Don’t let sore heels get you down!

THINK GLOBALLY, ACT LOCALLY.

Dr Tim Halpine of Active Feet Podiatry, says “ Now is the time give your feet an annual WOF. “ At this time of year, children are lacing up their winter sport shoes and spending much more time being active. Many of these children will be seen to be limping and will complain of pain in their shins, arches or heels.

These pains should not be ignored and a timely visit to Dr. Tim can give these young athletes the relief that they deserve. The most common cause for the heel pain described is Sever’s disease, a strain of the growth plate of the heel bone. Treatment may involve stretching exercises, short term rest from running and jumping ac-

tivities, as well as support from orthotic devices in the shoes. We also treat heel pain in adults, the most common cause being plantar fasciitis. Our office is at level 2, 85 the Terrace Wellington and Ngaio Medical Centre.  Ring Dr. Halpine for an appointment on (04) 473-8696
