All Heel Conditions

Updated 4/11/2019

In this video Meghan tells us about her heel surgeries and experiences as a patient of UFAI.


The team of physicians at University Foot and Ankle institute are nationally recognized experts in the treatment of heel conditions.

 

Our decades of combined experience and the state of the art technologies at our disposal allow us to offer the highest level of care with the very best outcomes.

 

We believe in treating heel conditions conservatively and avoiding surgery whenever possible. We strive to offer the best care, in a relaxed, professional environment.

  • The plantar fascia acts as a shock absorber, supporting your arch but too much pressure on your feet can damage or tear the ligament and cause stiffness and serious heel pain.

  • Often caused by lack of flexibility in the calf muscles and/or excess weight. This occurs when the foot bone has constant stress and calcium deposits build-up on the bottom of the heel.

  • Retrocalcaneal exostosis (Achilles bone heel spur) is an overgrowth of bone, typically from chronic tugging of the Achilles tendon with pain and swelling on the back of the heel.

  • Some plantar fasciitis may not be due to plantar fascia scarring, but a pinched nerve that runs along the ankle into the bottom of the heel. This is also called Baxter's Neuritis.
