You will also see introductions at the end of some sections to any recent developments that have been covered by MNT's news stories. Home care such as rest, ice, proper-fitting footwear and foot supports are often enough to ease heel pain.
Heel pain is not usually caused by a single injury, such as a twist or fall, but rather the result of repetitive stress and pounding of the heel.
A heel pain sufferer commonly feels pain either under the heel (plantar fasciitis) or just behind it (Achilles tendinitis). When the plantar fasciitis is stretched too far its soft tissue fibers become inflamed, usually where it attaches to the heel bone.
Heel bursitis - inflammation of the back of the heel, the bursa (a fibrous sac full of fluid). Tarsal tunnel syndrome - a large nerve in the back of the foot becomes pinched, or entrapped (compressed). Chronic inflammation of the heel pad - caused either by the heel pad becoming too thin, or heavy footsteps. Gout - levels of uric acid in the blood rise until the level becomes excessive (hyperuricemia), causing urate crystals to build up around the joints.
Neuroma (Morton's neuroma) - a swollen nerve in the ball of the foot, commonly between the base of the second and third toes. Osteomyelitis - osteomyelitis means infection of the bone or bone marrow; inflammation of the bone due to infection.


Peripheral neuropathy - neuropathy is a collection of disorders that occurs when nerves of the peripheral nervous system (the part of the nervous system outside of the brain and spinal cord) are damaged. Rheumatoid arthritis - rheumatoid arthritis, sometimes referred to as rheumatoid disease, is a chronic (long lasting), progressive and disabling auto-immune disease condition that causes inflammation and pain in the joints, the tissue around the joints, and other organs in the human body. New research from the US suggests that wearing shoes such as high heels, pumps and sandals was strongly linked in women's later life with heel and ankle pain. On the next page we look at the symptoms of heel pain, diagnosis and when to seek medical advice. The sufferer usually feels pain either under the heel (plantar fasciitis) or just behind it (Achilles tendinitis), where the Achilles tendon connects to the heel bone. Heel pain is typically mild and usually disappears on its own; however, in some cases the pain may persist and become chronic (long-term). It may also be caused by arthritis, infection, an autoimmune problem trauma, a neurological problem, or some other systemic condition (condition that affects the whole body). The plantar fascia is a strong bowstring-like ligament that runs from the calcaneum (heel bone) to the tip of the foot. The heel bone is not yet fully mature and rubs excessively, resulting in the formation of too much bone.
A chronic (long-term) condition associated with the progressive degeneration of the Achilles tendon.
The condition is generally referred to as peripheral neuropathy, and it is most commonly due to damage to nerve axons.


Rheumatoid arthritis usually affects the joints in the hands and feet first, but any joint may become affected. When we are walking or running it absorbs the impact of the foot when it hits the ground, and springs us forward into our next stride. Sometimes the Achilles tendon does not function properly because of multiple, minor microscopic tears of the tendon, which cannot heal and repair itself correctly - the Achilles tendon receives more tension than it can cope with and microscopic tears develop. Among females can be caused by starting to wear high heels before the bone is fully mature. Patients with osteomyelitis typically experience deep pain and muscle spasms in the inflammation area, as well as fever. As this occurs a thick ligament (the plantar fascia) that is attached to the bottom of the heel and fans out into the ball of the foot is stretched excessively.
It is important to realize that it is not the spur that causes the pain and therefore the spur does not need to be removed in most cases.
This is an inflammation of the plantar fascial ligament.A common factor that contributes to this condition is tightness of the calf muscles. Women who wear high heels and people who walk for exercise will often develop this problem because of the tightness that results in the calf muscle as a result of these activities.
