Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain. The plantar fascia, that runs across the bottom of foot and connects heel bone to your toes gets inflamed.
Plantar fasciitis commonly causes stabbing pain that usually occurs with your very first steps in the morning. The pain of plantar fasciitis normally decreases after taking few steps, but it may return after long periods of standing or after getting up from a seated position.
Plantar fasciitis is particularly common in runners. In addition, people who are overweight and those who wear shoes with inadequate support are at risk of plantar fasciitis.
Under normal circumstances, plantar fascia acts like a shock-absorbing bowstring, supporting the arch in foot. If tension on that bowstring becomes too great, it can create small tears in the fascia. Repetitive stretching and tearing can cause the fascia to become irritated or inflamed.
Factors that may increase your risk of developing plantar fasciitis include:
• certain types of exercise.
• faulty foot mechanics.
• occupations that keep you on your feet
Ignoring plantar fasciitis may result in chronic heel pain that hinders regular activities. Change in the way of walking to minimize plantar fasciitis pain, develops foot, knee, hip or back problems.
What to expect from your doctor
• do your symptoms tend to occur at a particular time of day?
• what types of shoes do you usually wear?
• are you a runner, or do you participate in any sports that involve running?
• do you have a physically demanding job?
• have you experienced any injuries to your feet in the past?
• besides your foot, do you feel pain anywhere else?
• what, if anything, seems to improve your symptoms?
• what, if anything, appears to worsen your symptoms?
During the physical exam, your doctor checks for points of tenderness in your foot. The location of your pain can help determine its cause.
Sometimes an x-ray shows a spur of bone projecting forward from the heel bone. In the past, these bone spurs were often blamed for heel pain and removed surgically. But many people who have bone spurs on their heels have no heel pain.
Stretching and strengthening exercises or use of specialized devices may provide symptom relief. These include:
• physical therapy.
• night splints.
• surgical or other procedures
When more-conservative measures aren't working,
Extracorporeal shock wave therapy.
To reduce the pain of plantar fasciitis, try these self-care tips:
• maintain a healthy weight.
• choose supportive shoes.
• don't wear worn-out athletic shoes.
• change your sport.
• apply ice.
• stretch your arches

Heel spur occurs when there is a growth or a hook formation under the heel. This is formed by calcium deposits. This process is a long drawn process and it takes time for calcium deposits to cause a heel spur in a person. In fact, such a condition can also be triggered by a sprain or a tear in the ligament. Heel spurs are very common in athletes who regularly run, jog or kick using their heel strength a lot. Heel spurs can be treated with the help of physiotherapy. With sports injuries, the first form of treatment which is tried out is physiotherapy. Though it heals and is very much treatable, the healing period might be a long one and the process might be painful for some.
Symptoms of a Heel Spur:
Interestingly, the excessive calcium growth itself does not cause any pain in the individual suffering from this disease. It is in fact, the inflammation caused in the muscle due to the heel spur, which makes a person experience tremendous pain during this period. One also feels constant irritation along with pain. It has been noticed that the pain is not constant, but rather irregular. It might pain in the morning and subside throughout the day, if less stress is put on the heel. Then again, it might increase when you walk, run or jog for a long time.
Treatments For Heel Spur:
To treat a heel spur, the specific cause and origins need to be known to the medical practitioners of the physiotherapists. Also, if medicines need to be prescribed, then a medical history of the patient including any specific long-term medications or allergies are taken special note of. Most importantly, an X-Ray is taken to rule out all other forms of diseases and to confirm that it is indeed a heel spur.
After properly confirming the cause and the disease, specific treatment is started on the individual. Treatments would include reducing the inflammation to reduce pain, strapping of the heel to reduce movement and pressure, thereby giving time to heal and even prolonged periods of rest with exercises. Insoles are also tried out to provide relief to the heels and make the extra growth diminish its presence. Slow mobilisation of the patient is an absolute must, but care is taken that it does not cause too much stress on the feet.
