In most cases, heel pain is not caused by a single injury but by repetitive or constant pressure on the heel over prolonged periods. For that reason, it’s important to have an accurate diagnosis of your feet and then apply the most effective treatment possible to avoid further injuries.
Common causes of Heel Pain include:
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Achilles Tendinopathy
- Tibialis Posterior Dysfunction
- Retrocalcaneal Bursitis
- Nerve Entrapments
- Fat Pad Atrophy
The first step is to identify and diagnose the underlying cause through an assessment conducted by an experienced podiatrist.
Treatment options include:
- Radial Shockwave Therapy
- Foot and Ankle Taping
- Custom Made Orthotics
- Dry Needling
- Footwear Recommendations
- Foot Mobilisation and Strengthening Exercises
Patients usually require a combination of our treatments. For some patients, a request for diagnostic ultrasound and x-rays may be necessary to assist in the diagnosis and treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Can I Do To Prevent Heel Pain?
You should make sure that you have the appropriate footwear for any physical activity you perform and remember to do warm ups prior to exercise.
Our team at Walk This Way can help you examine the health of your feet and give you a personalised recommendation on how you can minimise the risk of heel pain.
Are there any side effects for Radial Shockwave Therapy?
While Shockwave sounds painful, we find that most of our clients are able to tolerate the levels of small discomfort during the treatment.
Normally patients experience diffused pain or no pain at all immediately after the treatment. There might be a mild pain after a few hours, but it will subside after a day or so and make walking easier the days following.
