Heel pain is common. The heel is actually a fairly complex structure, with many bones, muscles and ligaments involved. I would recommend seeing your doctor
to have this evaluated.
The most common cause of heel pain is known as plantar fasciitis. This is normally pain at the bottom of the foot. It is often worse with putting weight on the foot, and certainly can be worse first thing in the morning. Plantar fascitis is caused by inflammation in the fascia (sheet of connective tissue) on the bottom of the foot. It is thought that this is caused by an abnormal foot arch. There are many ways to treat this. The best treatment is a supportive shoe inset (a shoe orthotic). Talk to your doctor as he or she can provide a prescription for a specific one. There are also splints that can be worn at night to make sure the foot arch is in the correct location at night. In terms of pain control, anti - inflammatories such as ibuprofen are often helpful. Talk to your doctor before starting any medicine. For severe cases steroid injections and surgery
can be helpful. Other causes of heel pain include Achilles injury
or bone problems.
See your doctor. Good luck!
