What Causes Heel Pain?

Heel pain is a foot problem that occurs on the bottom of the heel or even in the arch of the foot. The pain can gradually increase over time. The most common causes of heel pain is plantar fasciitis, inflammation of the plantar fascia ligament that connects your heel to the tip of your foot. Plantar fasciitis refers to the plantar fascia. The plantar fascia is a strong bowstring-like ligament that runs from the calcaneum (heel bone) to the tip of the foot. Plantar fasciitis is the inflammation of this tissue. It’s caused by excessive pressure or stress on the foot to include running or wearing improper inserts. The sharp pain associated with plantar fasciitis is strong in the morning, and after standing for long periods of time.

The heel pain can also be caused by Achilles tendonitis, bursitis, tarsal tunnel syndrome, or the collapse of the ankle onto the heel because your foot is out of alignment. Achilles tendonitis is heel pain originating in the back of the heel where the Achilles tendon is located. The Achilles tendon is responsible for connecting the back of your leg to your heel. A sudden increase in strenuous activity such as sports can cause this type of injury.

What exactly are misaligned feet?

Misaligned feet are the result of the ankle bone sliding off the heel bone causing the small, naturally occurring space in between (called the sinus tarsi) to collapse. This results in abnormal strain and pressure acting not only on your feet, but on your ankles, knees, hips and back, which leads to a variety of seemingly unrelated symptoms including heel pain (plantar fasciitis), plantar neuropathy, bunions, hammertoe, growing pains, back pain, knee pain, hip pain, shin splints and weight gain. It is estimated that nearly 45% of people have misaligned feet. They affect people of all ages.
