What Kind of Heel Pain Do You Have? (A Not-So-Serious Quiz)
Heel pain is one of the most common conditions that comes through our door, and there are tons more people who could be getting help for their heel pain, but don’t. There are multiples ways heel pain can creep into your life and become an increasingly miserable part of it—sort of like a cable bill. Many people think their heel pain is untreatable, but it might also be that they haven’t fully identified the root of the problem. If you don’t know your enemy, how do you expect to put the best effort forward to take care of them? That’s where Kansas Foot Center comes in! We not only have the experience and tools to correctly diagnose the cause of your heel pain, but we can also advise you on the best treatments and lifestyle changes to make it much less of a problem—or no longer a problem at all! Since we enjoy those online quizzes that tell you what superhero, band, or member of the produce aisle you are, we thought we’d create one of our own to demonstrate the different culprits of heel pain out there. Please not that this quiz should in no way be taken as a legitimate diagnostic tool, and is meant to be taken somewhat tongue in cheek. (We’re sure you’ll realize that soon enough.) Are you ready?
