What are the three stages of heel pain that are needed to get better?


In treating heel pain, I find that there are three stages in getting better, and I explain this more in my heel treatment protocol. Usually it’s the initial stage, which is used to reduce the inflammation and loosen up the back of the calf and also stabilize the heel. If that doesn't work, then we go on to the next stage for treatment, and that involves usually something called a Dynasplint or a CAM boot, that’s to help stretch out the area more or to protect the area, and then the third aspect would go on to some type of a surgical procedure. For the most part we are able to avoid that as much as possible with our current treatment. So those are the three stages for treating heel pain.
