Plantar Fasciitis/ Heel Pain

Heel pain, especially stabbing heel pain, is most often caused by plantar fasciitis, a condition that is sometimes also called heel spur syndrome when a spur is present. Heel pain may also be due to other causes, such as a stress fracture, tendonitis, arthritis, nerve irritation, in rarely cases by a cyst.

Plantar fasciitis is common in sports which involve running, dancing and jumping, and individuals that are on their feet for long periods. Other causes of plantar fasciitis include a recent change in training style or intensity, wearing footwear which is unsupportive or that has poor cushioning. Being overweight can also put extra strain on the plantar fascia.

Because there are several potential causes, it is important to have heel pain properly diagnosed.

Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the band of tissue - the plantar fascia that extends from the heel to the toes. In this condition, the fascia first becomes irritated and then inflamed, resulting in heel pain.
