The most common cause of heel pain is plantar fascists which is commonly referred to as a heel spur. Plantar fascia is a broad band of fibrous tissue which runs along the bottom surface of foot, from heel to toes. Plantar fascists is a condition in which the plantar fascia is inflamed. This condition can be very painful and can cause considerable amount of suffering.
Long standing inflammation causes the deposition of calcium at the point where plantar fascia inserts into the heel. These results in the appearance of a sharp thorn like heel spur. The heel spur is a-symptomatic (not painful), the pain arises from the inflammation of the plantar fascia. Symptoms include a dull ache which is felt most of the time with episodes of a sharp pain in the centre of the heel or on the inside margin of the heel. Often the pain is worse on first rising in the morning and after rest and is aggravated by prolonged weight bearing & thin soled shoes.
CAUSES OF HEEL PAIN :
Excessive load on the foot from obesity is a major cause of plantar fascists.
A sudden increase in weight, such as pregnancy can also lead to plantar fascists.
A sudden increase in walking or a sporting activity can also be a contributing factor.
Tight plantar fascia (this is often caused by tight calf muscles).
Excessive flattening of the arch on weight bearing.
Bio-mechanical problems (walking abnormalities) are a major cause of plantar fascists.
Different types of arthritis can also lead to this condition such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Or the most important symptoms may be due to non functioning of organs properly ie Spleen or Kidney according to the energy movements in the body.
