Calcaneal Nerve Causing Heel Pain

When there is damage to the plantar fascia band that inserts into the heel bone, the calcaneal nerve can become pressurised causing the pain to increase. If the plantar fascia continues to pull on the heel bone for more than 1 to 2 years, a heel spur or spike will begin to grow. This heel spur can press on the calcaneal nerve if the enlargement is great. This is a very rare case but it is a possibility to be checked with a 3-D CT scan or contrast MRI.

    I live in Kuwait and I have had many different treatments for my heel pain. I can feel a lump on my heel when I press with my thumb. I really think I have this. I will ask my doctor for this 3D image and also can I come there and meet with your Podiatrist? Thank you Huda

      Dear Huda, First check with your Orthopedic in Kuwait as there are other tests do do first. If you require specialist foot treatment then come to Dubai and we can finish everything for you in one day.
      Best regards, DPC
