Heel Pain Has Many Causes

Heel Pain

One of the most common reasons that people visit their foot doctor is because of terrible heel pain. There are many different causes of heel pain including repetitive stress from exercise and from tightly-fitting shoes like pumps. 

A bad pain in your heel can really ruin your day and adversely affect your whole body. When you are experiencing heel discomfort, it can even cause you to absentmindedly alter the way you walk to favor the part of your foot that doesn’t hurt. This can lead to the development of severe problems with the knees, hips, and back — so always take care of your feet first!

Conditions that cause heel discomfort and pain include the following:
