Yes! Very common. : The most common cause of heel pain is plantar fasciitis: an inflammation of a thick band of tissue that helps hold up the arch of your foot. It attaches to your heel bone, and is usually the most painful for the first few steps in the morning, or after sitting a long time and then standing quickly. See your podiatrist to rule out stress fracture or tarsal tunnel syndrome.

Yes: It is the single most common complaint a podiatrist hears and lucky for our patients many treatment options are available!
