All Heel Conditions

Updated 8/2/2021

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


The team of physicians at the 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.

  • A bone spur is the overgrowth of bone and they can develop on almost any bone. Two painful heel conditions are bone spur syndrome and Achilles bone spurs.

  • 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.
