Houston podiatrist treats heel spur painHeel pain is a sophisticated injury that requires a specialized understanding of the inflammatory process and the biomechanics that prevents it from resolving on it's own. A podiatrist in Houston is uniquely qualified to provide this care.

After graduating from college a podiatrist undergoes four years in a podiatric medical program and is awarded a DPM degree. The new doctor then completes a hospital-based residency program, now at least three years in duration, where he receives advanced medical and surgical training.

Podiatrists also have a keen understanding of how the foot functions, understands the mechanics, and are able to correct them by using custom foot orthotics or specialized ankle-foot orthotics. In rare cases where surgery is required to resolve heel pain, a podiatrist is well-qualified to provide that care and ensure the heel pain does not return in the future.
