Back of heel pain

Posted by Claude M on 6/20/01 at hrmin (051131)

I just started this pain on the back of my right foot heel. The pain only appears under a speccific type of movement.

- Stand up
- Bend knees a little bit
- lean my upper body forward as if I want to reach the floor with my hands.
- Ouch! I feel a pull on the back of the heel, as if a ligament was being pulled.

The pain does not occur if I do not bend the knees before leaning my upper body.

In case it may be related, I have a lower back problem that has been haunting me over the last 8 months.

Do these symptoms look like a well-known problem?
