What Is Heel Pain (Plantar Fasciitis)?
Heel pain is a common condition that affects our feet. Many people will suffer for a long time, because they think the pain will go away. Unfortunately, this pain often gets worse and sometimes becomes disabling. Simple activities such as taking a few steps after getting out of bed can be quite painful. Heel pain can be located on the bottom or back of the heel.
It is important to have heel pain properly diagnosed. Our foot and ankle surgeons are able to distinguish between all the possibilities and determine the underlying source of your heel pain. If you ignore your heel pain, the pain can magnify and potentially develop into a chronic condition.
