Heel pain can stem from foot abnormalities causing pressure on the foot such as hammertoe or flat feet. Bunions can also cause heel pain. Bunions cause the joint of the toe to turn inwards and may also cause problems while wearing shoes and walking. Those with severe bunions can have orthotic shoes made for them to ease the pain.
