The primary cause of heel pain is plantar fasciitis, an inflammation of a band of tissue (the plantar fascia) within the arch of the foot that inserts into the heel bone.
Symptoms can include pain walking or running and worse at the end of the day, pain and stiffness getting out of bed in the morning, and may recur through the day after resting.
We use weight bearing x-rays to help diagnose misalignment.
