"Heel pain syndrome is what we call it because it can be a collection of symptoms, one of them being pain when you first get up in the morning. Usually that is a condition called plantar fasciitis, but it can be associated with other things such as a heel spur or a tight Achilles tendon," says Dr. Andrew Belis, a board certified podiatrist and foot and ankle surgeon on Lee Memorial Health System's medical staff. "That contributes to it. Repetitive, over irritation of the ligament. Sometimes, people have a weight gain and they notice this start up," says Dr. Belis.

"Frequently, what I recommend is to do a lot of stretching exercises for their Achilles tendon, or their plantar fascia, to loosen that up a little bit so when they do start to walk on it, it's not so tight. Secondly, you can ice it down, that helps too," says Dr. Belis.
