How can pain in the heel be treated?
Lack of elasticity of plantar fascia.
Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
The pain on the outside of the heel that you have can be due to lack of elasticity in the plantar fascia. Regular massage, stretching exercises of the foot, hot compress and calcium supplements can help in decreasing the symptoms. Only an MRI scan can help in identifying the exact structure that is damaged.
Hope I have answered your query.
