MOST FOOT SPECIALISTS, INCLUDING FOOT DOCTORS, CHIROPODISTS AND PODIATRISTS AGREE THAT THERE ARE MANY CAUSES OF HEEL DISCOMFORT WHICH RANGE FROM FRACTURES AND BONE TUMORS AND NERVE COMPLICATION, BUT YOU DON'T HAVE TO LIVE WITH THEM.  ONE OF THE MOST COMMON CAUSES OF HEEL PAIN IS PLANTAR FASCIITIS AND HEEL SPURS. THERE IS A THICK FIBROUS LIGAMENT ON THE BOTTOM OF THE FOOT WHICH CONNECTS THE HEEL BONE TO THE REST OF THE FOOT CALLED PLANTAR FASCIA.  THIS CAN BECOME INFLAMED FROM MANY CAUSES AND CAUSES PAIN WHEN YOU GET OUT OF BED IN THE MORNING.

IF THE INFLAMMATION IS NOT TREATED AND ALLOWED TO BECOME CHRONIC A HEEL SPUR WILL OCCUR COMPLICATING THE SITUATION FURTHER.  THIS CONDITION CAN USUALLY BE TREATED CONSERVATELY WITH PHYSICAL THERAPY, SCHOCKWAVE, STRETCHING, ICE, EXERCISES AND SOMETIMES CORTISONE INJECTIONS.  NEARLY ALWAYS ORTHOTICS NEED TO BE FITTED AS USUALLY THERE IS A BIOMECHANICAL DEFICIT INVOLVED.  REMEMBER AT THE FIRST SIGNS OF TROUBLE TO CALL YOU FOOT SPECIALIST.
