www.sofootankle.com Heel pain is common because usually it’s the first thing to hit the ground. It takes a lot of the body weight. Runners can have heel pain; they can get Achilles tendon problems, which attaches to the heel so you can have back of the heel pain where that tendon attaches.

Most of it, though, is from the heel being the first thing to hit the ground and such force is transmitted through the heel.
