Fixing a policeman's heel pain - our success story

Have you ever thought about the strain it puts on your legs and feet to stand still for extended periods of time?

One of our recent success stories was treating calf and heel pain in a policeman who works at Parliament House.

His job means having to stand still for long periods of time. And he had developed calf and heel pain which was impacting his ability to do the job.

We investigated the reason for his heel pain.

Essentially having to stay stable for so long puts a big strain on one of the muscles in your calves. This muscle works to support you while you’re standing still.

Standing guard duty for long periods had built up a strain which referred to his heels. 

Our treatment included dry needling, stretching his muscles and giving him advice on the right stretching exercises to do.

He came to us twice and his heel pain was fixed.

This kind of heel pain is common in people who have to stand still at work, such as hairdressers, and security officers.

If you’re suffering from heel pain, we’re here to help. We’d love to offer you the opportunity to make an appointment.
