Heel related ailments require immediate and very specific treatment

Most Clinic patients have already tried: Anti-inflammatories, Rest, Cortisone, Stretches, Massage, Arch Supports, Shock Wave therapy amongst many other treatments. To successfully treat heel pain it is essential to treat the source as well as symptoms.

Heel Clinic patient data over many years has shown the only long term solution to cure Plantar fasciitis, Severs and Achilles tendonitis is to treat the source (root cause). 

There is a mistaken belief that walking, running, working, being overweight, old age etc are causes of heel related pain. Clinic data shows these are more "contributing factors" then cause.

The Heel Clinic has specialised in treating foot, ankle and heel pain ailments such as Plantar fasciitis, Severs and Achilles tendonitis for the past 15 years. Some years ago the Heel Clinic made significant breakthrough in our diagnosis and identification of the underlying cause of constant heel pain. In many cases it is a weight bearing structural problem with the foots inability to support body weight.

Clinic Patient Histories prior to Heel Clinic visit 2016

98% have visited a doctor (79% given cortisone), 78% Physiotherapist, 71% General Podiatry (65% prescribed arch supports), 18% Chiropractors, 5% Orthopaedic Surgeons, 25% self-treated. Many patients have visited multiple practices seeking relief just to have the pain repeat again.

Plantar fasciitis

There is much misleading and conflicting advice around Plantar fasciitis. In most cases it is a micro-fibre tear in the band of supportive tissue attaching the forefoot (toes) to the Calcaneous (heel bone). Therefore if you stand, walk or run you will further aggravate a plantar fascial tear. Treating pain only does not always address cause. Using advanced bio-engineering the Heel Clinic treats source/cause using the exclusive ICT method.

Heel Clinic Treatment

The Clinic’s prime objective is to treat the source of heel pain providing not just short-term relief, and prevent reoccurrence. This is achieved by applying the Clinics exclusive ICT method of treatment. Together with specific individual programme provided by the Clinic.

Clinic data has shown us conclusively long term heel ailments are mostly associated with calcaneous (heel bone) position through the walking gait. This creates a “chain reaction” of forces and loads causing overuse pain. Resulting in Plantar fasciitis, Severs and Achilles pain being predominantly an angulated heel position issue, not ligament, tendon or arch problems.
