A bone spur in the heel is called a heel spur and it is caused by a calcium protrusion on the bottom of the foot right under the heel bone. It can make walking painful in varying degrees. The pain is often worse in the morning, after resting and can come and go depending on other factors. The spur growth can be caused by an injury, arthritis in the foot, Reiter’s disease, diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis, and other conditions. You can have these spurs without realizing it, or they can cause debilitating pain. This pain is due to the spur inflaming the area around it and causing jolts of pain against the nerve receptors on the ankle or bottom of the foot, depending on the location.
The treatment depends on your symptoms. The first goal is to reduce inflammation and pain. Heel lifts and shoe inserts are helpful in reducing pain and stress on the foot. â€‹Your chiropractor NYC will study the anatomy of your spur and decide how to proceed. In rare cases, surgery may be needed.
