Why are my heels hot and burning?


A: Do you know that heel pain is the most common complaint we see in our office?

You could have plantar fascitiis, but did you also know that your pain could be caused by a bone spur, a broken bone or a torn ligament? Heel pain could also be caused by a recent gain in weight, tight calf muscles, sudden change in exercise regiment or improper shoes.

Most people think if they ignore the heel pain that it will go away or at least the pain will get better. I am here to tell you that the pain will not go away and most likely it will get worse! A lot of times we can not remember hurting ourselves and we cant even remember when the pain started, the important thing to know is that if you have heel pain you can get rid of it, no one should have to walk around day to day with pain in their feet.

A few things to think about if you are suffering from heel pain..
- are your shoes old?
- Do your feet feel tired at the end of the day?
- Is the pain worse in the morning when you get out of bed?
- Are you stretching before and after you exercise?
- Do you have to stand for long periods of time when you work?
If the answers to any of these are yes then you should have a docotor look at your feet. Most times conservative treatments can get rid of your pain and make your feet feel new again.

Welcome to the Business Team at Foot and Ankle Associates of North Texas. Our appointment schedulers and billing department work in tandem to assist you and your family during your FAANT experience.
Our scheduling team will complete a short appointment questionnaire that will allow us the opportunity to contact your plan prior to your visit. We will find out what type of Podiatry benefits you should expect, including your coverage limits, which we will then review with you before you are seen.
If you are a new patient, we ask that you complete our online patient forms. We also update paperwork for established patients at least once a year or upon any changes. Having the most accurate information on you and your family will help us better treat your medical conditions, and it will also allow us to process your insurance claims more efficiently.
