One of the most common complaints that we see in our office is heel pain. Typically acute heel pain can be treated with simple conservative treatment such as stretching, night splints, NSAIDS, ice, inserts, cortisone injections, and physical therapy. When your heel pain is chonic it can frustrating and really limit your activity.
Dr. Saffer and Dr. Brown are both active individuals with a passion for running and know first hand what it feels like when you can not get back to your given athletic activity.
If conservative treatment has not resolved your heel pain you still have hope. Dr. Brown and Dr. Saffer our both trained on minimally invasive surgical options for chronic heel pain. Topaz, instep plantar fasciotomy, BioD restore injection, and Tenex are some of the surgical options that can be utilized for chronic heel pain (Plantar Fasciosis).
Our offices have both diagnostic ultrasound as well as digital x-ray to help confirm your type of heel pain. We have a proactive approach that keeps you active while you heal.
I have included in this blog links to this new state of the art injection for chronic heel pain.
