Sometimes having pain seems very straightforward – you have a tear/bulge/strain in X so it hurts.

Have you ever experienced heel pain? Achilles tendonitis is fairly common – with almost 200,000 annual cases in the US. And while it commonly affects runners, if you have feet – you can have pain here.

And because of the Achilles’ direct connection to your plantar fascia, tendonitis and plantar fasciitis go hand in hand. (or is it foot in foot? 🤔)

So if you’re currently struggling with heel pain, have had it in the past, or just want to know what you can do right now to prevent it, today’s episode has you covered.
