What is Heel Pain?

One of the most common problems for patients with foot and ankle disorders is heel pain. The pain usually originates from a spot under the foot known as plantar surface or from the back of the heel. It is a painful disorder but the conditions don’t render the patient disabled or cause them severe pain. They hurt enough to limit daily activities like walking, standing or running. These treatments take a lot of time and effort to fix so it’s best to catch them early on.
