The most common form of heel pain is Plantar Fasciitis which is reported to have an incidence of 10-15% in the population. Treatments include: Cutting out offending nail spike, partial nail avulsion (minor nail surgery), antibiotics, and addressing the causative factors.
A callous is a thickened area of skin on the foot which is primarily caused from repeated pressure from shoe or ground reaction forces.
A plantar wart is a benign tumour of the outer layer of skin which is caused when the skin is infected with a virus. The appearance of flat feet is normal and common in infants, partly due to "fat" which masks the developing arch and partly because the arch has not yet fully developed. Is is most commonly seen in the middle aged, overweight, people who stand on their feet for a living, and people with a history of ankle sprains.
One type of toe walking is also called "habitual" or "idiopathic" toe walking, where the cause is unknown.


Excessive in-toeing may be caused by a variety of underlying difficulties, such as hip joint problems.
The pain is localised to the posterior and plantar side of the heel over the calcaneal apophysis.
It is most commonly seen in middle aged, overweight people who report that their arch has collapsed and the inside of the ankle is sore. The plantar fascia is a ligament which has similar properties to a tendon and originates from the heel bone (Calcaneus) and inserts into the balls of the feet (metatarsal heads). When there is infection present there is usually a break in the skin which causes a bacterial infection. They may exhibited a "cauliflower" appearance and be painful on medial and lateral compression of the wart lesion.
Other causes include a congenital short Achilles tendon, muscle spasticity (especially as associated with cerebral palsy) and paralytic muscle disease such as Duchenne muscular dystrophy.


Sometimes, the pain may be so severe that it may cause limping and interfere with physical performance in sports. Flat feet does not always exhibit pain, however if you are an active individual it might cause arch pain, ankle pain, skin pain, and knee pain. Generally Ingrowing toenails are caused from Improper nail cutting, trauma from footwear, or a badly shaped nail. Too much weight bearing on the heel can also cause it, as can excessive traction since the bones and tendons are still developing.
It occurs more commonly in children who over-pronate, and involves both heels in more than half of patients.
