Are you experiencing heel pain or tenderness? Heel pain is not normal, and it could be a sign of plantar fasciitis or another foot condition. Watch this video as New Jersey podiatrist Dr. Robert Kosofsky explains what might be the underlying cause of your heel pain.

The most common cause of heel pain is typically plantar fasciitis, which is a painful inflammation of the bottom of the foot in a band of tissue that runs from the back of the heel and into the ball of the foot. This band of tissue is called the fascia, and pain occurs when the tissue gets stretched or flattens out. Unfortunately, this foot condition causes a lot of pain and eventually results in heel spur.

If you have heel pain in New Jersey, contact the Family Foot & Ankle Specialists to find out how our Piscataway podiatrists can treat your heel pain so that your foot and ankle can function the way they were intended to perform.
