Heel pain can be from various causes including degenerative arthritis, bone spurs, plantar fasciitis in addition to various other possible processes. If it does recur then it would certainly be useful to evaluate further to identify the cause. Treatment is based on the diagnosis and sometimes for benign causes treatment is symptomatic whereas for more serious causes there may be the need to pursue more aggressive treatments. With limited information I would be unable to comment further but would suggest starting a discussion with your primary physician who can then proceed with some work up and may also proceed with a referral to a specialist such as Orthopedics or Rheumatology. I would not want you to worry based on the information provided but would certainly advise some further work up to assess the underlying cause.
I hope the above information is useful for you.
Heel pain is a very common condition. Most times it is plantar fasciitis that can be treated with conservative care. I usually recommend a proper runners stretch three times a day and use of Super Feet orthoses.
