  MedlinePlus Medical Encyclopedia: Heel pain
Plantar fasciitis is inflammation of the thick connective tissue on the sole of your foot that attaches to your heel.
The pain is usually felt at the bottom of your heel and is often worse in the morning because of stiffness that occurs overnight.
Heel bursitis (inflammation of the back of the heel) can be caused by landing hard or awkwardly on the heel, or by pressure from shoes.

 Heel Spurs- Health Encyclopedia and Reference
The heel spur (or calcaneal spur) is a nail-like growth of calcium around the ligaments and tendons of the foot where they attach to the heel bone.
The heel bone forms one end of the two longitudinal arches of the foot.
These arches are held together by ligaments and are activated by the muscles of the foot (some of which are attached beneath the arches and run from the front to the back of the foot).
