Are You Suffering from Heel Pain?

How your integrative podiatrist in New Orleans and Metairie, LA, can help with heel pain.

Is heel pain slowing you down and disrupting your quality of life? Fortunately, if you suffer heel pain, our podiatrist can provide you with several viable conservative treatment options.

Dr. Edward Lang, DPM, chief podiatric surgeon and functional podiatrist at New Orleans Podiatry Associates provides comprehensive foot and ankle services, including effective, conservative heel pain therapies. He has two offices in New Orleans, and Metairie, LA, for your convenience.

Dr. Lang is a student at the Stanford Center for Health Education where he is currently studying nutrition science. Dr. Lang incorporates an ancestral diet and lifestyle approach in his practice which is aimed to bring optimal foot health through overall, optimal health.

If you are experiencing heel pain, it’s time to see your podiatrist. The sooner you seek treatment, the better your odds of achieving a positive outcome. Dr. Edward Lang’s heel pain treatments include:

  • Evaluation of patient’s shod-wear to rule out shoes as origin of pain

  • Evaluation of patient’s diet to pinpoint causes of inflammation ( one of the first places inflammation often appears is in the feet and lower extremities)

  • Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT)

  • High power cold laser/low light laser therapy

  • Prescription-strength anti-inflammatory medication to decrease swelling and pain 

  • Foot and ankle exercises to restore function to plantar fascia

  • Image-guided corticoid therapy 

  • Custom-crafted orthotics

  • Surgery; a last resort option for chronic, non-responsive plantar fasciitis
