Heel pain often described as sharp stabbing pain underneath the heel when getting up after rest is often caused by plantar fasciitis.
Painful heel conditions such as a heel spur can also cause the same symptoms and need the correct treatment approach in order to resolve the problem.
Plantar fasciitis can affect anyone, it is an inflammation of the plantar fascial attachment at the heel and can often cause pain in the back of the heel as well as underneath. Usually worse first thing in the morning when first getting out of bed and after sitting for a while then standing up, this painful heel condition can cause much discomfort.
The cause can be varied but overpronated feet which result in flat feet or dropped arches can often cause plantar fasciitis. Pes Cavus which is high arches and a high instep can also be responsible along with overuse and an increased body weight putting more pressure on the arches of the feet.
