Heel Pain is usually contributed to a condition called plantar fasciitis, or heel spur syndrome when a spur is present. The pain experienced in people with plantar fasciitis is due to the inflammation and irritation of the band of tissue (the plantar fascia) that runs from the toes up to the heel bone. Most often this issue, while painful, can be resolved through conservative therapy rather than surgical intervention.

There are other factors such as tendonitis, nerve irritation, stress fractures, arthritis, or a bone tumor that could cause heel pain. So, it is important to get a thorough diagnosis in order to treat the root issue of the heal pain. Plantar fasciitis is more common in people who are obsess, or those have overly flat feet or high-arched feet.
