Heel pain is a common problem that can be caused by a number of different things. The most common cause of heel pain is plantar fasciitis, which is a condition that causes the ligament that runs along the bottom of the foot to become inflamed. Other possible causes of heel pain include Achilles tendonitis, bursitis, and nerve problems. We are your best bet when it comes to heel pain treatment.
There are a number of different treatments that can be effective for heel pain, depending on the underlying cause.
For plantar fasciitis, treatment typically involves wearing supportive shoes, stretching the calf muscles, and using over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication.
For Achilles tendonitis, treatment may involve icing the area, taking anti-inflammatory medication, and avoiding activities that put stress on the tendon.
Bursitis can be treated with icing, rest, and taking anti-inflammatory medication. If heel pain is caused by a nerve problem, treatment may involve wearing supportive shoes and using over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication.
A heel spur is a bony growth that can occur on the heel bone. Heel spurs are often associated with plantar fasciitis, but they can also occur without any pain or other symptoms.
Common Heal Pain Victims
Heel pain is most commonly seen in people between the ages of 40 and 60, although it can occur at any age. It is more common in women than men. Heel pain is also more common in people who are overweight or have jobs that require a lot of standing or walking.
