Fast Facts about Heel Pain

Multiple studies have found that more than 1 in 10 people experience Heel Pain at some point in their lives. (1)(2)


Because it is so common, many sufferers ignore or neglect it until it becomes unbearable.


Some wait for the pain to fade on its own, but chronic cases don’t enjoy this luxury. In such cases, the pain will return or worsen. There’s no reason to wait when the two main causes for Heel Pain are treatable with the right care.

Plantar Fasciitis usually causes pain in the bottom of the heel or along the bottom of the foot and often feels like a sharp stabbing pain.
Achilles Tendonitis causes pain at the back of the heel, along the Achilles Tendon or where it attaches to the heel bone.
