Heel pain treatment in Singapore that will get you walking comfortably again

If you’re looking for heel pain treatment, chiropractic provides an effective and natural remedy with lasting benefits.

Heel problems are a common issue, and easing the pain starts with discovering the cause.

If you have pain underneath your heel, the cause is most likely plantar fasciitis, inflammation of the plantar fascia ligament. Pain in the back of the heel is usually down to Achilles tendonitis, infection of the Achilles tendon.

Heel pain isn’t typically caused by a one-off injury like a fall, but from repetitive stress on the heel. If heel pain becomes severe and isn’t treated, it can result in a severely disabling condition.

Natural remedies for heel pain include:

  • Putting an ice pack under the heel for up to 20 minutes.
  • Wearing shoes with heels at least 2 cm high.
  • Stretching exercises – using a towel looped around the foot to pull your toes towards the body.
  • Chiropractic foot pain treatment, which can relieve heel pain while improving flexibility and strength of the foot.
Pain beneath the heel

Plantar fasciitis causing pain underneath the heel often occurs if the arches of the foot are abnormally high or low. This can overstretch the plantar fascia, leading to inflammation of the soft-tissue fibres.

Symptoms of planta fasciitis that cause heel pain include:

  • Difficulty walking right after waking.
  • Difficulty raising your toes off the floor.
  • Tenderness or swelling.

Our highly-skilled chiropractor uses precise chiropractic adjustments to ease stress in the plantar fascia and promote healing.

Pain in the back of the heel

Achilles tendonitis – also known as tendinopathy or tendinosis – is a chronic condition resulting in progressive degeneration of the tendon. Problems can develop through multiple, tiny rips in the soft tissue when the tendon gets more tension than it can handle and gradually weakens and thickens.

Indications of Achilles tendonitis include:

  • Stiffness in the tendon.
  • Severe pain after exercising.
  • The tendon becomes thicker.

Our chiropractic practice treats Achilles tendonitis by improving movement in the foot and achieving a more balanced distribution of body weight.


Pain in the back of the heel can also be caused by bursitis, inflammation of the bursa fluid sac at the back of the heel bone. Bursitis can be triggered by too much running or walking.

Symptoms of heel bursitis include:

  • Swelling
  • Tenderness
  • Fever or chills if the infection spreads.

Our chiropractic clinic can use massage therapy for bursitis to lessen inflammation by breaking down scar tissue. Once the condition is stabilised, chiropractic joint manipulation is effective in loosening the soft tissue to restore flexibility and ease friction on the bursa.

Are you suffering from a pain?
Chiropractic may be just what you need to alleviate it.

Chiropractic massage and manipulation provide heel pain relief

Active release therapy is one chiropractic technique that’s particularly beneficial for heel pain relief in cases of both Achilles tendonitis and plantar fasciitis. Active release massage not only helps to repair the damage but can also restore full function in the foot and leg muscles and the ankle joint, to reduce stress on the heel.

Another chiropractic technique for plantar fasciitis affecting the heel is the direct thrust method, which entails pressure from the hand or a small hand-held instrument. Misalignment of any of the seven bones in the ankle can put stress on the plantar fascia.

Our experienced chiropractor uses the direct thrust technique to relieve that pressure by chiropractic adjustments to move these bones back into their proper position.
