What could be causing the heel pain you’re experiencing? In most cases, it doesn’t result from a single, traumatic accident. Instead, it’s usually caused by repetitive stress.
Typically, this stress results from:
Wearing footwear with poor support (flip-flops) that results in all the pressure on your foot going to the ball of your foot
Exercise activity that’s too advanced or intense for your feet at this time
Foot mechanics like over-pronation (flat feet)
The general population often struggles with heel pain, and so do distance runners. Children who insist running around barefoot all day can also suffer from heel pain.
In most cases, patients allow the pain to persist for weeks, months, or even years before they finally seek help. Unfortunately, that only leads to more severe heel pain, and possibly the need for surgery.
The rule is this: if you have heel pain that lasts any longer than just a few days, get your heel checked out immediately. Simple physical therapy or a change in footwear can lead to long-term relief and avoiding surgery.
