In this months blog we wanted to share a client experience of heel pain and how we worked with her on her road to recovery.
It happened out of nowhere as I was walking along the beach. The sharp pain under my foot took me by surprise and I had such intense heel pain. I tried to understand what was happening thinking it was just temporary and would soon go away. I purchased some remedies and hoped for the best.
Trying different options
Walking was too important and a solution had to be found. I tried different insoles and shoes, however nothing seemed to be working. The pain got so bad that it reached the point I was not able to walk anymore. I ended up at the hospital and felt such despair as covid was just starting.
I ended up at Active Step Foot & Ankle Clinic and I was lucky to find them. They helped me with strengthening exercises, shockwave therapy and custom made orthotics. I am walking again comfortably and covering the miles I used to cover. The pain under the foot has gone and I am back walking on the beach again!
At Active Step we took an evidence based approach, with gold standard treatment, combining therapies to get the best outcome.
