Heel pain is a common condition in which weight bearing on the heel causes extreme discomfort and is believed to account for more visits to a doctor than any other foot ailment. The pain usually occurs underneath your heel or just behind it, where the Achilles tendon attaches to the heel bone. Because there are several potential causes for heel pain, it is important to consult with a foot and ankle specialist for a proper diagnosis.
Common causes of heel pain include:
- Achilles tendonitis
- Achilles tendon rupture
- Bone Spurs
- Nerve Entrapments
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Stress Fractures
