Heel Pain

Heel pain is usually caused by rolling over of the foot (excess pronation). As the foot pronates, the arch collapses and the muscles (plantar fascia) and supporting structure are forced to stretch and elongate. This puts traction and strain on the ligaments running from the heel to the toes. In turn, the heel bone responds by developing a bony growth right in the centre of the heel – the heel spur.


Cause: Most commonly the cause is open backed shoes, such as thongs, sling backs of high heels. Patients.
