It may b because of planter facities, heel spur. First try to pull your foot up and hold it for 10 sec. If the reason is heel spur or facities it will be relieved.
Do ankle pumps Do contrast bath therapy- take hot water in one tub & cold water in another tub, first immerse your fooy in hot water for 3 min then immediately in cold water for 1 min, keep repeating for 20 min, twice daily.
Hello Mr. lybrate-user, you have to feel the exact location of heel pain, is it in whole heel, or side of the heel or in middle of heel. As you discussed that you started morning walk, check your shoes if you are wearing shoes, before start walk do proper stretching for fore foot, and suggest Contrast bath you can carry on. If still your pain is not relieving you can consult any specialist.
keep equal balance on both legs . do hot fomentations and calf stretching exercise.
