The most common type of heel pain is plantarfasciitis (pain under the heel), followed by achilles tendonitis (pain at the back of the heel) and severes disease (growing pain in children). At Blue Mountains Podiatry we specialize in diagnosing, managing and treating heel pain and getting you back on your feet, and FAST.

The onset of heel pain may be gradual or sudden and can be contributed to a number of factors including:
