Medial “Crushing” Heel Pain- Plantar Fasciitis?

Question:I have reoccurring on my medial calcaneus of my right foot. The pain is felt most when I stretch my calf or put pressure on it. The area I’m describing is seems to be close to where the tibial nerve branches off toward the calcaneus. The pain seems more like a crushing feeling than I nerve type sensation.

Sounds like a form of plantar fasciitis or injury of the medial calcaneal tubercle. Rest will help in both cases. Gentle stretching of the Achilles should be good.The heel pain could also be a compression of the nerve to that area-anywhere from the sacrum down to the calcaneus. If you can’t do-then have it checked out a little sooner. Best bet is to see a Board Certified Podiatrist-who can usually x-ray it or ultrasound diagnose it on the spot & give you same day relief, treatment plan & prognosis. The AnkleNFootCenters can.
