Hello there,,,well there are number of reasons for heel pain ..how is the pain type is it dull ,throbbing or burning type?.... sometimes conditions vary from talgia to calcaneal spur which is a bony outgrowth(for which x ray is required).... many patients of heel pain whom i have treated had problems with faulty footwear...so modification of footwear with soft heel cushions along with setting of local ultrasound with diclofinac based gel usually brings relief in 5 settings,,,along with stretching exercise for feet..however if the pain is severe and conservative modalities fail to bring relief.... steroid injection at the site of pain is considered.
Next Steps
Xray to rule out calcaneal spur
