Home care to relieve heel pain
The following measures can help alleviate heel pain:
-Use crutches to remove weight on the feet.
- Rest as much as possible for at least a week.
-Apply ice to the pain area. Do this at least twice a day for 10 to 15 minutes and more often in the first two days.
-Take acetaminophen or ibuprofen for pain.
-Use footwear with good support and that fits well.
-Use heel pads, felt pad in the heel area or an insole for the shoe.
-Wear night splints.
We may recommend other treatments, depending on the cause of the heel pain.
