When heel pain first emerges, you can often treat it effectively right from the comfort of your own home. If it’s a simple flare up of discomfort caused by stress or repetitive activity—for example, a long day of standing or working on your feet, or from starting up a new sport or running route—often a few days of rest is more than enough to get your feet back in top shape. Stretching your feet and calves, using ice or non-prescription painkillers, and making sure your shoes fit well and offer sufficient cushioning and arch support are also recommended.
When pain continues to persist for several days or longer, you should take the next step and give Absolute Foot Care Specialists in Las Vegas a call. We specialize in determining the root cause of your pain and developing a personalized treatment plan to meet your needs quickly and effectively. To schedule with us, please dial (702) 839-2010.
