There are a number of possible causes of heel pain ranging from flexible shoes to autoimmune disease (rheumatoid arthritis). Not surprisingly, there are a number of treatment methods for temporary and permanent heel pain relief.
Range of Treatment Intensity and Invasiveness
The cause and intensity of heel pain often dictates the type of treatment, which generally progresses to more invasive methods as pain persists or worsens.
For new onset and/or low level of heel pain, minimally invasive treatment options include:
- Ice applications
- Over the counter pain relievers
While rest does help reduce inflammation and encourage natural healing, it may also limit the length of time you can be on your feet, walk or run.
If pain persists or worsens, you may need to consult your health care provider, who may recommend more intense heel pain relief treatments like:
- Prescription medications
- Corticosteroid injections
- Custom-made orthotics
- Devices designed to limit or accommodate movement
If all other treatment options fail to provide sufficient heel pain relief, surgery may be considered, but as a last resort. Advanced treatment like cortizone injections often mask the pain, allowing the heel pain to fester or even get worse. Treating the cause of heel pain is always the preferred alternative for safe as lasting results.
Most Effective and Least Invasive Option
It is possible to get effective pain relief without hampering your active lifestyle and without needing invasive treatments. Surprisingly, the key is simple—rigid foot support.
Excessive foot flexibility is the common denominator of most conditions causing heel pain. The right footwear can significantly increase mid-foot and heel support, which reduces the plantar ligaments from detaching or becoming irritated at or near heel bone (Calcaneus). Proper support will encourage natural healing without requiring you to be off your feet and provide a natural pain relief alternative.
