Welcome to the Heel Clinic
Please Note: If you found the Heel Clinic by an internet search you will have seen many websites offering treatment for heel pain. Many of these domain names are similar to the Heel Clinic causing confusion and dissatisfaction. The Heel Clinic and associated Running Clinic have been practicing since 1987 and have no connection or links to any other Practice or website.
