Heel pain has many causes but a frequently overlooked cause can be a nerve entrapment. Heel pain can be debilitating and make exercising and activities almost impossible. Pain that is described as burning or tingling is usually associated with a nerve entrapment and not necessarily plantar fasciitis. It is possible to have both pathologies existing at the same time.
Often times a diagnostic injection is of value to separate the two pathologies. Nerve entrapments can occur around the ankle or the bottom of the foot.
