From teachers and health professionals to construction workers, police, and firefighters, there's no shortage of Chicagoans who spend most of the day on their feet. When you depend on your feet to get you through your day, constant heel pain can be a major obstacle that significantly reduces your quality of life.
The most common heel pain cause in American adults is plantar fasciitis, an inflammation in the band of tissue supporting your arch near the bottom of the heel. Often, heel spurs—calcium deposits that build up on the front of the heel bone—can also occur alongside plantar fasciitis.

Diabetes is a growing epidemic that poses serious health risks for your feet. Excess, uncontrolled sugar in the bloodstream reduces and restricts blood flow in the feet and is poison for nerves in the lower extremities, and that combination leaves people with diabetes at greatly increased risk of sores and injuries that just won't heal.
If you live with diabetes, it's important to have a plan for healthy living and consistent, proactive foot care. Diabetic foot complications can be extremely serious—including serious wounds, foot deformities, and even amputations—and can rob you of your ability to work, enjoy your favorite activities, and even your mobility and independence. But if you take good care of your feet, they'll take good care of you, too.
