Why do heels hurt?
The most important thing in a person's life is his health. No wealth, no victory will bring you joy, if the body is penetrating physical pain. Moreover, any pain is a signal from our body that not everything is in order. Having understood why heels hurt, having established the main cause of pain, you can eliminate it and recover.
It is said that on our foot there are points associated with every organ of the body. And heels can hurt for a variety of reasons. These can be either the most commonplace reasons (uncomfortable shoes, unsuccessful ascent, gait features) or more serious diseases (heel spur and rheumatoid arthritis).
Let's try to consider the most common diseases.
Heel pain: possible causes
If your work is connected with constant loads on the legs - you walk a lot, you constantly load your heel, you stand for a long time - then you risk earning fasciitis of the sole. What is fascia? It is a thickened connective tissue that runs from the heel to the base of the fingers.From strong loads, it can stretch and inflame, which causes pain.
Another cause of fascia inflammation is too low heels. Shoes should be comfortable - this is a guarantee of health of your entire body.
The treatment of fasciitis in the sole consists in limiting the load on the heels, relaxing for a longer time, perhaps making a series of massages. Be sure to change your shoes to orthopedic.
Fascia protects the base of the heel bone from destruction. When the fascia is inflamed, it stops performing its functions. As a result, a heel-like growth is formed on the calcaneus, which causes pain when walking. The muscles of the foot pierce from the inside - which naturally causes severe pain.
For the treatment, again, we change shoes, and also use two means - "Counter-sex" and "Golden mustache with sabelnik". Both drugs need to be rubbed into the foot and every two hours alternately. First one, two hours later - the second. So continue for two days, and then use the funds three times a day, also alternating with each other.
In advanced cases, you can not do without surgery.
Another cause of heel pain is inflammation of the Achilles tendon. In this case, it is not the heel that hurts, but the area above it - just where the heels of uncomfortable shoes “stick”. Or the foot itself may hurt under the heel - in the depressed part of the foot.
For the treatment using a variety of drugs based on collagen, mainly ointments and gels. There are folk remedies. For example, the shepherd's bag infusion on boiling water. The brewed mixture is wrapped in gauze, wrapped around the tendon and kept to dry.
Here the pain in the heels is much stronger - burning and unbearable. You can get this injury from high heels. Bending of the foot and a long load on it in such a state will lead you to heel diseases sooner or later. With an unsuccessful landing on the heels, for example, during a jump, there is also a great risk of injuring the tendon.
Another reason why the heels of the feet hurt can be infections. The peculiarity of pain in this case will be their constancy. That is, heels hurt not only when walking, but also in a quiet state, even when resting. Such pains in a dream especially amplify.
Infections can be very diverse - even genital, such as gonorrhea or chlamydia.
Infections are treated with antibiotics, strictly as prescribed by a doctor.
Inflammation of the heel area
Lovers drink and meat eaters dedicated. This type of disease occurs in this category of people. This happens because of a violation of metabolic processes, which is provoked by alcohol or an excess of meat. But inflammation of the calcaneal region can be a consequence of other diseases of the joints - arthritis, gout, ankylosing spondylitis and others.
Whatever the reason why your heels hurt, it is best to consult a doctor. See an appointment with a traumatologist and a rheumatologist, take an x-ray and examine to know the exact cause.
