FAQs / Q: Why does my heel hurt when I get out of bed?

A: You may have plantar fasciitis, a condition caused by overuse or strain of the plantar fascia, which is a structure that starts at the heel bone and runs across the bottom of your foot.  The plantar fascia relaxes when you’re in bed or off of your feet, and can be stretched or pulled when you begin walking.  For more information, visit our page on heel pain.
