A common cause of heel pain is plantar fasciitis or plantar fasciosis. In these cases, the pain comes from overuse and degeneration and / or a tear in the plantar fascia at the point where it attaches to the heel bone. Although an injury can lead to heel pain, there rarely is a clear cause and effect association.
Heel pain can take the form of a sharp, burning or aching sensation. In most cases, the pain occurs on only one heel, although both feet can be affected. Men and women seem to be equally vulnerable; most patients are middle-aged people who tend to be overweight.
