Heel Pain Assessment Clinic in Jarrold Sports

Saturday 16 February

Ian Sadler and Nikki Walker from BxClinic will be holding heel pain assessment clinics within Jarrold Intersport store between 9.30am and 5.30pm. 

In your 10 minute appointment, they will discuss your pain and where it is frustrating your lifestyle, whether that be running, jumping or simply walking the dog. Once the type of heel pain you are suffering is identified you will be given advice on what to do about it. You may need a further appointment booked in Ian’s specialist medical clinic if you need more than 10 minutes and further tests and assessments to get to the bottom of your problem.

We are running this as part of a national campaign Ian is heading up to raise the awareness of the often persistent condition know as plantar fasciitis. Over the last few weeks of February, Ian and his colleagues are holding many different events to highlight the many causes and potential treatments for plantar fasciitis.

To book your session, please register here or if you can't commit to a time, we will also be holding drop in sessions during the day from 11.30am - 12.30pm and 1pm - 3pm.

 About Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar Fasciitis is one of the most commonly diagnosed muscular skeletal conditions in the UK with thousands suffering from pain in the heel every day, sometimes for years! With up to 40 separate conditions being ‘lumped together’ as plantar fasciitis it is not surprising that it is so commonly misdiagnosed. To find a successful treatment for your heel pain you need to understand if it is just an ‘injury’ or a more chronic condition as well as what is wrong with YOUR heel. Anatomically you have Fat Pad, Bursa, Tendon, Muscle and Fascia all connecting into your heel bone, this is not to mention the bone itself, all of which can be injured and each needing a different type of treatment. There is no ‘one size fits all’ solution.
