A heel spur is a foot condition caused by calcium deposits which produce a bony growth that extends between your heel bone and your arch. Although they are often painless, they can cause heel pain.

Heel spurs are often associated with plantar fasciitis which is a painful inflammation of the fibrous band of connective tissue that runs along the bottom of your foot and connects the heel bone to the ball of your foot. Detecting heel spurs can be challenging because they are not always visible and need X-rays to be detected or assessed by a professional.

SYMPTOMS OF HEEL SPURS

Type of pain you can experience:

  • Sharp pain similar to a knife or a pin at the bottom of the feet when getting out of bed in the morning
  • Sharp pain returns when standing up after sitting for a prolonged period of time.
  • Symptoms may include pain, inflammation, and swelling at the front of your heel.

CAUSES OF HEEL SPURS

Calcium deposits occur over a period of time and are caused by strains on foot muscles, ligaments, stretching of the plantar fascia, and repeated tearing of membrane around the heel bone. Heel spurs are common among people who indulge in lots of physical activity (running, jumping, etc.)

  • Running, Jogging & Jumping
  • Poorly Fitted (lacking appropriate arch support)
  • Being Overweight & Pregnancy
  • Aging
  • Prolonged Standing on Your Feet
  • Flat Feet & High Arches
  • Long-Term Muscle & Ligament Strain
  • Arthritis
  • Walking Gait Issues
  • Wearing Flip-Flops Too Often

In some cases of heel spurs occur in people who have plantar fasciitis. The plantar fascia is a thick band of connective tissue that originated on the bottom surface of the heel bone and extends along the sole of the foot towards the toes.

Heel spurs are not permanent. Plantar fasciitis in some cases is the main cause of heel spurs, but it is very treatable with Radial Shock Waves and Regular Physiotherapy in 90%of cases, once inflammation is reduced, the pain will disappear.

The art of healing comes from nature, not from the physician. Therefore the physician must start from nature, with an open mind.
