No more excuses for staying at home on the couch now that spring is here! You may have been babying your feet all winter, knowing you have heel pain or some other foot problem. But the truth is even though it's still rainy and cloudy you know that the sun is on its way. And you won't be prepared to go running or walking around Green Lake or hiking in the mountains if you don't do something now.
You may not be the type to seek out a doctor unless you're in horrible pain. But listen, you will be in horrible pain the longer you wait particularly once you start pounding the pavement.
You've probably perused the shelves at your local pharmacy for some shoe inserts and you may have already tried them. And they've worked pretty well during football season when the farthest you've had to walk is from the couch to the TV or making short trips to the grocery store to pick up beer or grab a pizza. But off the shelf inserts aren't likely to cut it once you have to walk farther than a couple of blocks.
Long standing heel pain is nothing to mess around with. When your body is in pain it's a signal something is wrong. Heel pain or plantar fasciitis occurs when the fascia that stretches from your heel to the base of your toes becomes inflamed.
At the Foot and Ankle Center of Lake City Dr. Rion Berg has provided comprehensive care for heel pain for over 30 years. Most people with longstanding heel pain can see their pain reduced by 50% in less than a month using our 5 pronged approach.
