EXERCISE FOOTWEAR IS A COMMON CAUSE OF HEEL PAIN

It’s one of the most common reasons patients visit a podiatrist. “Heel pain, there are a lot of things that can cause it. Depending on if you’re a runner who is active and running on pavement, or if you’re older and your foot has flattened out, there are a whole host of things that can cause it,” explained Dr. Sean Dunleavy, a podiatric surgeon on the medical staff of Lee Health.

One of the most common causes is exercise footwear. “They will relate having done some extra activity, or a new workout, or they ran a little further, but one of the biggest ones is new shoes,” said Dr. Dunleavy.
