Advanced Heel Pain Treatment Process
The Seattle Heel Pain Center uses the latest technology and treatments for heel pain. Our unique protocol has a significant success rate patients rave about.
Our plantar fasciitis treatment success rate is approaching 95%. We are confident our plantar fasciitis treatment will get you back on your feet.
We have developed a series of protocols that are highly effective at treating the causes of heel pain. We are often able to help patients that have already been to numerous clinics and have not responded to other treatments. Heel pain is one of the most common and painful conditions that we treat. We provide both surgical and nonsurgical heel pain treatment options.
Surgery is considered a last resort treatment option, however if surgery becomes necessary we are fully equipped with our own on-site ambulatory surgery center.
Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain. Classically, the pain is in the bottom of the heel, it is often present first thing morning or when one gets up from sitting. But, this is not always the case. Plantar fasciitis is most commonly seen in adults, but can be also seen in teenagers. Heel spurs are also a common cause of heel pain. Regardless of the severity, we have treatment options.
After Dr. Young or Dr. Nelson can evaluate your condition and severity of pain a treatment plan is developed. The doctors will tailor a specific treatment plan that is specific to your needs. Surgery is typically avoidable and is only used if necessary. The doctors have had great success with their heel pain treatments such as Dry Needling, APC+ injections, Cortisone injections and more. Some patients might be leery of an injection in their foot, but our office has a solution to this fear. We use a Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) unit. The TENS unit works by sending stimulating pulses across the surface of the foot and along the nerve strands. These stimulating pulses contribute to preventing pain signals from reaching the brain so a patient doesn't even feel the injection as it's happening. The doctors of Seattle Heel Pain are not only providing relief to heel pain, but they are providing relief pain free.
