Hello there.

I can understand your concern.
There are two possibilities, one is plantar fascitis, second, it could be a calcaneal spur.
But to diagnose, you will need to take her to a orthopedician in person. He will examine her and ask you to get a few tests done of which one will be a x-ray.
After establishing the diagnosis, he will proceed with the treatment.
As of now, you can ask her to take tab. Zerodol-p twice a day after food for pain management.
Best regards.
Dr. Anil Kumar Jain.
