About 70%-80% of Dr. Vargas’s patients complain about heel pain on the bottom of the foot or in the Achilles tendon. For pain in the bottom of the heel, an X-ray will be administered for a thorough assessment. Once a clear understanding has been established, Dr. Vargas will prescribe an anti-inflammatory, physical therapy or night splint to relax the band of tissue that spans the bottom of the foot.
After the foot has been stretched and the plantar fascia has been relaxed, Dr. Vargas will prescribe a custom orthotic to keep the foot properly aligned. By maintaining a healthy alignment, the foot will experience proper biomechanics. This method provides a fix to the cause of heel pain so that it does not reoccur.
