Can I Get Rid of my Heel Pain Without Shots?

answerHeel pain can occur for a number of reasons, but treatment doesn’t necessarily have to involve injections. If you prefer a more holistic approach, in many cases you can avoid heel pain shots with conservative treatments such as a change in footwear, physical therapy, or shoe inserts to ease discomfort. Custom orthotic devices can help to correct biomechanical issues that contribute to the problem by redistributing pressure away from the area. Stretching exercises can also help to alleviate pain. Another alternative to shots for heel pain is shockwave therapy. This non-invasive procedure not only relieves pain, but actually helps to repair damaged tissues that may be causing the problem. It takes just 20 minutes, and relief is near instantaneous. Aftercare is not necessary, but we can provide a holistic pain cream as follow-up treatment if you’d like.
