What is Classified As Heel Pain?

Heel pain is classified as pain in the area underneath the back of your heel.  The heel bone is the largest of 26 bones in the foot.  The heel bone is also associated with a network of more than 100 ligaments, tendons, and muscles.

Heel pain is usually associated with a faulty mechanical movement, which ends up placing too much stress on the soft tissue in the foot and on the heel bone.  Pain in this location could be linked to plantar fasciitis. If the pain is located closer to the Achilles tendon, then it could be Achilles tendonitis.
