as improve back, knee and hip pain.
