Re: heel pain

: I have been having a problem with pain at the side of my heel, does not spread to the arch. Xray show no spur. I've tried anti-inflammatories. I am using a heel cushion that helps somewhat but after I play tennis it is very painful, unable to put any pressure on the heel. Any suggestions as what to do next

Stop playing tennis.
This is how I developed plantar fasciitis that has plagued me for two painful years.
Orthotic inserts from a podiatrist may help - correct the movement of the foot - support the arch (arch tension begins inthe heel).
Horseriding has been the best treatement for my feet!
Research and act now. Goos Luck.
