Pressure sores on the heel are very common for patients that spend extended periods of time in bed. Sustained pressure on your heel (bony prominence) dramatically increases to risk of acquiring these pain and long-lasting sores. It's estimated that the cost of care to treat a heel ulcer can exceed $10,000 per episode.
