Having any kind of foot pain can be difficult to deal with, and it certainly should not go overlooked. Experiencing any kind of discomfort will certainly be challenging to deal with on a regular basis so you will want to see a podiatrist as soon as you can.

Horn and Dr. Jean-Jacques Kassis may be able to provide you with the exact sort of care you need.
Many of us are on our feet relatively often, if not all the time. For those who work on their feet, it is important that you do what you can to make sure that they are properly taken care of. Wear and tear can do a lot more damage than you may think, and it may even result in chronic heel pain that may flare up in the morning and after extended periods of being on your feet. This sort of heel pain is also known as plantar fasciitis, which is an inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes. The symptoms associated with this condition are a bit more specific than just simple, general heel pain. You will usually feel a stabbing pain across the bottom of your foot when you first begin walking during the day. This initial pain may ease and go away the more you walk, but if you are on your feet for extended periods of time then you may experience this pain again. If this happens to you, then you need to consult our Miami heel pain doctors. Some medications can help ease the pain, but often treatment such as physical therapy, night splints and orthotics are prescribed in order to help correct the issue.
If you have heel pain, do not let it bother you any longer. Our Miami heel pain doctor is here to help. Call us here at the office of Drs. Horn and Kassis to schedule an appointment today to get rid of your heel pain once and for all.
