Heel Pain- Plantar Fasciitis

Heel pain is frequently related to plantar fasciitis. While previously heel spurs were described as the primary cause of pain, it is now felt that the spur is formed in response to the strain placed on the calcaneus or heel. Treatment of the primary plantar fasciitis will help to control the symptoms. PRP injections (with possible fat grafts) may be very helpful for plantar fasciitis and other foot and ankle injuries (please see foot and ankle for other related injuries).
