Plantar heel pain (PHP) is one of the most common foot pain conditions treated by clinicians. A range of terms have been used over the last 300 years to describe pain experienced under the plantar aspect of the heel. These terms all focus on specific pathologies even though the underlying pathology of PHP remains largely unknown. In this course, the first in a series of courses on Plantar Heel Pain Syndrome, Bernice Saban discusses the various terms used to describe PHP before exploring the prevalence, location and behaviour of PHP.


The aim of this course is to increase your knowledge about the description, prevalence, location and behaviour of plantar heel pain.
