Doc, why do my heels hurt? I hear this question at least once a Vitamove Back Pain Relief Reviewday in my office. When I think about it I wonder why I don't hear this complaint more often than I do. It is estimated that the normal person takes 1 million steps per year. With each step, each foot is required to hold one to one and a half times body weight. When you run you put two to five times body weight on each foot. Then when you add the force of impact the load sky rockets. So it is really amazing how much stress is put on the heels and how well they hold up under all this stress. The short answer to Why do my heels hurt? is inflammation. Heel pain is usually due to inflammation where the plantar fascia attaches to the heel. As with all inflammation the proper initial treatment is rest to allow healing and then correct the problem to prevent it from happening again. However for most people this simply is not practical. You need to walk around. You just can't put your feet up for a few days. Who among us in our busy lives can take a couple of days off our feet. Even if we could rest for a few days if the problem that caused the pain is not corrected, the pain will return. The key is to correct the problem. In order to correct the problem we have to know the cause.
