My right heel hurts like crazy when I get out of bed in the morning, but by mid day, it’s okay. What’s going on?

There is a stretchy ligament type of material supporting the sole of your foot. It is attached at the heel. This material is called the plantar fascia. If through overuse or injury the plantar fascia becomes inflamed, every time you take a step with no arch support, it pulls on your heels and really hurts. Each morning you re-injure it. If you make sure to put on shoes or slippers with arch supports when you get out of bed, and if you wear arch supports in your shoes, and do gentle stretching exercises, your plantar fascia can have time to heal. We work with plantar fasciitis every day. Come on in and let us help you get some relief.
