The pain that occurs under the heel is known as plantar fasciitis. This is the most common cause of heel pain. Pain behind the heel is Achilles tendonitis. Pain can also affect the inside or outside of the heel and foot. In most cases, the pain is not caused by an injury. It's usually mild at first, but it can become serious and sometimes debilitating.
