Plantar Fasiciitis (Plantar Heel Pain)
Plantar fasciitis (Plantar Heel Pain) is the most common cause of heel pain we see here at myPod Podiatry. It affects individuals from all aspects of life. It is typically experienced by people with both high and low arched feet, runners, dancers and middle aged individuals in occupations that demand long hours on their feet.
Ingrown nails occur when the edge of a nail either applies too much pressure or pierces the neighbouring skin. It is a painful condition and one of the most common issues we address as Podiatrists on a daily basis.
Nail surgery is a common procedure performed by Podiatrists to effectively treat an ingrown toenail. Surgery is indicated when an ingrown toenail repeatedly gets infected, is continually painful, affects the patient’s ability to wear shoes, or the ingrown nail begins to inhibit work, sport, or other activities.
Achilles tendinopathy is a common cause of pain and stiffness at the back of your heel. It is an overuse injury of the achilles tendon (the tendon that attaches your calf muscle to your heel bone) and is commonly seen in sports that involve repetitive running, jumping and dodging actions such as football, netball and basketball.
