Why Does My Heel Hurt in the Morning?

If you are experiencing morning foot pain that goes away after getting up and using your feet, you may be suffering from plantar fasciitis. This is one of the most common causes of heel pain. The reason your foot hurts more in the morning is because the plantar fascia (the long band of tissue running from your toes to your heel) has contracted from not been used overnight. The first steps are painful, until it gradually stretches out again, easing the pain. Many conservative treatments are available for plantar fasciitis.

If you are feeling pain in your feet that is worse in the morning, call Dr. Mitchell Wachtel at 888-616-2512 or schedule an appointment at one of three Massachusetts office locations. We are here to help ease your heel pain.
