Heel Pain

Over the past few weeks I've been experiencing a lot of pain in my left heel. I have back issues due to which I've had to spend a lot of time on my feet and that's probably triggered something. Are there special shoes I can wear to prevent further foot fatigue or use special inserts to make it better? Thanks for your help!

Hi there!

I would suggest getting the foot examined by a primary care physician or an orthopedician for secondary issues like fasciitis, stress fractures, spurs, heel pad syndrome etc. before deciding on a management plan. Meanwhile you may try resting the foot and avoiding heels for relief.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!

Hi Dr. Kaul,

Thanks for your help! I'm in the process of scheduling an appointment with my doctor now, and I'm also looking into wearing better shoes.
