Heel pain can also be a symptom of other diseases, but is very often a clear indication of overload or that your footwear is not appropriate. If you often have pain in your heels, it is a good idea to consider whether you walk too much on too hard a surface, or whether you have misalignments in your feet, such as flat feet or hollow feet.
The forefoot and heels become heavily strained when we move or stand up for many hours at a time, and many therefore experience developing heel pain. If you have pain in your heels, you should look at, among other things, your footwear and your activity pattern. Be sure to react - although of course you may have heel pain for a single day, without it meaning that you are developing, for example, heel spurs. However, if you generally start to suffer from heel pain, you are wise to react quickly.
