Heel pain is the most common foot problem in America and is often caused by Plantar Fasciitis. There are many treatments recommended for plantar fasciitis, but not all of them work every time.At Alamitos-Seal Beach Podiatry, we offer standard proven treatments for heel pain. When these treatments fail, we are one of the unique practices in the country which offer three new innovative treatments for chronic heel pain which can prevent surgery and return our patients to an active lifestyle. As a result, our patients will have a full spectrum of options for treating heel pain which are at the cutting edge of new technology and research.
I was plagued with plantar fasciitis for years, and as a runner, it severely impacted my ability to train and participate in races. I tried numerous things including stretching and several types of night splints with limited success. I was ready to consider a surgical procedure when Dr. Richie told me about RF which had very minimal downtime and could be performed in the office. The procedure was performed on a Tuesday and I did a 10K run the following Saturday with only slight soreness. Since then, I’ve had absolutely no plantar fasciitis discomfort or symptoms. From my perspective, it was a “miracle cure”.
