  • It is good effective practically experienced by me. grab one or two leaves of arka leaves which is normally available in all open lands. Keep these leaves on the paining heels or paw just like that and cover with shoe socks. If shoe socks are not available you can cover with some cloth. By applying this type for two three days your pain get vanished. Other names of arka are erukku in Tamil, aakanda in Bengali, jilledu in Telugu,

  • There are not much details in the question about the age, occupation, overall health and body structure and other health issues. Hence it may not be possible to suggest any specific remedies.
    However I may suggest some general suggestions assuming you are normal healthy and normal in other parameters.
    1. Examine your heels after washing clean with soap and warm water. Ensure there is no inflammation or wound.
    2. Apply common popular pain relieving ointments or oils externally at the affected heel.
    3. If you are walking a lot for your work or for other purpose, reduce the speed, distance and duration if possible. Otherwise take short period rest after some walking and relieve strain on the heels.
    4. Check your footwear and if they are worn out at heels, change to new comfortable footwear.
    5. Whenever possible keep foot at knee level on a teapoy or stool, so that the heels get rest.
    6. Dissolve some common salt in comfortably warm water and dip feet in that and keep for some time.
    7. If you have a habit of keeping feet exposed while sleeping at night, especially during cold season or under fan, cover feet also.
    8. Take a common simple pain and inflammation relieving, muscle relaxant tablet for two days. Do not exceed the dose and frequency.

    If by all these if the pain does not subside or stop, then you have to consult a qualified doctor.

  • There are many reasons of the heel pain but the most common is that there maybe some weakness in the tendon or connective tissues in the areas adjacent to the heel bones. Please note that heel is the place where all the load of body is acting and though the heel bone is bigger and is supposed to take this load but with time and exertion it is very possible that it is not able to take that load due to problem in the connecting tissues or ligaments.
    This requires a thorough investigation by the doctor to identify the cause so that it can be treated. If pain is not continuous then physiotherapy also helps in the matter. If some inflammation is associated then some anti inflammatory medicines would be prescribed.
    Any weakness or fatigue near the heel bone will result in pain and it is obvious that periodic rest would be required to be taken.
    Whatever medicines (allopathic or ayurvedic or nature cure) you take are for the symptomatic relief of the pain and though most of them will reduce the feeling of pain but would not be able to cure the underlying ailment and it would repeat and come back. A good doctor having expertise in arthritis and joints will be able to give a correct advice in the matter. The problems of ligaments, joints, and bones take time in healing and it is imperative that any exerting work which creates a pressure on heel is to be avoided.

    Knowledge is power.
