Hi,

This means that there is increase blood flowing to the areas that he is looking at. This is usually the heel and or pf area. Now what does this means. The list is swellling, infection and or stress fracture. Since he didn't make a big deal it probaby means that the area is swollen and this points out exactly where this area is. What kind of treatment are you doing for this pain?
