A common heel pain like plantar fasciitis appears mainly at the early morning after sleep or sometimes at the end of the day. It is like a burning sensation at the feet. Plantar fasciitis mainly connects with the ligament that pulls on the heel bone for a while. Interestingly, people with flat feet develop this type of injury more than others. Again, you may experience such a Sore Feet due to an exhaustion, new pair of shoes or even change of daily routine. Plantar fasciitis may be a source of concern as this recurring type of injury fades away quite difficultly. Itis" normally relates to the inflaming of a definite part of the body, so Bursitis refers to the sustained irritation of the natural cushion that holds the heel of the foot or the bursa. Plantar bursitis is oftentimes linked with Plantar Fasciitis which affects the arch and heel of the foot. Plantar Fasciitis is caused by inflammation of the tissues associated to the heel bone, anticipated to radical pulls and stretches of the fibrous bands that support the arch of the foot. Prolongation of this irritation can lead to heel pain, arch pain or a bony growth on the bottom of the heel bone called a "heel spur". Patients usually describe pain in the heel on taking the first several steps in the morning, with the symptoms lessening as walking continues. They frequently relate that the pain is localized to an area that the examiner identifies as the medial calcaneal tubercle. The pain is usually insidious, with no history of acute trauma. Many patients state that they believe the condition to be the result of a stone bruise or a recent increase in daily activity. It is not unusual for a patient to endure the symptoms and try to relieve them with home remedies for many years before seeking medical treatment. Rest was ranked the number two "treatment". The most important part of my recovery was to finally learn the motto "when in doubt, don't do it". I'm a little afraid to emphasize this too much because reduced activity can lead to atrophy which may be the cause of some cases. It takes 12 to 36 hours for many soft-tissue injuries to reach their maximum soreness, so it's often difficult to know when you're overdoing it or which particular activity (like squatting or climbing stairs) caused the pain to increase again. Swimming is one of the few safe alternative exercises. Heel spur pain can be near unbearable at times, I know. As a former long time foot pain victim I have a very true understanding of how bad it can be to wake up with it, deal with it, then not be able to fall asleep because of it. I've spent a lot of time on my feet all though my life. Having run 2-8 miles a day for wrestling in my late teens and early 20's, then later through the police academy my poor feet have not had any easy life. I bet yours haven't either.
