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.)
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.
• Radial Shockwave and Physiotherapy

• Taping /strapping stressed muscles and tendons
• Orthotics- Proper shoes/inserts
• Weight loss/ diet
There are a variety of treatment options and techniques that can help cure a heel spur.
