My wife has pain in both the heels at one particular point. More so when she has to stand for extended period at a stretch. The pain is there everyday. What might be the reason and what should she do?

Good afternoon. The pain commonly is due to excess bone growth. Better consult ortho or general surgeon. Till then, hot fomentation, cold compressors, vitamins and pain killer drugs can be tried.

Wrong kind of footwear or staying bare foot for long duration causes these problems. Ask her to wear Dr. Scholl sole shoes, and also do hot and cold fomentation alternatively in both the legs every night.
