Consult our Doctors @ Singapore Sports and Orthopaedic Clinic!

What type of Heel pain are you experiencing?

Plantar Faciitis

  • Pain upon standing
  • Pain while walking and climbing stairs.
  • A strained plantar fascia causes weakness, swelling, and inflammation, especially in one or both heels.

Heel pain is sometimes associated directly with plantar fasciitis, an inflammation of the plantar fascia at the bottom of the foot.  Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain. It is caused by repeated strain on the plantar fascia, the ligament that connects the heel bone to the toes, supporting the arch of the foot. Causes of plantar fasciitis include rolling the feet inward while walking; having high arches or flat feet; and running, walking, or standing for along periods of time. 

Achilles Tendinitis ( Heel Cord Pain )

  • Inflammation that causes pain and swelling on the large tendon.
  • small tears within the tendon and make the Achilles tendon susceptible to rupture.

Achilles Tendinitis is a syndrome of irritation of the achilles tendon in the ankle 

Achilles Tendon Rupture

  • Feel like being hit in the Achilles area

  • “Pop” sound

  • Pain, possibly severe, and swelling near your heel

  • Unable to lift up onto his or her toes while weight bearing

  • Limping

  • Develop bruising

Achilles tendon rupture is where the large tendon in the back of the ankle ruptures.

How Doctors know your medical condition?

Physical Examination

The chief diagnostic sign of these problems is pain in the bottom of the heel or arch when first standing, which gradually improves with walking. This pain may later return with continued walking. The pain usually subsides after a period of rest.

X-rays

X-rays are usually performed to evaluate for other possible conditions.X-rays show problems with bones, such as infection, bone tumors, or fractures.

MRI Scans 

The magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)  is needed to evaluate for the severity of the tear within the tendon.

What Doctors do to relieve your Heel Pain?

DIY Treatments & Therapy

Temporary treatment include icing the area by applying ice to the area of inflammation to help stimulate blood flow to the area, and relieve the pain associated with inflammation.

Physical Therapy Patients would require physio-therapy where physical therapists can help formulate a stretching and rehabilitation program to improve the flexibility of the Achilles tendon.

Injections & Medications

Anti-inflammatory drugs will be able to reduce pain and inflammation, although they do not treat the underlying problem. Anti-inflammatory injection will help to reduce the inflamamtion of the soft tissue. Shockwave therapy is one of of the form of treatment that is available for this condition.However surgery is needed to repair the ruptured tendon.
