Morning Heel PainMorning heel pain is a very common complaint and is particularly acute among those with a heel injury. Usually, morning heel pain is experienced when first getting out of bed in the morning. The pain may begin after placing weight on the heel after any period of extended rest, such as after waking up in the morning. After a long night's sleep, this pain can be almost unbearable. Luckily, this type of heel pain in the morning usually goes away while walking throughout the day as the tissue warms up.
Many factors can contribute to morning heel pain and the conditions that cause it. In most cases, plantar fasciitis is what causes heel pain in the morning. This condition occurs when small tears and inflammation develop along the plantar fascia ligament, which runs along the length of the bottom of the foot. Millions of Americans suffer from this condition and it is the most common condition that affects the heels of the feet. It may also be responsible for morning heel pain.
Another common condition that causes morning heel pain is the presence of a heel spur. This condition is characterized by a bony growth that extends from the heel bone, or calcaneous, into sensitive tissue in the heel. When getting out of bed in the morning, or getting up after long periods of rest, the spur can dig into tissue in the heel, causing severe pain. Pain usually subsides as tissue adjusts around the spur, but can often return later in the day.
The two conditions mentioned above are among the most common ailments responsible for morning heel pain. Rest or further walking can often cause discomfort to subside throughout the morning. When resting, the weight on the feet is reduced, thereby reducing pain that may be generated from inflamed tissue and/or a pointed spur. But it may quickly reoccur when placing weight on the area suddenly.
