Heel pain is an intense pain that the individual experiences whenever they use one or both of the affected heels. Heel pain is the most common problem that affects the ankle and foot, and that is because of the immense pressure placed on the foot at any given time. More than 50 tons of stress is exerted on the foot in every kilometer you walk, and this stress is amplified when carrying heavy loads and running.
A heel spur is a calcium deposit causing a bony protrusion on the underside of the heel bone. They are frequently associated with plantar fasciitis, a painful inflammation of the fibrous band of connective tissue (plantar fascia) that runs along the bottom of the foot and connects the heel bone to the ball of the foot.
Pain on the bottom of the heel and around the back – Most of the time, only one heel causes heel pain, but in almost a third of the cases, both heels cause pain. The latter can make movement very painful, causing pain whenever they walk. The pain experienced is usually heightened while walking or when you use the foot after a long period of inactivity such as in the morning after sleep.
