Continuous pain in heels

My wife is feeling continuous pain in both heels, she is a house wife and most of her time goes in managing household things. She has been complaining about this pain for 1 month now, initially it was light then its unbearable after some days, she said after getting up from bed she feel numbness in heels and it hurts walking for some time. Please suggest should we go for physiotherapy or small acupressure device could help?

Hi there. Heel pain could be due to multiple causes like obesity, plantar fascitis, Achilles tendinitis, bursitis, fracture of heel bone, flat foot, cracked heel ... you can reduce heel pain by reducing weight if your overweight, take Nsaids, wear proper footwear, rest well , don't stand or put pressure over heel for long, never walk barefoot, apply moisturizer in night-helps heel cracks, place foot in warm water for ten mins it helps by increasing blood flow.. you can try acupuncture even, it helps many of them..hope this helps you..
