Fall 2017 Events
Heel Pain Doc Talk
September 7th, 2017 at 5:30 pm
Runner’s Alley (website)
104 Congress Street, Portsmouth, NH 03801
Our doctors are runners and competitors in a variety of athletic events. They understand the setbacks and frustrations that injuries bring about. We will primarily discuss heel pain and its treatment options. We will discuss what you can do on your own and what you can do at our office that has little to no “downtime” (which is ideal for runners and athletes).
Plantar Fasciitis inflammation on the bottom of the foot. If you experience severe heel pain in the morning you may have a common overuse injury called plantar fasciitis. The tough, fibrous band of tissue (fascia) that connects your heel bone to the base of your toes has become inflamed.
Insertional Achilles Tendonitis pain at the back of the heel bone, with this you’ll experience morning stiffness and increasing soreness throughout the day. Usually patients have tight calf muscles and can develop a bone spur where the Achilles tendon inserts into the bone.
We will also offer Q&A time with attendees to ask us any podiatry question that they may have!
