Weird painful pull in my right heel, how can i fix it ?

My heel has recently began with this weird pulling feeling if a lean too far forward with my feet flat on the ground or if i extend my right leg all the way with my foot pointing upward. It s like a tendon is wrapped around the arch . This happened after I was sitting on my knees and my right leg made a sudden painful POP, and I found that it was incredibly painful to outstretch my leg. I worked my leg to an outstretched position which was also incredibly painful and it popped back into place with minor pain that went away the next day. My leg functions fine now but my heel is become an annoyance. What happened and how can I fix it?

Hi,thanks for query.This can happen at times when there is forceful movement of food and the muscles gets stretched and at times even damage to them.After that when ever that set of muscles come in to action they causes pain because of swelling.Do not put pressure on your hell too much.Try applying ice on tender area,you can also use local analgesic.Try to use elastic bandage as if you are wearing a socks.This should be fine in a week,bye.
