BETHLEHEM, PA, April 09, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- If one step causes a shooting pain to go through a patient's heel, especially when waking up in the morning to get out of bed, he or she may suffer from heel pain in Bethlehem. Occurring also when standing after sitting for an extended period of time, heel pain is not something to be ignored. Patients in Bethlehem with heel pain are encouraged to contact Dr. Kevin Fallon Kline at Bethlehem Podiatry Fallon-Kline Foot & Ankle for proper treatment planning.
Heel pain can occur in the front, back, or bottom of the heel and can also be a way to alert us to seek medical attention. With the many complaints that contribute to heel pain, it is important to take all precautions necessary in avoiding heel pain or seeking treatment upon the initial onset of heel pain in Bethlehem.
"Pain is the enemy of the body and when you experience heel pain, it can take a toll on your daily activities. By visiting my office, I can properly diagnose your pain and provide you with an appropriate treatment plan to help eliminate your pain. By taking a stand against heel pain, you can continue to complete your day-to-day tasks without complications," said Bethlehem foot and ankle doctor, Dr. Kevin Fallon Kline.
To properly treat heel pain in Bethlehem, treatment must absorb shock, provide cushioning and elevate the heel in order to transfer the pressure off of the heel. Treatment may include various non-surgical techniques such as:
- Stretching exercises
- Avoid going barefoot
- Limit activities
- Shoe modifications
Dr. Kline, a podiatrist, foot and ankle doctor in Bethlehem, may recommend an orthotic designed with materials that will absorb shock and shear forces. An orthotic with medial posting and good arch support can help control the pronation and prevent inflammation. By scheduling an appointment with Dr. Kline, patients can find the best treatment option available for relieving their heel pain in Bethlehem.
Footwear selection is also a very important aspect to consider when treating heel pain at Bethlehem Podiatry Fallon-Kline Foot & Ankle. Shoes with a firm heel counter, good arch support, and appropriate heel height are the ideal choice for protection of a patient's feet. Heel pain needs treatment to prevent it from becoming worse, or from becoming a persistent pain. If untreated, heel pain can keep patients from getting much-needed exercise and it can also lead to back, knee and hip problems, and other foot conditions, affecting the way he or she walks.
