Why do I have heel pain in the morning?
If the pain occurs behind your heel toward the top of the bone, it might be Achilles tendinitis. This aching pain is a similar problem that happens when a tight Achilles and calf muscles cause tension where the tendon attaches to the calcaneus. It is often the result of overuse when running or playing sports, or from a sudden increase in activity that your body isn’t prepared for. It too can be relieved with stretches and heel pads.
To find out if one of these conditions is causing your pain issues, call Ankle and Foot Specialist of New Jersey for an examination. Our office in South Plainfield, NJ can be reached at 908-222-8980.
