Heel pain that comes as a result of plantar fasciitis or similar chronic foot condition can lead to strong pain in many individuals. Dr. Domenic Signorelli from the Platinum Health Center provides patients a few different treatment options for this problem.

Dr. Signorelli is a board certified doctor of Podiatric Medicine and he has already helped dozens of patients suffering from plantar fasciitis. The best part is that he explains the different options to his patients. It all depends on the severity of the problem. In most cases, Dr. Domenic Signorelli recommends a conservative treatment which includes physical therapy, at-home stretching and the use of different foot orthotics.

Dr. Signorelli usually advises the use of over the counter anti-inflammatory drugs to control the pain even though there are cases when he recommends steroid injections. This is typical for patients who experience sharp and chronic pain.
