Kathy Bates, famous actress known for her roles in Titanic and Misery, screams out in pain at the Golden Globes. An hour after the awards got under way at the Beverly Hilton, an onlooker noticed Bates in excruciating pain to the point where she almost collapsed. Reports said someone stepped on her foot but could it have been just someone stepping on her foot? Kathy Bates foot injury was so bad, she was limping back to her table.
At Family Foot and Ankle Specialists, we want to make sure you don’t get off on the wrong foot! The way you walk is so important to your everyday life. One of the most common problems patients have is heel pain. Heel pain is likely to be traced back to inflammation on the bottom of the foot; almost making it feel like your heel is bruised.
There are many ways we can help treat this condition. Conservative treatments such as heel pain stretches, orthotics, physical therapy, proper shoes or painless laser therapy may be all that is needed to treat your heel pain. Our certified pedorthist can help you make the shoe change that is needed. She can properly measure your foot and ensure your foot will be supported. With a change of well supported walking or athletic shoes you can feel pain free!
