Heel Pain Treatment in Memphis, Tennessee

What causes Heel Pain & Plantar Fasciitis?

Picture showing a strained plantar fascia, a cause of heel pain.Heel pain is one of the leading problems that causes patients to visit Dr. Steven Chase. Plantar fasciitis (or heel pain) is commonly traced to an inflammation on the bottom of the foot. Dr. Chase can evaluate your pain, and may prescribe customized shoe inserts called orthotics to help alleviate the pain you are experiencing.

Plantar fasciitis is caused by inflammation of the connective tissue that stretches from the base of the toes, across the arch of the foot, to the point at which it inserts into the heel bone. Also called “heel spur syndrome,” the condition can usually be successfully treated with conservative measures such as use of anti-inflammatory medications and ice packs, stretching exercises, orthotic devices, and physical therapy.
