In brief: Ice NSAIDs

If this is acute heel pain, try a period of rest and icing to the area with over the counter nsaids taken as directed.
If you don't get better, see a specialist for possible referral for pt and or other treatment options.

In brief: Depends on the cause

Heel pain is most often caused by plantar fasciitis, a condition that is sometimes also called heel spur syndrome when a spur is present.
Heel pain may also be due to other causes, such as, infection, tendonitis, arthritis, stress fracture, nerve irritation, retained foreign body, bone tumor, or a cyst. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.
