Are Heel Spurs causing you discomfort? Let us help!
Heel spurs are a bony growth that occurs on the underside of your heel bone (calcaneus). Due to excessive pressure/stress, the body attempts to calcify the insertion of the plantar fascia (ligament like structure on the sole of the foot) to its attachment on the heel bone. There is usually associated inflammation in the area which causes the pain. Heel spur syndrome and plantar fasciitis are often referred to as the same condition.
