Q Why isn't my heel pain going away?
While there is no definitive answer for everyone, what we typically find at our practice is that there has not been a comprehensive care plan that includes addressing the inflammation AND the biomechanics at the same time. Without adequately addressing both, your heel pain will typically not resolve. Think of it as fixing a broken pipe without cleaning up the water...or the reverse! If you only address one you will never fully solve the problem. So how long should it take to fix both, well that depends on several factors. Mainly how long you have had the heel pain and how intense it is. The more longstanding and more intense the heel pain, the longer it typically takes to go away.
