Heel Pain

Heel pain is often the result of overuse of the foot. It is rarely caused by a single injury such as a fall or twist. Heel pain may include swelling or tenderness. It may be caused by: Running, especially on hard surfaces like concrete, or too often
Tightness in your calf muscles or the Achilles tendon
Shoes with poor support or shock absorption
Sudden inward or outward turning of your heel
Landing hard or awkwardly on the heel
