Most heel pain is caused by plantarfasciopathy. This is the chronic inflammation of the plantarfascia – the tendon which supports the arch in your foot. It joins into the base of your heel bone and then travels the arch of your foot to connect into the base of your toes. When the plantarfascia becomes overloaded – due to poor foot positioning (like flat feet), poor shoes, an increase in load or amount of exercise – the tendon tissue reacts becoming swollen, thickened and painful.
Ultimately you start to notice that it hurts when you first get out of bed each day and that you struggle to walk when you get up from sitting. If you are a regular walker or runner, you’ll notice that your heel pain is sore when you start running, eases off after a while, but then starts to get sore and limits how far you can go.
