Heel pain is one of the most common problems seen at the Tampa Heel Pain Center. Other terms commonly used for heel pain include heel spur and plantar fasciitis. This type of pain typically occurs on the bottom of the heel. Pain on the back of the of the heel where the bone may be enlarged may be called a “pump bump” or Haglund’s deformity and is often associated with pain and inflammation of the achilles tendon. Heel pain has practically become an epidemic, affecting all ages, body types and those with various activity levels.
The pain often occurs in the morning when getting out of bed and after sitting for periods of time and then standing. As you walk you may find that the pain eases as the heel tissues stretch out and the area warms.
