My heel hurts first thing in the morning what could that be?

Whilst not the only possible cause of heel pain in the morning in your heels is a very common symptom of plantar fasciitis. When a patient come to our clinic and explains they’ve been experiencing these sort of symptoms. We do a full assessment to determine exactly what’s causing the pain. Whilst plantar fasciitis is probably the most common injury in that part of the foot the pain could also be due to an Achilles injury, retrocalcaneal bursitis, tibialis posterior dysfunction or an array of other muscle tendinopathies. As there are quite a few possibilities it is always a great idea to come and find out exactly what is happening so we can help you start to get better.
