Heel pain is a very common problem in present era. A number of patients knock at the door of Doctors daily for heel pain only. There are so many drugs under Homoeopathy for the same and very frequent failures are there in treating heel pain, and consequently the patient turn towards another sort of treatments. This is our lack of knowledge, nothing else. To over come these problems, we must first know the basic causes for heel pain.

First, we must know the anatomy of heel. I am not going to take space here for this point, as this is easily available in various textbooks on anatomy. I am coming to causes of heel pain directly.

1- Attenuation of Achilles tendon.
2- Achilles tendon bursitis.
3- Stress fractures of bones in heel. (Diffuse tenderness).
4- Cyst formation.
5- Plantar fasciitis.
6- Haglund's disease (Prominent Posterio - superior calcaneal tubrosity.)
7- Reactive osteosclerosis of the posterio - inferior tuberosity ( Due to abnormal Achilles tendon insertion)
8- Calcaneal spur.
9- Plantar fat pad atrophy.
10- Traumatic disruption of plantar fat pad septa.

Now, we must we aware of the symptoms of each disorder stated above are different but all of them are localized to heel. Almost all the patients feel unable to explain their sufferings so clearly as to make distinction easy to the physician.
Here radiological diagnosis is of great value. After a very careful examination and investigation the doctor can reach to the cause of pain.
I am giving here a work on short repertorizations based upon various repertories. Only particular rubrics are used here to understand role of various remedies related to pain in heels. However, during prescribing Homoeopathically, all the rules must strictly be followed.

These are the rubrics available in various repertories, which are related to heel- pain. However many among them can be related to numerous other problems, the synthesis of a particular rubric for heel- pain may need single or combination of one or many of these. A doctor can now reach to the point of illness and may diagnose and ascertain the real site or structures of involvement and use the given rubrics in making the similimum.
A Homoeopath, after very keen observation and very careful evaluation of the signs and symptoms taken, can most precisely make the similimum picture of the suffering and thenceforth can heal the ailments best.
