Quick Reference

Bruising of the heel pad caused by striking the heel heavily on the ground. Repeated bruising (e.g. during distance running) can give rise to a precisely localized pain in the heel every time the foot strikes the ground. Rest usually resolves the condition quickly, but additional shock-absorbing heel inserts maybe required to minimize a recurrence.
