A comprehensive classification of talalgia (heel pain) is proposed including different talalgias caused by systemic or extraregional diseases and regional ones, inferior talalgia, medial talalgia, lateral talalgia and posterior talalgia. Talalgia is cause of foot pain eight times less frequent than metatarsalgia elsewhere in our experience and a thought understanding of its multivariate etiology and pathogenesis is of utmost importance for any clinical dealing with foot disorders. This matrix, moreover, offers a tool for classifying all types of talalgia, by means of an alphanumeric system in a way useful for both analytical and clinical purpose.
