Causes of Heel Pain
A common cause of heel pain is plantar fasciitis, a strain of the ligament that supports your arch. Plantar fasciitis often develops due to overuse, such as lots of running or wearing shoes that are unsupportive or too tight. Flip-flops, high heels, and worn-out tennis shoes are often to blame.
Heel pain can also develop due to warts or cuts or cracks that just don’t heal. Other common causes can be nerve pain and tarsal tunnel syndrome. In children, heel pain can be caused by Sever’s disease which is an inflammation of the growth plate.
