If you are frustrated by pain in your heel, especially when you first step out of bed in the morning, then this information is important to you. Most heel pain that has lasted for more than a month typically gets worse. The longer the pain lasts, the greater the chance you’ll develop an even worse condition that involves scar tissue formation. You don’t have to let this happen to you. Imagine stepping out of bed pain-free. Call us today to get fast relief!
One of the main causes of heel pain is plantar fasciitis, which is a rip or tear in the plantar fascia ligament that causes inflammation and results in heel pain. Plantar fasciitis can be attributed to wearing ill-fitting or non-supportive shoes, or excessive strain from running.
Achilles tendonitis is another major contributor to heel pain and results from a tear in the muscle or a stress fracture due to overuse. If left untreated, this condition can lead to more serious heel problems, and cause further pain.
A third main cause of heel pain is a heel spur, which occurs when the plantar fascia tissues undergo excessive stress, and the ligament separates from the heel bone entirely. This results in a pointed fragment of bone, or “heel spur,” on the ball of the foot.
