Common Conditions That Cause Heel Pain

If you’ve been experiencing pain in your arches, the bed of your foot, while walking,

while standing, or simply after not moving for some time, it’s likely that you have

one of several conditions that can cause extreme discomfort for your heel.

• Plantar Fasciitis – As the most common culprit of heel pain, plantar fasciitis

can cause extreme discomfort due to inflammation of the plantar fascia

that runs from the heel bone to your toes. Through more supportive shoes,

pain relievers, stretches, plenty of rest, and one of several other treatment

options, you can be well on your way toward long-term relief.

• Heel Spurs – Heel spurs are another frequent cause of heel pain and can

develop from poor posture or walking, unsupportive shoes, or specific

physical activities, especially in patients with plantar fasciitis. Heel spurs

do not always cause pain, however when they do, the discomfort can be

extremely limiting. Luckily, custom shoe inserts, or orthotics, pain relievers,

rest, physical therapy, and additional treatment alternatives can provide the

lasting relief you want.

• Posterior Heel Pain – Posterior heel pain is another common cause of heel

pain and can be caused by tendonitis of the Achilles tendon as well as a

handful of other possible conditions. With the proper treatments, including

cutting-edge new alternatives, posterior heel pain doesn’t have to impair

your life.

Treatment Options for Heel Pain

With most inflammatory heel conditions, medications, physical therapy, and surgery

are all options that can offer relief, whether temporarily or permanently, for your

heel pain.
