Different Heel Pain

Posted by Doug C. on 9/10/02 at 15:30 (094927)

I have tenderness not under my heel, but behind my heel. Specifically, the bone on the back of my foot is very tender, and it hurts when I stretch/lift my foot, not when I put weight on my foot. Is this PF or something else, and what should I do about it?

It does not sound like PF but rather a problem at the insertion of the achilles. It is a good idea to get it checked out.

Thanks much for the advice. Would you suggest a sports medicine doctor or a podiatrist?
