What is treatment for heel pain?
Heel pain without any trauma is usually due to deficiency of caicium and vitamin D. Try it. If you have diabetes also, then must control it and take sufficient doses of vitamin B complex and chromium picolinate and zinc and manganese. plantar fascitis, crack of calcaneus, Achile tendonitis and calf muscle spasm may also cuse heel pain. Use good cushion in shoes. Use local poultice with standard antiinflammatory Ayurvedic or Allopathic medicaments. Massage calf muscles.

Use an orthopaedic heel insert that raises your heel slightly.
It could be, but only if you have arthritis in your heel. If they pain is very persistent, it is likely a good idea to consult a physician who will be able to tell you if it's… arthritis for sure or not.
Heel spurs and plantar fasciitis are treated by measures that decrease the associated inflammation and avoid reinjury. Local ice applications both reduce pain and inflammation…. Physical therapy methods, including stretching exercises, are used to treat and prevent plantar fasciitis. Anti-inflammatory medications, such as ibuprofen or injections of cortisone, are often helpful. Orthotic devices or shoe inserts are used to take pressure off plantar spurs (donut-shaped insert), and heel lifts can reduce stress on the Achilles tendon to relieve painful spurs at the back of the heel. Similarly, sports running shoes with soft, cushioned soles can be helpful in reducing irritation of inflamed tissues from both plantar fasciitis and heel spurs. Infrequently, surgery is performed on chronically inflamed spurs. http://www.medicinenet.com/heel_spurs/article.htm
I had two heel spurs, one in each heel. I suffered terribly for about 5 years, and I worked in a hospital ?.. No- one knew about these at the time I was in pain, till I bought… two Orthotics half way ones, and used them every-time I was on my feet. It took about three months for the pain to go. The heel spurs (they are a bone that looks like a claw.) they stay, but the inflammation around the heel spur goes. It's the only thing that helped get rid of mine, without having an operation or injections. Do not wear tight fitting or high heeled shoes . You could also buy full fitting shoes but a half a size bigger to be able to take the Orthotic comfortably. Try and use Trainers with the orthotics in at all times. Therapeutic treatment of heel pain associated with Plantar Fasciitis, Heel spurs, and related discomforts use Heel Orthotics. The orthotic helps lift the Plantar Fasciitis directly beneath the part of the foot where the heel meets the arch of the foot. These help the heel's natural fat pad, and provides natural structural reinforcement to prevent collapse of the mid foot. You can buy them from a chemist, the ones you have fitted, cost an arm and a leg. So make inquiries first about the cost. I hope this information helps everyone who has this very painful affliction. Believe me it REALLY WORKS... It certainly did for me.

To understand how to get rid of heel spurs, it is important to understand how heel spurs develop. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body but may also be the most d…eficient. The amount of calcium that we absorb from our food varies widely. Our age is one factor. An adolescent may absorb up to 75% of the calcium obtained from foods, while in adults the maximum absorption rate ranges from 20% to 30%. Even though our bones feel solid and seem permanent they're just like any other body tissue - they're constantly being broken down and formed again. In an adult, 20 percent of bone calcium is withdrawn from bones and replaced each year. Thus, every five years the bones are renewed. Calcium is found in the extra cellular fluids and soft tissues of the body where it is vital to normal cell functioning. Much of the calcium in soft tissues is concentrated in muscle, although it is contained in the membrane and cytoplasm of every cell. When the body is deficient of calcium it begins to leach calcium from the bones. In many people this happens to be in the heel of the foot or some other weak area of the body. As the calcium is being leached, it forms an eruption (similar to a volcano). This eruption is the bone spur. Many people that have suffered from bone spurs found relief when they properly supplemented their diet daily with "good" calcium. They found that providing their body with "good" calcium along with other vital minerals stopped the "leaching process" (calcium deficiency) thus allowing the bone spur to shrink down and eventually disappear. With the bone spur gone, the surrounding damage from the spur is able to heal also. Important: The calcium+ must be carefully formulated to be easily digested to accomplish the "good" calcium environment in building healthy body/bone cells. Many people have eliminated heel spurs without surgery by supplementing their diet with a good calcium formula.
You may be referring to gout. Refined sugar doesn't help but the bigger culprits would be alcohol, meats, shellfish, organ meats, and rapid weight loss. Anything that produces… purines or increases uric acid levels must be avoided. Drinking pure cherry juice helps some people with gout.
To alleviate foot pain in the heel, applying ice to the area affected will help. Combining this method with anti-inflammatory over-the-counter medications such as ibuprofen or… aspirin.
causes of heel pain can include gout or stress fracture, bone tumors, nerve entrapment or thinning of the fat pad beneath the heel. Gout is a type of arthritis cau…sed by the reaction of the body to needle-like crystals of uric acid that accumulate in joint spaces. This reaction causes inflammation, swelling, and pain in the affected joint, most commonly the big toe. Certain types of proteins are not properly processed by people with gout and the proteins end up causing an increase in the uric acid mentioned in a previous answer. Often these specific proteins cannot be completely avoided. In that case, specific medications have been discovered that can help you dissolve the uric acid crystals. While gout in the big toe is most common, crystals can accumulate anywhere and can cause kidney damage. Foods high in purines should be avoided by victims of gout. The disease "Gout" is the result of having too much uric acid in the blood stream. When uric acid in the blood reaches saturation point, fine sharp crystals of urate are formed and deposited in the tissues of the body, these crystals are particularly prone to settle in the synovial fluid and joint linings, (synovial lining) of the peripheral joints of the body. When this takes place it is followed by joint inflammation and pain (arthritis). Hard lumps of uric acid can settle in and around the joints leading to chronic disease that can also cause joint destruction, decreased kidney function, and kidney stones. Uric acid is formed by the breakdown of purines that make up a part of many of the foods we eat. If the body is unable to eliminate enough uric acid then this can result in attacks of painful arthritis (gout attack), kidney stones, and blockage of the kidney filtering tubules with uric acid crystals, this in turn can lead to kidney failure. However, some people may only develop hyperuricemia or elevated blood uric acid levels and not end up with arthritis or kidney problems.

What i used to do in highschool football is use epson salt and soak the heel in hot water. You should then ice it down and rub the heel inbetween. Repeat this process over and… over until your heels feel better
A strained Achilles tendon would cause heel pain. Just take it easy for a few days and the pain should go away and be sure to stretch it out good before doing much running.
