A human foot & ankle is a strong, mechanical structure that contains 26 bones, 33 joints, 107 ligaments and 19 muscles

Treatment and prevention

To properly treat heel pain, you must absorb shock, provide cushioning and elevate the heel to transfer pressure. 

This can be accomplished with a heel cup, visco heel cradle, or an orthotic designed with materials that will absorb shock and shear forces. 
When the condition is pronation related (usually plantar fasciitis), an orthotic with medial posting and good arch support will control the pronation and prevent the inflammation of the plantar fascia. Footwear selection is also an important criteria when treating heel pain. Shoes with a firm heel counter, good arch support, and appropriate heel height are the ideal choice.
