Your Favorite Queens, New York, Foot Doctors Reveals Surprising Causes Of Heel Pain

If you’re suffering from heel pain, you’re certainly not alone. At Weil Podiatry in Queens, New York, our podiatrists see may patients who are experiencing heel pain on a daily basis without explanation or relief. While some diagnoses such as plantar fasciitis may seem like the obvious culprit, often the discomfort has more surprising origins. Ultimately, a diagnosis can only be made by scheduling a consultation with your foot doctor, but in the meantime, here is a quick look a few conditions that may just be the real pain in your feet.

Stress Fractures

It’s understandable to think that you’d absolutely know if you’d broken a bone, but when excessive running, jumping, or exposure to other high-impact activities results in tiny cracks in your bones called stress fractures, you may have no idea they’re present other than a bit of swelling and some persistent heel pain. Your Queens, New York, foot doctor will do a physical examination and likely an x-ray to see whether a stress fracture is to blame for your daily pain.

Issues with Your Sciatic Nerves

Sciatica is a funny thing, although the pain a pinched or otherwise impinged sciatic nerve can cause is certainly no laughing matter. Lower back problems such as a herniated or slipped disc or issues with your hip and/or sacroiliac joint can damage the sciatic nerve and cause pain to radiate down the leg and into your heel, resulting in a burning, tingling, or aching sensation. If a spine injury is determined to be contributing to your heel pain, your podiatrist will likely refer you to a Queens-area neurosurgeon or orthopedic doctor who can give you the specialized care required.

Heel Bursitis

There are more than 150 little fluid-filled tissue sacs called “bursae” that help cushion and reduce friction between your bones, tendons and ligaments as you move. When one of those bursa becomes swollen and irritated, the resulting inflammation is referred to as bursitis. This condition, which is more common in athletes and people who wear shoes that lack support in the heel area, is generally progressive and can cause increasing heel pain the longer the affected person is on their feet.

Your heel is the one part of your body that takes the brunt of your daily activity without much thought or pampering. Isn’t it time to give the largest bone in your foot the TLC it deserves? If you’re experiencing unexplained heel pain or simply want to discuss your foot and ankle health with one of the leading foot doctors in Queens, New York, reach out to the expertly trained physicians at Weil Podiatry. Call 718.395.4904 to schedule your consultation today!
