Heel pain is a painful injury that commonly results in prolonged and severe disability. While heel pain is the subject of a growing scientific literature, the accumulation of studies is so fast that it is difficult for the busy physical therapist to keep up and engage in leading-edge evidence based practice.

Specific practical approaches and pearls will be highlighted, in order to help the learner integrate best practice recommendations from the clinical practice guideline.
