Heel spurs are calcium deposits the bone makes on the calcaneus (heel bone) that build up over time, until they can potentially cause issues. This process happens in response to stress, friction, or pressure, and sometimes in conjunction with plantar fasciitis – a common source of heel pain.
By itself, a spur can go unnoticed. Issues arise, though, when a spur digs into soft tissues around it. In such an instance, you will likely want to undergo heel spur treatment. We will first attempt to address the issue with noninvasive methods. If these fail to provide sufficient relief, we may need to perform surgery on the affected plantar fascia.
Heel pain treatment is one of the services we provide here at Massapequa Podiatry Associates, but we offer many others to cover the full spectrum of foot and ankle issues that can arise.
