Re: Sprained Tendon (right heel)

You might have Plantar fasciitis- which is an inflammation of the plantar fascia or tendon-like band that helps support the arch. This can be present with or without a heel spur. There are numerous treatments which can include anti-inflammatory medicines, ice, stretching, pre-fab orthotics, custom orthotics, taping, injections of cortisone, physical therapy and even surgery.

I recommend you see a podiatrist to get more answers

Good luck.
