What Causes Heel Pain?
â€‹Wearing shoes with poor cushioning can irritate the tissue in your heel (plantar fascia). Being overweight or standing for long periods can also irritate the tissue. Running, walking, tennis, and other sports that put stress on the heels can cause tiny tears in the tissue. If your lower leg muscles are tight, this is more likely to occur. A tight Achilles tendon can also contribute to heel pain.
You may feel pain on the bottom or on the inside edge of your heel. The pain may be sharp when you get out of bed or when you stand up after sitting. You may feel a dull ache after you've been standing for a long time on a hard surface. Running can also cause a dull ache. If a nerve is irritated, you may feel burning or a shooting pain in your heel.
Dr. Richard Adams will be talking about a new treatment for heel pain and plantar fasciitis. If you are suffering with this, come and learn about the new treatments available. The seminar is free but please RSVP.
