Pain in the Back of the heel I've been having this pain at the back of the heel for quite sometime and it doesnt go away. The part which is pain is bone which contacts the soccer ball when doing a backheel pass hahaha! Yeah after my badminton games it feels really bruised down there and when i rubbed it its very painful. After resting for a feel days the pain still remains there. However sometimes when i bend my foot the heel feels pain as well so I'm not sure if the pain comes from the bone or maybe the tendon or muscles behind the heel bone. Does anyone experience this problem too? MY coach says I should use softer shoes, but does it even help?I'm not sure if shoes cause the problem.
