Heel pain is pain directly at the base of the heel and is often referred to as heel spur syndrome. The causes of heel pain are not entirely clear. Risk factors include overuse such as from long periods of standing, an increase in exercise, and obesity. It is also associated with inward rolling of the foot and a lifestyle that involves little exercise.
Neglecting heel pain will cause more damage to the heels and surrounding areas including legs If this continues to degenerate the connective tissue can tear or rupture, requiring cast immobilization to possibly surgical intervention.
