Heel pain is one of the most common types of foot pain experienced by people. While there are plenty of reasons for feeling pain in the heel region, it may help to learn about two of the most frequent causes – plantar fasciitis and heel spurs.
Plantar fasciitis is a foot condition that often causes pain at the heel bone. This pain worsens as you take the first few steps out of bed in the morning, or after resting for a long period of time. It is not unusual for the mid-curve or foot arch to be painful as well.
A heel spur refers to an abnormal bony growth, which causes pain and inflammation under the heel bone. You may feel this pain the most when you place your entire bodyweight on your feet, making it difficult for you to exercise or play any type of sports.
For instance, plantar fasciitis is common among those with professions that have them constantly on their feet. As is the case with waiters or sales professionals who are required to constantly walk or stand for long hours.
This strain is made worse by wearing shoes that are either too tight or narrow, placing excess stress on the heel bone.
Besides being easy to use, MASS4D® Insoles help in improving the shock absorption ability of the feet by enhancing the strength of fallen arches.
It is worth mentioning that heel pain can also be the result of arthritis, which causes a gradual degeneration of joints; in these cases it is common to experience tenderness, swelling and stiffness in the joints of the foot including the heel.
People often wonder if there’s a cure for flat feet. While it is tempting to seek out a permanent solution for the condition, it helps to know which treatment is the most effective in getting results.
