Heel pain is one of the most common forms of foot pain and may be caused by wearing shoes that do not fit properly, injury, or conditions such as achilles tendonitis, heel bursitis and plantar fascitis. This pain is often most severe in the morning or after prolonged activity. Patients may also experience swelling, redness and heat. In serious cases, if heel pain goes untreated, bone spurs may develop causing more severe pain.
