What causes my heel pain?

Heel pain occurs most commonly when the plantar fascia, the broad band of tissue running along the bottom of your foot, becomes inflamed. This condition called plantar fasciitis occurs more frequently in runners and other active people, those who have a foot type such as flat feet, and those who wear shoes that do not provide proper foot support. Whether you have flat feet or another type of foot structure and you’re experiencing heel pain, request an appointment today with one of our expert Seattle podiatrists at the Foot and Ankle Center of Lake City.
