These days, at-home workout options like Peloton indoor cycles can be lifesavers when it comes to staying physically healthy, as well as working off anxiety. But if you’re new to at-home cycling and other home gym equipment — or just prone to overdoing it — you may be dealing with the kind of foot pain you’ve never experienced before.
Pain in the base of the heel is the most common foot problem our patients have. We put tons of stress on our feet just by walking on them each day, not to mention things like exercising, playing sports and wearing irritating shoes. When given a little care and rest, heel pain will usually heal itself over time. However, if heel pain is ignored and you continue to put stress on it, it could develop into a serious condition.
