Heel pain makes you feel miserable. If it's severe, you may even find it difficult to walk and do the things you need to do. There are different causes of heel pain, so you may need to see a podiatrist to determine if you have plantar fasciitis, tendonitis, bursitis, or another problem. Knowing the cause of your pain makes it easier to find an effective treatment. If your pain is caused by bursitis, you may need to rest and change the type of shoes you wear.
