Heel pain can be caused by problems with a walking gait abnormality. Sometimes there is too much stress placed on the heel bone as well as on the soft tissues that is attached to it. Stress to the heel may also come from an injury that occurred while you were walking, running, or jumping on hard surfaces. Wearing poorly constructed shoes can also contribute to heel pain as can being overweight. A common cause of heel pain is a heel spur. A heel spur is a bony growth that forms on the underside of the heel bone. This is clearly visible on an x-ray. Rheumatoid arthritis can also be a cause of heel pain. Treatments for heel pain are varied and may include: stretching exercises; icepacks; shoe modifications; anti-inflammatory medications; weight loss; physical therapy; or orthotic devices.
