For many years Heel spurs have been misdiagnosed as the cause of the severe pain in the heel. Upon x-ray, practitioners observed a spur-like growth of bone at the point where the plantar fascial ligament inserts to the heel – this can be clearly seen in the x-ray below. It was therefore wrongfully concluded that such an obvious growth must be the cause of the pain.
Unfortunately this misdiagnosis resulted in many years of ineffective treatment (and still available today) with patients unable to find a cure that offered any long-term relief. Spurs are nature’s way of making a connection to torn or inflamed soft tissue. They are created by pain, but not a part of the pain.
The real cause of plantar fasciitis is the pulling and tearing of the micro fibres of the ligament at its insertion point at the heel. The ensuing growth of bone or “heel spur” is merely the body’s attempt to stop pain. For more information read our detailed information on plantar fasciitis. Because of our uniquely effective and permanent cure for Plantar Fasciitis (aka. Heel Spurs) we are Australia’s only specialist Heel Pain Centre.

This appointment incorporates a comprehensive functional load bearing (standing) assessment, measuring joint movements and soft tissue tension. With advanced digital software corrective calcaneal (heel bone) angles in static and motion positions will also be calculated.
From this assessment the source and the treatment options will be determined.
