plantar fasciitis treatment

Footfriend - Plantar Fasciitis Treatment

Sometimes known as “policeman’s heel”, Plantar Fasciitis is characterised by a pain in the heel.

One of the most common heel pain syndromes is called Plantar Fasciitis.

Over the years here at Footfriend we have successfully helped thousands of people get rid of this painful condition. Through a careful examination we can determine whether you have plantar fasciitis or another heel pain problem. This condition will not disappear overnight but we can tailor a program for you at your first appointment to help alleviate this painful problem.

Diagnosis & symptoms

This painful heel problem is diagnosed through careful history taking and an examination of your feet.

People with plantar fasciitis typically complain that they have pain in their heel when they get out of bed in the morning. This often fades away but can return if you are on your feet a lot during the day.

The pain is also experienced when standing after a period sitting.

Typical causes

As this is a musculoskeletal problem we need to examine you and take a careful history to determine the specific cause. We will also examine your footwear which can be a contributory factor for some sufferers.

How we can help

Through a careful examination we can identify what is causing your problem. From this we can provide a treatment program at your first appointment. We will also advise you on the best footwear for this problem.

We also stock quality gel heel cushions which will not cure your problem but will give you some immediate relief from the pain this problem is causing.

Get in touch to make an appointment at a time that suits you. We look forward to seeing you at our Beverley Clinic; serving Beverley, Hull and surrounding villages.

Patient Stories

I have been a client with Damian for a number of years. I am a Type 2 Diabetic and visit every eight weeks, Damian takes very good care of my feet, and keeps me up to date with information on the care of my feet, including ill fitting shoes. I would recommend him to all of my friends.

K. Johnson, Hull

I have been visiting Footfriend now for over 12 years. During this time, I have found the standard of care and service to be first class. As I get older, I find visiting a professional very superior to trying to care for my feet and toes myself.

John Bullock, Beverley

“Since childhood I have suffered from foot problems and have been to several chiropodists with varying degrees of success. When my last chiropodist retired he recommended Damian Johns in Beverley. My wife and I have now been patients of Damian for over 10 years and we are very pleased with him. His practice provides a wide range of foot care including excellent footwear, foot supports and referrals for further specialized foot treatment. The reception staff are very welcoming and are able to offer appointments to suit patients lifestyle. I would recommend anyone with foot concerns to consult Damian for help and advice.”

“Can I just thank you & Vicky for being so nice today at my Mother's appointment. She was 'over the moon' with the service she received & even went shopping in Beverley & bought some new shoes! Thanks again, we will be back.”

Trudy Sinclair

“Damian and Vicky are fantastic and sorted out my very painful foot. I've used their services for quite some time and they never disappoint. The ladies at Reception are fab too and we always have a laugh. Highly recommended.”

Maria Bertocco

“I just wanted to say thank you for the competent and friendly treatment I received on Thursday last week. My feet haven't felt so comfortable in ages and the squidgy thing for between my toes is really very comfortable and will hopefully keep the corns at bay. It shouldn't be a surprise but it's amazing how much happier I feel with less painful and uncomfortable feet! Thanks once again.”
