Bony heel prominence
The heel of your foot is home to the large calcaneous bone.
The plantar fascia originates from the deep arch aspect off the end of the calcaneus. Occasionaly, patients complain of pain at plantar fascia origin. An associated spur (outcropping of bone) juxtaposed to the plantar fascia origin can occur. Rarely excision of the bump is indicated if nonoperative measures fail.
