Why does my heel pain jump from foot to foot?

IMPORTANT COVID-19 INFORMATION

At this time, our office continues to be open to new and existing patients. We use hospital-grade sanitizers and are taking measures to ensure patients maintain social distancing by not having anyone wait in our reception room with others. We are continuing operation in an effort to keep patients out of the urgent care clinics and hospital emergency departments, which increases the chances of being exposed to the virus. We have x-ray and ultrasound in the office to prevent you from having to go elsewhere.

For those patients who cannot or wish not to visit the office, we are offering private video telemedicine visits. Simply call the office at 713-785-7881 and ask for an e-visit and we will be happy to get you set up for an immediate appointment. You can also request an appointment through our website.

Houston podiatrist treats heel spur painWhen one foot is injured with heel pain, your discomfort can be intense. Your body will naturally try to offload the painful heel and shift more weight to your foot that is healthy. As the pressure is shifted, inflammation can begin on your other foot because it is now being overused. You may even see a reduction of pain in the originally painful heel!

 

If left untreated, the pain will continue to jump from foot to foot until, ultimately, both feet will be simultaneously painful, which can be debilitating. For that reason, do not let your heel pain go untreated. In most cases, plantar fasciitis does not resolve in its own. Your podiatrist in Houston is able to assess your pain and offer treatment options to resolve it before it becomes a greater problem.

 

If you are suffering with heel pain, whether it has been for one week, one month or one year, contact Houston podiatrist Dr. Andrew Schneider to learn how to relieve your pain as quickly as possible. It's time to stop suffering with heel pain!
