New York podiatrist addresses heel painDo you have flat feet? Do you have terrible pain in your heel? Does it hurt any time you put weight on your heel? If you answered yes to any of these questions, a New York podiatrist can help you understand why and get your foot pain treated with the best options around.

The primary problem of the foot pain is due to the way you’re walking and how you bear weight when you walk. The secondary problem probably has to do with your plantar fasciia.

The plantar fasciia is the soft tissue ligament on the bottom of your foot leading from the heel to the toes. It acts as a trampoline to support your foot and bounce you along the ground as you walk.

Plantar Fasciitis is a common type of foot pain caused when there is a problem with this part of your foot structure. The pain comes when the area is torn, irritated and inflamed as a result of:

  • Activities that place a lot of stress on this part of your foot
  • Faulty foot structure
  • An occupation that requires you to be on your feet for extended periods of time

A New York podiatrist at Adler Footcare treats this type of foot pain every day of the week.

Treatments to Help Your Heel Pain

The first step you need to take is to change the way you’re walking, otherwise nothing will get resolved. Two good treatment options to help you do this are custom orthotics and HyProCure®.

Custom orthotics are shoe inserts that are made for your unique foot structure. They slide into your shoe and help offer you extra support where you need it so that you can control how your foot is bearing weight. It takes off the extra stress that is currently being put on your heel. The problem with custom orthotics is that they just help manage the pain instead of eliminating it. This is where HyProCure® comes in.

HyProCure® technology is unique and seeing impressive results. A stent is inserted into your foot. As soon as you take a step it rearranges the position of the bone in such a non-traumatic way that patients rarely experience any severe pain. The worst you might experience is the sensation of a mild sprain. You also won’t have to have any time off of your feet. You’ll be out of bandages within 3 to 5 days. You won’t be able to run or jump for 4 to 6 weeks, but after that you can live your life like normal. 

If you have control of how your foot bears weight with the help of custom orthotics or HyProCure® your heel pain problem will be taken care of because the stress won’t be going into that area of the foot anymore.
