Heel Pain

Heel pain as a result of overuse or over-training is a common complaint amongst athletes from all ages and backgrounds. It often correlates with a rapid growth spurt in the younger athlete or a change in training load in the older athlete.

Common overuse Heel injuries treated by Elite Physiotherapists include:

  • Achilles Tendinopathy
  • Sever’s Disease
  • Achilles Bursitis
  • Tendonitis or Tenosynovitis

Overuse Injuries will almost always have a multitude of contributing factors. It is often a number of these factors that collectively cause a gradual onset of pain to the point where it becomes too sore for the athlete to train or compete.

It is vital that all aspects are accurately identified and addressed in order to successfully settle your pain, fast-track your recovery, and avoid the risk of further injury or prolonged time off sport.

Common contributing factors include:

  • Training intensity, volume, frequency & duration
  • Footwear type & condition/age
  • Incorrect Running or Skills Technique
  • Poor Flexibility
  • Ankle over-pronation
  • Weak calf muscles
  • Ground surface conditions
  • Surface gradients i.e. hills
