Far too many Americans are quick to dismiss foot issues—like heel pain—as being something normal or “not a big deal.” When it comes to your feet, we’re talking about valuable structures essential for providing stability and enabling you to move around – if they’re hurting, you need to do something about it!
The good news is Richardson Podiatry Center makes it easy for you to know what to do – simply come in and see us!
Dr. David Haddad will accurately diagnose the condition and then create an effective, customized treatment plan to resolve the problem for you. Even better, many causes of heel pain are successfully treated with conservative (nonsurgical) care, and some can even be prevented from developing in the first place.
Heel Anatomy: A Contributing Factor to Heel Pain
Your hindfoot is made up of the calcaneus (heel bone) and talus (ankle bone), which sits on top of it. The calcaneus is the biggest bone in your foot, and it serves as an anchor for a couple of important connective tissues – the plantar fascia and Achilles tendon. These tissues play a certain role in some of the most likely sources of pain in the back of your foot (plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis).
