In brief: Stretch

Often heel pain is due to plantar fascitis and stretching of the calf and achilles along with proper supportive shoes and inserts or orthotics can help.
If your heel pain persist too long you need to be evaluated for possible other reasons for your heel pain such as nerve problems, bone tumors, or stress fracture.
