It always amazes me how much pain someone is willing to put up with before they make an appointment to see me. One of those conditions is heel pain. While it certainly won't kill you it can make you pretty miserable while you have it.

It doesn't need to be like that.

OK. Maybe you dislike doctors. You've had bad experiences in the past and you don't want to repeat it. Or perhaps you're just an extremely busy mom juggling work and kids and you don't have the time to come in to get treatment. Maybe you've even tried a few things like icing or stretching your calf muscles to see if that will work.

I totally get it. The problem is heel pain doesn't usually resolve on its own.

That's because heel pain or plantar fasciitis takes a multi-pronged approach to resolve. And unless your feet are evaluated and diagnosed properly you're really shooting in the dark to try and get rid of it.

The Foot and Ankle Center of Lake City has been treating heel pain for over 30 years so we know how to pinpoint the exact foot issues causing your pain to begin with. And with that comes the right solutions.
