What is Heel pain Ayurvedic treatment


Heel pain is the pain in the posterior end of the foot, especially on the underside. It can occur due to multiple reasons, and the pain generally restricts movements such as walking or running.1

In Ayurveda, the condition described as Vatakantaka (vata - vata dosha; kantaka - thorns) or Padakantaka, involves pain in the heel as a cardinal symptom. Ayurveda categorizes it as a Vatapradhanavyadhi (Disease due to high involvement of vata) and is generally a result of heavy walking or walking on uneven surfaces, excessive strain on heels, standing or walking for long, use of hard foot wears, prolonged pressure over heel or ankle joint etc. factors lead to vitiation of Vata dosha. Aggravated Vata will affect the muscle and joints of heel  and cause severe pain and pricking sensation in the feet, especially the rear portion and its underside (the heel).2
