There are many different reasons for the pain you are feeling in your heel. Plantar fasciitis, trauma, fat pad atrophy, fractures and nerve entrapment are all potential causes of persistent heel pain.
The team at Complete Podiatrist can help you find the cause of your heel pain, determine the best ways to manage it and help you build an amazing life free from heel pain.

We've invested in the best treatment options for your heel pain
Few Podiatry clinics invest in the number of high tech treatments as well as offer the most comprehensive range of hands-on treatment options like Complete Podiatry does.
Once we have established your treatment goals and expectations and performed a detailed biomechanical examination, we'll develop a plan for the treatment of your heel pain to include one or a combination of the following treatment options.
- Shockwave therapy
- Computer-aided designed and manufactured orthoses
- Strength and conditioning planning
- Exercise prescription
- Taping and strapping
- Foot mobilisation therapy
- Footwear advice and prescription
Despite what the Internet tells us, there is no "one best cure" for heel pain. Let our Podiatrists help you find the best treatment options for your needs and goals.
Whatever your goals, we'll help you build an amazing life free from heel pain
Healing any musculoskeletal usually does not occur in a straight line (unfortunately!) - there may be ups and downs with your heel pain and that is normal - but don't worry, we'll be there with you every step of the way.
We will work with you on multiple areas that contribute to your heel pain. This will include reducing stress on damaged tissues, hands-on treatment and exercise rehabilitation.
Sometimes progress moves quickly, and other times you might feel we have hit a plateau. What's important to know is that we need to trust the process and follow the personalised management plan your Podiatrist has developed for treating your heel pain.
It takes teamwork! What you do outside of the clinic is just as important as what we do within it - What you do at home will go a long way to you getting better, faster!
