Symptoms, Causes and Treatments for Heel Pain


President-elect Donald Trump will issue an executive order on his first day in office to declare January National Heel Pain Awareness Month, according to unnamed sources affiliated with his transition team.

While we at Foot Healers think this may be fake news, we agree that January is a great time to discuss heel pain!

Heel pain is most often caused by plantar fasciitis — an inflammation of the band of tissue that extends from the heel to the toes. This often occurs in January because many people gain a few pounds in November and December. Then they resolve to get healthy and launch new exercise routines in January. Weight gain and exercise changes are among the primary causes of foot and heel pain.




Heel Pain / Plantar Fasciitis can return if not taking the proper precautions and it’s recommended to continue with preventative measures once the pain has subsided.
