NEW YORK, NY, January 22, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- We rely on our feet to take us places, but when you experience heel pain in New York City, walking to your kitchen can seem too painful. Plantar fasciitis is also referred to as heel pain, which is where the band of tissue from the heel bone to the toes becomes inflamed. This results in pain underneath the heel that I typically at its worst early in the morning.
To help patients overcome their heel pain, Dr. Kenneth Meisler and his team of podiatrists in New York City, NY work together to provide important information on available treatment options. From at home remedies, to in office care, Dr. Meisler is available to help his patients improve the health of their feet so they can live pain free.
"The first step you need to take if you are experiencing pain is to rest your feet. Repetitive motions can lead to inflammation, and taking a break from running or other intense physical activity can give your feet time to heal. It is not necessary to give up on physical activity altogether but you might want to try low-impact activities such as swimming or bicycle riding that place less stress on your feet," said Dr. Kenneth Meisler, a podiatrist in New York City.
When taking a break from physical activity, patients should review how their shoes are fitting. Shoes that are too tight, worn out or have poor arch supports can lead to heel pain. If a person's shoes are fairly new, they may be enhanced through the placement of a special shoe insert, heel cup or a supportive gel heel pad. At night, patients can also wear splints that flex the foot to stretch the feet and calf muscles, reducing tension.
Patients can also minimize pain while healing by applying a cloth-covered ice pack to the bottom of their foot and heel. By doing this twice a day for 10 to 15 minutes, patients can experience relief from their pain. And if a patient in New York City's heel pain does not respond to at-home treatments, Dr. Kenneth Meisler will evaluate to determine if their pain is indicating a more severe condition.
