There are 26 bones in your foot, and your heel is the largest. The human heel provides rigid support for the weight of your body. When you are walking or running, your heel absorbs the impact when your foot hits the ground, and springs you forward into your next stride. The stress of walking places about 1.25 times your body weight onto your heel…2.75 times when running. Due to this, the heel can sometimes be damaged, causing a painful injury.
