Talalgia - Definition


Definition


Talalgia is a generic term used to describe all types of pain located in the heel, caused by various different conditions. It can be due to damage to the Achilles tendon, Sever's disease secondary to inflammation of part of the heel bone (the calcaneus), plantar fasciitis meaning inflammation of one of the membranes close to the muscles of the foot pad, or trauma. By examining the Achilles tendon, a tendinitis can be revealed, and x-ray can help rule out the rarer case of calcaneus fracture.
