Most Common Foot Pain Heel Bone Causes

A Painful arch is usually the result of a condition called plantar fasciitis. This occurs when the ligaments across the bottom of your foot are overused. These tissues become inflamed and irritated, until they cannot heal themselves over night. This is why people with arch pain have most of their pain in the morning and after rest. Learn how to treat it here,

A Plantar Fascia Strain could occur if you land very violently and traumatically on your foot. Most people usually hear a snap or feel a pop in their arch.

A Heel Bone Spur is associated with a painful arch. One usually does not happen without the other. A heel spur forms as a result of tight tissues that are “pulling” on the heel bone. These tissues essentially pull a spur off of it over years.

Foot Fat Pad Degeneration results in heel pain every time you take a step because the bottom of your foot is not longer properly cushioned.

A Plantar Fibroma is a large knot or bump on the bottom of your foot. These are also very common and unfortunately only really removable with surgery.

Posterior Tibial Nerve Entrapment is another differential of arch pain. This type of pain creates burning, numbness and tingling throughout the arch of the foot.

A Bruised Heel is felt similar to foot fat pad degeneration. Pain is felt throughout the heel with each step.
