There are many causes for heel pain. They range from simple mechanical issues to complex metabolic diseases.
One of the most common reasons for heel pain is faulty foot structure. For example, flat feet or high-arched feet, wearing non-supportive footwear on hard, flat surfaces, or even obesity can cause heel pain. Plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, arthritis, or a stress fracture can all be contributing factors for heel pain.
