It's estimated that 14 million Americans suffer from heel pain for a variety of reasons. That's according to Dr. Ken Stephenson who joined us on Healthwise at 5. Dr. Stephenson says exercises can help reduce heel pain and of course wearing more comfortable shoes is good medicine, along with special inserts and Orthotics that can make a hug difference in how long you last on your feet everyday.
Dr. Stephenson said that he and Dr. Paul Scioli are holding a heel seminar next Thursday at Northstar Surgical Center to answer questions about heel pain and offer some ideas in treatment options.
That's May 23rd at 6:30 at Northstar Surgical Center on the Loop at North Quaker.
