Discomfort & Heel Pain

Had another PT session on Friday. We focused a lot more ankle strengthening and balance this time round. All in all it was a good session and was given a few more things to work on at home.

I have however felt a fair bit of pain developing on the back of my heel. I haven’t had the chance to speak to anyone about it at the moment as most of the city has been on holiday for Chinese New Year. I’m pretty sure the pain is my own doing as a result of walking around far more than I should be doing and not elevating and icing as much as I should have. There are no visible bruises and there is no tendon pain, just the area behind the heel feels very tender. Has anyone else experienced this before? I guess I need to slow down a bit more and really concentrate on my limitations and not walk around for hours on end.
