Heel and Foot Pain

As your heel absorbs the entire impact of your body weight with each step, heel pain can be a common foot and ankle problem. Pain can either be at the bottom or the back of the heel, depending on the root cause. Except for an acute injury, heel pain is not serious but can be very painful to continue everyday activities. Since there are many causes of heel pain, it is best to make an appointment with a Hattiesburg Clinic podiatrist for a proper diagnosis.

Common Causes of Heel Pain

Heel pain can be caused by underlying conditions such as plantar fasciitis, tarsal tunnel syndrome or Achilles tendonitis. Any damage to the heel bone itself can cause bone spurs, small calcium deposits that build up over time. Those with tendonitis or who overuse their ankles are prone to heel bursitis, the inflammation of the bursa that cushions your ankle and Achilles.

When should I call a podiatrist for heel pain?

If you have heel pain lasting longer than two weeks, you cannot put weight on your foot or the pain is accompanied by numbness or tingling, it is best to call our office. We have same-day appointments available to help.

Heel Pain Diagnosis

We can help diagnose the cause of your heel and foot pain with an exam and the use of our in-office X-ray. The podiatrists at Hattiesburg Clinic know any pain when walking can feel debilitating, so we want to get you diagnosed quickly and accurately.
