Do you have Heel Pain?

HEEL PAIN is also known as plantar fasciitis. This unwanted pain could suddenly increase with running and walking. This condition is a result of inflammation of the band of tissue (the plantar fascia), which extends from the heel to the toes. Repetitive activities can put a lot of stress on the foot ligaments.

The key to eliminating the pain is early treatment. Our Physicians can help you find relief with therapies such as: Anti-inflammatory medications, stretching exercises, custom orthotics, footwear modifications, physical therapy, activity modifications and PRP injections. PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) injections use your own platelets and blood cells to help stimulate healing in our heel.  Most patients respond well to non-surgical treatments. Our Board Certified physicians & surgeons can discuss all your options available. Contact Dr.’s Bishop*, Rappette*, at the location near you.
