Heel pain can stem from a number of causes, from injury or deformity to a number of health conditions.

The American Podiatric Medical Association says you can help prevent heel pain by:

  • Making sure that shoes fit well and provide good sturdy support.
  • Wearing appropriate footwear for all activities.
  • Getting rid of shoes that are worn on the soles or heels.
  • Warming up and stretching before and after running or working out. Also, pacing yourself while exercising.
  • Losing any extra weight.
  • Eating a nutritious diet.
  • Getting plenty of rest.
