Heel Spurs

A heel spur is a calcium deposit that causes a bone protrusion on the heel bone. Heel spurs may be hereditary and asymptomatic or secondary plantar fasciitis.  Symptoms include intense pain when rising in the morning and/or dull, aching pain in the heel throughout the day

Heel Spurs may be treated conservatively with strengthening and stretching exercises, custom orthotics and shockwave therapy. For more severe cases, Platelet Rich Plasma injections (PRP) are recommended. In some cases, conservative treatments are not effective and surgical intervention is required. In such instances, the surgeon would release the painful contracted tissue from the heel bone.
