Ever wonder why your heel hurst much more, first thing in the morning?
It is a question that most doctors do not seem to have the correct answer for.
The reason, inflammatory cells (swelling) fill the area under the heel, when the feet are not compression the ground by walking.
In bed, the swelling fills, and you stand up to a ball of swelling under the heel which presses on the local nerves- hence severe heel pain
Best quick treatment: an ice bag- 10 minutes under the heel area.
Also make sure you get to a well trained podiatrist that has a real interest in treating heel pain without surgery.
Usually a cure can be had with custom soft orthotics and a bit of ECSW or extra corporal sound wave treatments!
