The most common cause of heel pain in adults is Plantar Fasciitis, which is now more accurately referred to as Plantar Fasciopathy. This is due to the fact that research has shown the condition to be more degenerative in nature as opposed to inflammatory, which has affected the way in which it is now treated. Typically sufferers of the condition will describe intense pain in the heel first thing in the morning or after periods of rest which eases with activity.
In children, the most common type of heel pain is Sever’s and symptoms are typically described at the back of the heel bone at the insertion of the achilles tendon. Sever’s is most commonly seen in very active children and adolescents.
