Heel pain is often most prominent with first few steps after getting out of bed in morning, or after extended periods of inactivity, such as long drives in a car or long periods of sitting, with pain again prominent with initial ambulation.
Dr. Kopelman specializes in both premade and custom engineered orthotics. These orthotics help to correct foot problems, improving your posture and relieving pain as a safe alternative treatment strategy instead of surgery. We invest time and thoughtful care into customized design orthotics for children, adults, seniors and athletes.
At The Heel and Foot Pain Center of Tampa Bay, we'll examine your foot structure to determine the most likely cause of pain, then prescribe treatment. Often, heel pain can be treated with simple measures, such as stretching, medication, steroid shots or orthotics. We offer commercial orthotics and custom orthotics made in house to fit your foot and relieve pain.
