According to Kenneth Kilgore, DPM, foot and ankle specialist at Lititz Podiatry, heel pain can be caused by ill-fitting or worn out footwear, overexertion, outright trauma, and biomechanical problems that involve the alignment of the foot with the leg. The condition involves a ligament running along the sole of the foot from heel to toes called the plantar fascial band.
 
Dr. Kenneth Kilgore
 
 
The best treatment protocol for any ailment should be tailored to the patient’s specific needs, taking into consideration the causes, the daily activities of the patient, and potential downtime required for certain treatments. Treatment options include oral medications such as NSAIDs and pain relievers; injectable anti-inflammatory steroids; and mechanical devices beginning with simple heel lifts to compensate for a short leg, and progressing through over-the-counter inserts, to custom made orthotics.
