Heel Pain Relief

The heel is much more complex than it appears. Most heel pain is the result of a condition called plantar fasciitis. You may also hear this condition referred to as “heel spur syndrome.” This alternative name is only accurate when there are actual spurs contributing to the heel pain.

There are other foot/ankle conditions that may cause heel pain. Stress fractures will result in pain presenting in and around the heel. Tendonitis, which is the result of an injured tendon becoming swollen and painful, may also present in the heel. Other conditions that can cause heel pain include arthritis, nerve irritation and cysts.
