Prepare for Your Visit to Heal My Heel

Heel treatment in Brisbane begins by making an appointment with Heal My Heel. During our initial consultation we will discuss treatment options with you. Here are a few things you can do to prepare for your appointment with us:

  • Make a list of symptoms and any questions you might have: What are your symptoms? Where exactly is your pain occurring? Does it affect both feet or just one? How would you rate your pain out of 10? You will be asked these questions, so jotting down your answers beforehand will make it easier for you. Also, make a list of any questions you have.
  • Take down some notes about the history of your heel/foot pain: Beyond symptoms, you should try to compile a basic history of your heel/foot pain and any attempted treatments. Details including how long you have been experiencing heel/foot pain, whether youíve had any scans, such as X-rays, ultrasounds or MRIís taken, whether you use orthotics in your footwear will help our podiatrist formulate a big-picture understanding of your particular heel disorder.
  • Call for a complimentary phone consultation: If you would like to discuss your case and our approach/treatment options before making an appointment for your foot and heel pain in Brisbane, Heal My Heel offers a free 20-minute phone consultation with our podiatrist. This call can also be helpful if you have any specific questions about how to prepare for your first visit.

Incidence of Foot Pain in Brisbane is Higher than Average

This is due to a warmer than average climate, meaning there is a tendency for people to go barefoot, or wear thongs more often than others. Most foot-types are not biomechanically equipped for this lack of support, leading to a slightly higher incidence of foot and heel pain in the Brisbane area. An appointment with our podiatrist to discuss your foot and heel pain can help you avoid some frequently made mistakes with regards to heel pain, such as the following:

  • Icing too often: It may feel good to ice your foot or heel for long periods but doing it for too long, too often, over too long a period can slow the healing process. Indeed, with Plantar Fasciitis, which is one of the most common causes of foot/heel pain, you need to be aware when you should and shouldnít ice it.
  • Orthotics: Some Orthotics, even custom-made ones will not do much at all to alleviate the pain and facilitate the healing process in your heel. Our orthotics are purpose made to optimally reduce the stress on certain structures, such as the Plantar Fascia. Relying on orthotics without other treatment strategiesósuch as exercises and rehabilitation to increase flexibility in the calvesócan set you up for a recurring problem. If you have heel pain in Brisbane (or surrounding area), Heal My Heel can advise you on how to get the best out of your orthotics, by combining their use with other treatment strategies.

Of course, the biggest mistake people make is not getting treatment at all. Donít assume that heel or foot pain will go away on its own. It often won't, and once it sets in, it will typically worsen over time. An appointment with Heal My Heel now could mean a faster and more permanent recovery going forward.
