Are You Experiencing Daily Heel Pain?

Reach out to our podiatrists in Bozeman & Livingston, MT for relief

Heel pain is often caused by plantar fasciitis-a condition that is sometimes referred to as heel spur syndrome. Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the band of tissue that extends from your heel to your toe. Symptoms may include pain on the bottom of your heel that is worse when you first get up in the morning or stand after sitting for a long period of time. You may be prone to plantar fasciitis if:

  • You have overly flat feet or high-arched feet.
  • You wear non-supportive footwear on hard, flat surfaces.
  • Your job requires long hours on your feet.

If you're suffering from heel pain, schedule an appointment at Bozeman Foot and Ankle Clinic. An experienced podiatrist will observe your foot and take diagnostic images, including X-rays or bone scans.
